Abstract

In the twenty-first-century, when European countries, and Europe itself, are no longer a dominant actor in the global relations and, furthermore, are struggling to maintain their place among the great powers, Europeans frequently refer to their specific identity, values and contribution to the world. Among the specific characteristics of Europe one can undoubtedly place the unusual development on the continent, which would self-impose identities, culture, symbols and traditions deriving from ancient times and distant territories. Understood from this perspective of reception of the 'distant' and the 'foreign', the phenomena of the 'Classical Heritage' gains new contemporary dimensions, and could be considered as one of the important identity elements and certainly a distinctive historical tradition of modern Europeans and modern European nations.
