Klassiske Studier inviterer igen i år til en række spændende forelæsninger, og de lægger ud med ingen ringere end Michael Scott, University of Warwick, kendt fra de britiske TV-dokumentarer om Romerriget, Grækenland, Delfi, det græske drama, m.fl.


Om sin forelæsning skriver Michael Scott:

It is now commonly accepted that Greek ritual practice was hugely varied in almost every aspect of its business - with different practices being required for different gods in different places at different times. Users of Greek sanctuaries in turn were provided with guidance on how to conduct ritual correctly at sanctuaries, particularly through sacred laws. This paper examines the spatial positioning of these laws within sanctuaries. It asks two key questions. First, what (if anything) did particular kinds of laws gain from their spatial placement? Second, to what degree were particular kinds of laws always in similar spatial locations so that visitors knew where they needed to look to find the information they required to conduct ritual correctly.
