A Day at the Ekklesia


After reading the Greek reading for Chapter 21a (and ideally reading the culture essay, "Democracy in Action," Chapter 22), then summarize in Greek what happens at the Assembly.

  • Who attends the Ekklesia (and who, by implication, does not)?
  • What typical events occur at the beginning of each assembly? Who performs each action/ritual?
  • Who is permitted to speak? Who actually tends to speak? What background/class do they come from?
