My Temple with a Frieze: Learning from the Greeks and Romans
Fritsche, Susan
Arts & Activities, v148 n5 p22-23 Jan 2011
Both Greeks and Romans placed the building of temples and sanctuaries high on their list of architectural priorities, as these structures were a source of public pride. The temples were built as shrines for the all-important gods and goddesses of the ancient world. The Parthenon is a great example of this. The frieze on the Parthenon shows scenes from the Great Panathanaea festival, when the people of the city paid tribute to Athena. In this article, the author describes how students designed their own temples. (Contains 2 resources and 1 online resource.)
