It turns out there was divorce in ancient Greece too. In fact, the divorce could be demanded not only by the husband, but also by the wife. If the spouse wanted to divorce, he should have returned the dowry to his wife, which he received by her wife, and to ensure the financial survival of the spouse during the first few years after the divorce. If there were children, the husband left them with his mother, and if he entered the remarriage with his new wife, he could not appear with her in people until his ex-wife joined the remarriage. If the divorce was requested by the spouse, it should have proved to the local elders the right evidence that there are serious reasons for the dissolution of the marriage. The most serious reason the elder has always hosted was the material insolvency of the spouse’s life. Also in the legislation of Σολώνειο Νομοθεσία it is said that divorce is accepted if a man does not make love with his wife at least three times a month. The law freed the husband from the fulfillment of marital duties within one week a month, due to […]

Greece has been famous for many years not only due to art, architecture and philosophy, but also due to talented scientists. But why did the residents of Athens manage to make such a big push in development? How did the process of transforming the primal into antique civilization pass? The premise of the development of scientific thought in Greece Geopolitical factors have a huge impact on the development of Greek culture and science: a close neighborhood with ancient civilizations like Egypt and Babylon contributed to the exchange of knowledge obtained from past generations. Most of our ancient Greek scientists have spent a significant part of their lives on travel. Pythagoras, for example, spent his youth in Egypt, where he studied mathematics, geometry and natural sciences. The First Greek traveler, the records of which remained and reached our days, was Gannon. The Expedition with him led by the Senate of Carthage. The goal was very difficult, but necessary – the colonization of new lands in the western part of the African continent. After sailing the Gibraltar Strait, a lot of galleys with more than 30 internally displaced persons on board reached the tropics. When the expedition began to feel […]
