Posted on Sun 06 June 2021 in history

A temple located in Delphi where a priestess listened to questions, and delivered responses that were said to be from the Greek God Apollo. The priestess listened to the questions in a state of ecstasy that was believed to be caused by Apollo. Priests interpreted the responses and returned the answers to the querent in verse form. Responses were generally vague, general, or complicated by multiple interpretations.
