Abstract

This thesis shall examine the role of religion in human affairs as set forth in Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War and to note the effect religion had upon men. Further, we shall examine how the different understandings between Athens and Sparta on the role of the divine affected each city's foreign and domestic policies.
