Student Discount offered for "The Trial of Pericles" at National Hellenic Museum

The National Hellenic Museum (NHM) is offering Chicago-Kent College of Law students half off the admission price for its presentation of the Trial of Pericles, Wednesday, April 17, 7:00 PM, at the Harris Theater.

This is the latest installment of NHM’s Trial Series that takes legal cases and controversies from the pages of history and tries them before an audience to demonstrate the enduring relevance of these ancient disputes. You will witness talented legal minds litigating the fate of Pericles, known as the great hero of Athenian democracy.

In 451 B.C.E., Pericles dramatically changed the Athenian Constitution to revoke the citizenship of those without two Athenian parents, claiming this was necessary to protect Athens from foreign influence. Many viewed his actions as tyrannical because citizens lost their civil liberties, including the right to vote.

Now, it's up to you, the audience, to decide: Was Pericles a hero or a tyrant?
