Abstract

This book examines how different agents and institutions within the Danish
nation state have situated themselves within this complex landscape of
competing appropriations of classical antiquity from the eighteenth century
to the present day. In particular, it focuses on the use of classical heritages
to construct both European and national identities (in the plural) and especially
on how Danes in this period have engaged with a sense of European
commonality through their engagements with the classical past
