Podcast 4.4: Messages from the Gods – Apollo at Claros and Didyma

Here I discuss messages from the gods, or divination.  One way in which the gods were thought to communicate with individuals, groups, and communities was through oracles such as those of Apollo at Claros and Didyma.  This is part of series 4 (Honouring the Gods in the Roman Empire) of the Religions of the Ancient Mediterranean podcast.

    I’m interested in the fact that a priestess of Artemis consulted Apollo. Wasn’t Artemis concerned about losing her adherents, even her cultic functionaries, to another god?
