Ancient Greece

The book "Ancient Greece: Temples and Sanctuaries" provides a synoptic but complete analysis and description of the most important Greek archaeological sites. The architecture of the archaic and classical periods are here presented in the most direct possible way: historical details, rich photographic material, analytical plans of the monuments, drawings of reconstructions and their juxtaposition with today's appearance and frequent references to mythological sources and ancient Greek ritual practices. There is also information on the museums that accompany the archaeological sites, where these exist, to create perhaps the fullest general I archaeological guide that has ever been published in Greece. An experienced team of archaeologists has compiled the presentations of the archaeological sites, arranged along geographical lines: central Greece, the Peloponnese, Macedonia, Epirus, the Aegean, the Ionian and Crete. In the back pages the reader shall also find an extremely useful "Guide to ancient Greek architecture" and a synoptic architectural glossary. All architecturally and historically important temples are included in this book. Of course, the most analytical descriptions are preserved for the large and famous sanctuaries of the ancient Greek world: the Acropolis, Delphi, Olympia, etc. Alongside these, the writing team has decided to include a series of monuments that, although they do not belong chronologically or thematically to the main thrust of the book, it would certainly surprise the reader and traveller if they had been omitted. These are archaeological sites of great importance, dating to the prehistoric period (AkrotiriThera, the palaces of Knossos, Phaestus and Malia, Mycenae) and Hellenistic and Roman times (Vergina, Dion, Philippi, ancient Thessaloniki and the Roman forum of Athens). Even so, the classical period remains the central core of the book, of which Lewis Mumford, one of the 20th century's most important historians and philosophers of science, has said: "It is the period when thought remains a little suspended with a sensitive gaze that runs over the natural world, it watches, researches, observes, and with a great leap, goes from rampant imagination to Logos, organised knowledge."
