Published in 1905, this book by A. S. Wilkins was intended to provide an introduction to the history of the ancient Roman system of education. It begins from a purely national stage, considering the basis of education in the early Roman Republic, before tracing the historical influence of the flood of Greek culture which poured into Rome from the middle of the third century BC and lasted well into the age of the Empire. Elementary and higher education are examined in respective chapters, and the subject of state endowment is also considered. Wilkins quotes freely from original sources without always providing English translations, so some knowledge of Latin is expected.
