Full description for Pilgrims and Pilgrimage in Ancient Greece
Exploring the religious motivations for pilgrimage, this text seeks to examine and reveal the main preoccupations of worshippers in Ancient Greece. Matthew Dillon looks at the main sanctuaries of Delphi, Epidauros and Olympia, as well as the lesser-known oracle of Didyma in Asia Minor and the festivals of the Isthmus of Corinth. He discusses the mode of travel to the sites, means of communication between pilgrims and the religious and ritual practices at the sanctuaries themselves.
