The Oracle of Delphi and Ancient Oracles

Welcome to The Oracle of Delphi and Ancient Oracles. This an organized, annotated list of more than 160 links on Greek and Roman oracles, including Delphi, Dodona, Didyma and others. It includes everything from serious academic articles and books to material pitched to grade-school kids.

Oracles, Divination and Ancient Culture

The site is a spin-off from my five-year-old site Ancient Divination and Astrology on the Web. As I say there, "I am not a believer in astrology or any other form of divination. I am instead interested in ancient culture, of which astrology and divination are important aspects." As with astrology, web pages about ancient oracles are subject to a lot of false or highly-debatable notions. I make it my strict policy to include anything remotely useful, but my comments strive to identify the most reliable material. Not all this material is explicitly "academic," but all of it has a scholar's attention to evidence and personal detachment.

Pictures of Oracles (over 85 pictures)

Here are thumbnail galleries with over 85 pictures of Delphi, Didyma and Dodona.
