Greek temples[edit]

I want to clarify a point, over your recent edit to Parthenon. To say that there is no evidence that religious ceremonies took place inside Greek temples in not accurate. This is a sweeping statement that is perhaps based on a misinterpretation of what might be considered a "religious ceremony". If a ceremony is considered to apply only to a gathering of people, like a church service, then indeed it is probable that large gatherings took place outside, rather than inside the temples.

On the other hand, a "religious ceremony" can be a very small affair, involving only one person. (For example, a Christian priest, alone within the vestry or sacristy of a church, may perform a fairly elaborate ceremony, in robing and preparing the vessels and sacrament for Communion.) In fact, the presence of very large statues of a deities within Greek temples would seem to be very good indiction that religious ceremonies took place there.
