Delphi was inhabited since the Mycenaean times (14th – 11th century B.C.) by small settlements who were dedicated to the Mother Earth. The worship of Apollo as the god of light, harmony and order, was established between the 11th and 9th century B.C. Slowly over the next five centuries the sanctuary grew in size and importance. During the 8th century B.C. Delphi became internationally known for the Oracular powers of Pythia. the priestess who sat on a tripod, inhaled ethylene gasses, and muttered incomprehensible words that foretold the future. The ancient people of the Mediterranean had such faith in Pythia’s view of the future, that no major decision was made without consulting the Oracle of Delphi first. Greek and foreign dignitaries, heads of state, and common people made a pilgrimage to the Delphi sanctuary, and paid large amounts of money to receive an oracle from Pythia.
