The Academy, Designed by Theofil Hansen and completed in 1885, is flanked by the National Library and the University of Athens. Known as the 'trilogy', these three neo classical buildings are considered to be the finest examples of the Greek architectural order.

Modern "Academy" in Athens[edit]

What about this place? I wanted to link to this article (about an older, more famous place with the same name) from Athens, but there's no mention of the new place in Athens.

Police academy[edit]

Why is this not mentioned? --Ballchef 05:49, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Seconded. Neutralitytalk 23:35, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
it has its own complete article

Decree of 529 A.D.[edit]

It would be excellent to have a short article on the Decree of 529 by Justinian, by itself. It's an immensely important event, since it signals the end of Antiquity. I am not, sadly, qualified to write it, but I'll set up an illiterate stub if someone else will say something. -- N. Harris User:NaySay

Fuller history of Plato's Academy[edit]

There needs to be a separate section on Plato's academy 82.35.49.241

Secondary educational institutions[edit]

In line with the definition as a secondary educational institution, all secondary schools in the United States (and perhaps some outside) run by the Seventh-day Adventist Church are called academies. I would guess there are more than 100 of these. --Cromwellt|talk|contris 21:27, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Delisted GA[edit]

This article was delisted due to lack of inline citations (WP:WIAGA criteria 2b). Tarret 23:25, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

There! let it stay de-"listed". Even following the process feels like a waste of time. --Wetman 11:17, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

The Academy[edit]

Currently, 'The Academy' redirects to 'academy'. Maybe it should redirect to 'Plato's Academy' since 'The Academy' seems to refer to an actual institution rather than the general idea of an academy. Ben davison (talk) 17:19, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

No early document of freedom of religion[edit]

I removed the words that the convention by which the expelled philosophers of Plato's Academy after 529 could return to Athens was a "document of freedom of religion". Firstly, there is not the least evidence that those philosophers -- mostly dedicated to philosopher Plotinus and/or Neoplatonism -- were religious persons, i.e. believed in ancient Greek deities like, for example, Zeus, Hades etc. So, if at all, it would be a document of freedom of science in Christian countries... Do not make me laugh...! Secondly, there is no evidence that they could teach ancient Greek philosophy (Neoplatonism) -- which due to Christian "freedom of science" proved by those early "deeds of freedom of science" even in the beginning of the 13th century became forbidden. Thirdly, there is enough very, very, early evidence for freedom of religion -- much more prior to 529 -- since intolerance on different beliefs is nothing but a Christian "contribution" to human history. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.227.66.195 (talk) 14:17, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Modern institutions[edit]

I am curious as to why the United States Air Force Academy is listed under "Modern Institutions" while neither the United States Military Academy at West Point nor the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst are mentioned. Both USMA and RMAS are over 150 years older than USAFA and may be considered the standard-bearers for military officer training worldwide when considering the amount of foreign national cadets that apply to attend each academy. It seems curious, then, that they not be included alongside USAFA. 98.176.236.30 (talk) 11:53, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

UK Public School?[edit]

"As a British school type, privately funded Academies first became popular in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. At this time the offer of a place at an English public school" Needs clarified as whether that means Public_school_(government_funded) or Public_School_(UK). Most people around the world might assume the former while people in UK, and given the context, might assume the latter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.6.124.98 (talk) 21:15, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

Error in link[edit]

Error in link[edit]

The link Illuminati does not lead to the correct article. The sentence indicates that it was an organisation founded in Rome in 1598; the linked article refers to a 18th century Bavarian organisation. Since this was newer, I suppose it should be renamed Illuminati (Bavarian) and a new page Illuminati (Roman) ought to be created for the much older Roman accademia.
