Through the centuries the trial of Socrates has been seen in terms of an intellectual martyr's struggle against the power of the state. What exactly was Socrates accused of and how far was his cond...emnation actually an expression of popular feeling? Chris Emlyn-Jones examines the fragmentary evidence from literary and archaeological sources to reconstruct a context for Socrates' trial and condemnation.
