Greek and Roman Stoicism and Some of Its Disciples

Excerpt from Greek and Roman Stoicism and Some of Its Disciples: Epictetus Seneca and Marcus Aurelius Stoicism was the noblest system of morals developed within the pale of Greek philosophy. For over two centuries it was the creed, if not the philosophy, of the Roman people, whose type of character from the first was moulded on the Stoic lines. The multitude of great and memorable truths taught by the Spanish courtier, the Phrygian slave, and the Roman emperor, inculcating as they did the loftiest morality, high standards of action, of absolute self-sacrifice for the sake of virtue, and representing most powerfully the moral and religious convictions of the age, no doubt prepared the way for Christianity, as well as tinctured the thought of modern ages. Stoicism contributed the noblest men, and the loftiest conception virtue and morality that we meet with in history before the time of Paul.
