Welcome to Plato’s Academy. A blog about everything Greek. My name is Theodore Nanos and I am a Greek-Canadian from Toronto, Canada. Here you will learn about people, places, art, philosophy, facts and quotes from the Greek Bronze Age, Ancient Greece, Medieval Greece and Modern Greece. The purpose of this blog is to educate the Greeks and PhilHellenes on the Greek culture. There will be 2-3 posts a week and posts will be a few paragraphs long in order to keep it short and simple, and may be accompanied by a video, pictures and links.
The name Plato’s Academy comes from the ancient Greek Academy that was founded by Plato. Founded in 387 B.C. in Athens, Plato’s Academy was a school where philosophers would go to discuss problems to be solved. The Academy was around for over 300 years until Lucius Cornelius Sulla (a Roman General) laid siege to Athens in 86 BC when the Academy was destroyed.
