Our special guest on this passion week episode, 2024 (Good Friday, Easter Weekend) is the former Professor of Ancient History at The Sorbonne in Paris, Numa Denis Fustel de Coulanges. He joins us to discuss what he calls "The Omnipotence of the State: The Ancients Knew Nothing of Individual Liberty", his chapter XVII of The Ancient City (La Cite Antique), published in 1864 and translated into English by Willard Smith in 1873. My copy was published by Doubleday in 1956. Fustel de Coulanges joins us through his writing as we see how Christianity and its Jewish ancestors changed all that, with a Good Friday reflection for today. Here's a Brett Kavanaugh resource on the purpose of separation of powers to protect individual liberty (p. 22) : The Republican Professor is a pro-correctly-contemplating-individual-liberty-and-separation-of-powers podcast. Therefore, welcome Numa Denis Fustel de Coulanges !
