Delphi - in many ways a meeting point

This volume tells the story of the oracle and monuments of Delphi, and shows contemporary photographs of the monuments and of objects in the beautiful museum nearby.
The oracle of Delphi was the most visited and respected oracle throughout ancient Greece. From 590 BC the Pythian games took place in Delphi, competitions in music, poetry and sport.
In Roman times Delphi went through a late period of prosperity as result of the interest of some emperors, among them Augustus and Hadrian.
In 380 AD the oracle of Delphi was closed by the Christian emperor Theodosis I, who had declared Christianity to state religion.
