Shaping and Negotiating Sacred Terrain: The Sanctuary of The Great Gods on Samothrace
All who come to the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace keenly experience the controlling force the landscape exercises over the sacred environment. In our current research, therefore, we privilege the complex terrain as a key determinant in the construction of sacred space and ritual experience; we focus on the significance of connective spaces and passages joining key regions of the Sanctuary; and we recognize the interplay of local and imported construction materials as a vital component in the economic, political, and design network of the Sanctuary. In this seminar, we present how our recent work in petrography, archaeology, and 3D modeling have helped to reshape our understanding of the Sanctuary.
