Cicero said, “To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?”
To many people, “history” conjures thoughts of seemingly irrelevant and disconnected facts, dates, and dead people. The study of history, however, is so much more. It orients us in place and time, enables us to understand the movement of ideas, provides models of evil to shun and virtue to emulate. Knowing history allows us to become better readers, as we comprehend not just ideas themselves, but the world into which they were born. Understanding history can even protect us from the errors of our own day, because, as King Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” In other words, studying history can help us grow in wisdom and virtue.
