Welcome to the Thymele of Epidaurus - The Harmonics of Healing,
part of
 a series of affiliated websites about the world of ancient
Greek culture, architecture and archaeology.

The Harmonics of Healing 
is designed to give our
 audience
accurate and detailed information about the famous healing god
Asclepius and his sanctuary at Epidaurus in southern Greece.


Epidaurus is a large archaeological site located in the northeastern
Peloponnese, not far from Corinth,
and is famous for its sanctuary
in honor of
the healing god Asclepius.

Epidaurus was one of the most celebrated healing centers of the ancient Greek world. Huge 
numbers of individuals flocked here in search of cures
 when 
other healers and treatments had failed.

Those who visited the sanctuary for healing would sleep within the temenos in the hope of meeting the god in a dream in which Asclepius  would appear to them and perform a medical procedure or suggest a course of treatment to regain
 their health.

Due to the popularity of this thriving sanctuary, in the 4th
 and 3rd centuries BC the citizens of Epidaurus began an ambitious program of architectural expansion, erecting or enlarging and renovating many buildings and monuments.

Epidaurus would remain active into the 5th century AD when the
growing popularity of another divine healer, Jesus, eclipsed that of
Asclepius and other pagan gods. Still to this day, however, Epidaurus
is a 
remarkable place whose remains have preserved amazing tales of
miraculous healing and a very special
 building 
that is just now being
restudied in order to
 better understand its purpose and function:
the Thymele.

This circular building—sumptuous in detail and unique in
designhas provoked discussion and debate in academic
circles for centuries.

 


Epidaurus is a place of mystery, of superb architecture unlike anything else in ancient 
Greece, a locus of miracles and medicine.
