Abstract

Ancient Greece and Rome were fascinated with India, especially after Alexander the Great turned his army back from its edge. In the 2015 C. May Marston Lecture, Dr. Ewald explores ways in which ancient Classical literature portrays India, including as a fantastic land guarded by a wall of ivory and as an important trading partner for luxury goods. In addition, Greece, Rome, and India all had highly developed literary and pictorial traditions. Professor Ewald's lecture reviews the ancient literature and suggests ways these traditions borrowed from one other.
