This two-volume book, originally published in German in 1824, was revised, corrected and enlarged for this 1830 English translation. Carl Otfried Müller (1797–1840) was a pioneering scholar of ancient civilisations and Greek mythology, who taught at Göttingen for twenty years, but died in Greece during an archaeological expedition. This, the second volume, focuses first on the political institutions of the Dorians, their monetary systems and taxation. The second part discusses domestic life, architecture and dress, the treatment of women, marriage, manners and education. Finally, Müller describes music and literature, the distinction between tragedy and comedy, and lyric poetry. This substantial study was a landmark in its field and is still consulted by scholars and students of ancient history, philosophy and religion.
