Delphi was once regarded as the center of the world. It was one of the most important intellectual and cultural sites of antiquity. Anyone who could afford it sought the advice of the oracle of Delphi before making a decision in both personal and public affairs. Some of these oracle sayings have survived to the present day. This program describes the faith of the ancient Greeks, whose ideas in fact often differ surprisingly from the conventional wisdom on this subject. Delphi’s impenetrable myths, its mysterious fortune-telling practices, and bloodthirsty animal sacrifices have left a trail which is still visible and palpable today, the legacy of a legendary oracle who influenced European history for almost 1000 years.
