Description - Athletes and Oracles by Catherine Morgan

This book studies the origins and development of cult practice at Olympia and Delphi, challenging many assumptions about the nature and role of the archaeological record. Professor Morgan's study is exceptional for the emphasis placed on the two sites in their contemporary local contexts. The book concludes with the first detailed study of the wider roles of Olympia and Delphi as major sanctuaries in Archaic Greece.
