In recent decades this picture has changed, and scholars now stress the variety of local access rules. The Parthenon's Archaic predecessor already contained such a room. [45] All parts of this building are bulky and heavy, its columns reach a height of barely five times their bottom diameter and were very closely spaced with an intercolumniation of a single column width. The modern image of Greek temple architecture is strongly influenced by the numerous reasonably well-preserved temples of the Doric order. In Sicily the Valle dei Templi near Agrigento has an even larger group, with the main structure of the Temple of Concordia especially well-preserved. It is based on a 6-by-6-foot (1.8 m × 1.8 m) grid (the exact dimensions of its plinths). Temple of Hera I at Paestum. Large format figures decorate the pediments on the narrow sides. Here, most temple construction took place during the 6th and 5th centuries BCE. It is the foundation myth of the sanctuary itself, displayed here in its most prominent position. [9] At the same time, the rulers of the various Hellenistic kingdoms provided copious financial resources. [63] The columns had between 40 and 48 flutings, some of them cut to alternate between a wider and a narrower fluting. [55] Both temples had fronts of nine columns. Thereafter, only smaller structures were started, while older temples continued to be renovated or brought to completion if in an unfinished state. Already around 600 BCE, the demand of viewability from all sides was applied to the Doric temple, leading to the mirroring of the frontal pronaos by an opisthodomos at the back. Tout cela a été construit en proportion de la taille moyenne des humains, contrairement aux bâtiments tels que les pyramides égyptiennes, conçus pour s'adapter aux divinités. The 24 flutings of the columns are only indicated by facets in the lower third. For example, the Athenian Parthenon, first reconsecrated as a church was turned into a mosque after the Ottoman conquest and remained structurally unharmed until the 17th century AD. E.g., the temple of Zeus at Labraunda had only 6 × 8 columns,[65] the temple of Aphrodite in Samothrace only 6 × 9. Above it lay the dentil, the Ionic geison and the sima. Ionic volute capitals survive from the outer peristasis of the later rebuilding by Polycrates. Complex compositions visualised the back and forth of fighting for the viewer. The sponsors of Greek temples usually belonged to one of two groups: on the one hand public sponsors, including the bodies and institutions that administrated important sanctuaries; on the other hand influential and affluent private sponsors, especially Hellenistic kings. the Temple of Zeus in Nemea[50] and that of Athena in Tegea. Thus, the east pediment at Olympia depicts the preparations for a chariot race between Pelops and Oinomaos, the mythical king of nearby Pisa. La sculpture architecturale est composée de marbre de Parian et de Pentell. to reverse the system described above and deduce the smaller units from the bigger ones. The Heraion of Olympia[43] (c. 600 BCE) exemplifies the transition from wood to stone construction. Trouvez des photos de banque d’images de haute qualité, que vous ne trouverez nulle part ailleurs. The central composition is now taken over by mythological fights or by rows of human figures. For some time, the opisthodomos of the Athenian Parthenon contained the treasury of the Delian League, thus directly protected by the deity. Although a strong tendency to emphasize the front, e.g. Donated by Antiochus IV Epiphanes, it combined all elements of the Asian/Ionic order with the Corinthian capital. This process was certainly under way by the 9th century BCE, and probably started earlier.[3]. The external walls of the naos are crowned with a figural frieze surrounding the entire naos and depicting the Panathenaic procession as well as the Assembly of the Gods. For example, the antae of pronaos and opisthodomos are shortened so as to form simple pillars. Pronaoi and opisthodomoi were often closed off from the peristasis by wooden barriers or fences. Some famous temples, notably the Parthenon, the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, and the Temple of Asclepius, Epidaurus, had much of the naos floor occupied by a very shallow pool filled with water (Parthenon) or olive oil at Olympia. The building was the first Ionic temple to follow the Attic tradition of uniform column distances, the frontal differentiation was not practised any more. According to the three major orders, a basic distinction can be made between the Doric, the Ionic and the Corinthian temple. [64] The interior was structured with powerful pilasters, their rhythm reflecting that of the external peristasis. Depending on the architectural order, a different number of flutings are cut into the column shaft: Doric columns have 18 to 20 flutings, Ionic and Corinthian ones normally have 24. The canonical solution was found fairly soon by the architect Libon of Elis, who erected the Temple of Zeus at Olympia around 460 BCE. Only after a long phase of developments did the architects choose the alignment of the outer wall face with the adjacent column axis as the obligatory principle for Doric temples. Early Ionic columns had up to 48 flutings. [74] Two Ionic columns at the front are framed by two anta walls as in a Greek distyle in antis layout. In the light of this mutual influence it is not surprising that in the late 4th century BCE temple of Zeus at Nemea, the front is emphasised by a pronaos two intercolumniations deep, while the opisthodomos is suppressed. Like its precedents, the temple used differentiated column widths in the front, and had a higher number of columns at the back. The Mycenaean megaron (15th to the 13th century BCE) was the precursor for later Archaic and Classical Greek temples, but during the Greek Dark Age the buildings became smaller and less monumental. at Temple of Hera I, Paestum, and temples C, F and G at Selinus,[56] classifying them as pseudodipteroi. ARCHITECTURE DES TEMPLES GRECS Tout d'abord, il est important de préciser que le temple grec est consacré à une divinité. The inclination of its columns (which also have a clear entasis), is continued by architrave and triglyph frieze, the external walls of the naos also reflect it. Along the coast Selinunte was destroyed about 250 BCE by the Carthaginians and has the tumbled ruins of five temples, of which one has been rebuilt from the original material. The main measurement was the foot, varying between 29 and 34 cm from region to region. Contractors were usually only responsible for specific parts of the overall construction, as most businesses were small. The mud brick walls were often reinforced by wooden posts, in a type of half-timbered technique. Exemple : Temple d'Auguste à Pula (Croatie). [71] The arrangement of the pseudodipteros, omitting the interior row of columns while maintaining a peristasis with the width of two column distances, produces a massively broadened portico, comparable to the contemporaneous hall architecture. In some cases, votive offerings could also be directly affixed to the columns, as is visible e.g. They were not normally designed with consideration for their surroundings, but formed autonomous structures. These measurements were in set proportions to other elements of design, such as column height and column distance. Doric temples in Greater Greece rarely follow this system. In the Ionic or Corinthian orders, the frieze possesses no triglyphs and is simply left flat, sometimes decorated with paintings or reliefs. The basic principles for the development of Greek temple architecture have their roots between the 10th century BCE and the 7th century BCE. There are many where the platforms are reasonably complete, and some round drum elements of the columns, which were harder for later builders to re-use. An early form of this solution can be seen at Bassae, where the central column of the back portico remains free-standing, while the columns along the sides are in fact semi-columns connected with the walls by curved protrusions. Allemagne et France En Allemagne, l’architecture néo-grecque se trouve principalement dans deux centres, Berlin et Munich. The role of sponsor was increasingly taken by Roman magistrates of the Eastern provinces,[14] who rarely demonstrated their generosity by building temples. Its naos was executed as unroofed internal peristyle courtyard, the so-called sekos. It was typically necessary to make a sacrifice or gift, and some temples restricted access either to certain days of the year, or by class, race, gender (with either men or women forbidden), or even more tightly. The temple of Apollo at Didyma near Miletus, begun around 540 BCE, was another dipteros with open internal courtyard. The earliest stone columns did not display the simple squatness of the high and late Archaic specimens, but rather mirror the slenderness of their wooden predecessors. la temple Il peut être considéré comme la réalisation la plus difficile de 'l'architecture grecque. It was the first monumental peripteros of Ionia, erected between 350–330 BCE by Pytheos. Sa construction était basée sur une structure avec des piliers dans lesquels les dieux seraient vénérés. After the reintroduction of stone architecture, the essential elements and forms of each temple, such as the number of columns and of column rows, underwent constant change throughout Greek antiquity. Bienvenue pour cette première vidéo! [52] Frontality is a key feature of Ionic temples. The first temples were mostly mud, brick, and marble structures on stone foundations. The peristasis often had a depth of two column distances, e.g. Walls and columns were aligned axially, according to Ionic tradition. Le plan des temples grecs varient selon les édifices. Le fût de la colonne est composé généralement de 24 cannelures mais le fût peut être lisse si on utilise du marbre. It supports a further foundation of three steps, the crepidoma. One of the columns in the opisthodomos remained wooden at least until the 2nd century AD, when Pausanias described it. Columns became narrower, intercolumniations wider. Some temples are said never to be opened at all. According to ancient sources, Kroisos was one of the sponsors. [37], The costs could be immense. This 6 × 16 column temple already called for a solution to the Doric corner conflict. [83] Its architectural members are entirely in keeping with the Asian/Ionic canon. Chaque triglyphe tombe au centre de chaque colonne sauf ceux à chaque extrémité. About architectural sculpture: M. Oppermann: Retallack, G.J., 2008, "Rocks, views, soils and plants at the temples of ancient Greece". In Archaic temples, a separate room, the so-called adyton was sometimes included after the naos for this purpose. In, This page was last edited on 12 December 2020, at 20:00. Le littoral de Rhamnonte en Attique 2. As a result, the naos walls lost their fixed connection with the columns for a long time and could be freely placed within the peristasis. The basic principles for the development of Greek temple architecture have their roots between the 10th century BCE and the 7th century BCE. In spite of the eight columns on its front, the temple is a pure peripteros, its external naos walls align with the axes of the 2nd and 7th columns. The most common area for relief decoration remained the frieze, either as a typical Doric triglyph frieze, with sculpted metopes, or as a continuous frieze on Cycladic and later on Eastern Ionic temples. Though extremely solidly built, apart from the roof, relatively few Greek temples have left very significant remains; these are often those which were converted to other uses such as churches or mosques. It consists of several layers of squared stone blocks. The grid of the temple of Magnesia was based on a 12-by-12-foot (3.7 m × 3.7 m) square. This led to the development of the peripteros, with a frontal pronaos (porch), mirrored by a similar arrangement at the back of the building, the opisthodomos, which became necessary for entirely aesthetic reasons. Greek temples (Ancient Greek: ναός, romanized: naós, lit. A restricted space, the adyton, may be included at the far end of the naos, backing up on the opisthodomos. If the porch of a temple in antis has a row of usually four or six columns in front of its whole breadth, the temple is described as a prostylos or prostyle temples. There is no door connecting the opisthodomos with the naos; its existence is necessitated entirely by aesthetic considerations: to maintain the consistency of the peripteral temple and to ensure its visibility from all sides, the execution of the front has to be repeated at the rear. especially the frieze areas offered space for reliefs and relief slabs; the pedimental triangles often contained scenes of free-standing sculpture. All of this mathematical rigour is relaxed and loosened by the optical refinements mentioned above, which affect the whole building, from layer to layer, and element to element. J.C.. La tribu mycénienne va dominer sur la mer Égée entre 1630-1200 avant J.C…. After it had proved its adequacy, e.g. As marble is not entirely opaque, those naoi may have been permeated with a distinctive diffused light. The same proportions, in a more abstract form, determine most of the Parthenon, not only in its 8 × 17 column peristasis, but also, reduced to 4:9, in all other basic measurements, including the intercolumniations, the stylobate, the width-height proportion of the entire building, and the geison (here reversed to 9:4).[27]. Its Asian elements and its conception as a dipteros made the temple an exception in Athens. With the transition to stone architecture around 600 BCE, the order was fully developed; from then on, only details were changed, developed and refined, mostly in the context of solving the challenges posed by the design and construction of monumental temples. The elevation of Greek temples is always subdivided in three zones: the crepidoma, the columns and the entablature. Between the 6th and the late 4th century BCE, innumerable temples were built; nearly every polis, every Greek colony contained one or several. [77], The first dateable and well-preserved presence of the Corinthian temple is the Hellenistic rebuilding of the Olympieion of Athens, planned and started between 175–146 BCE. Le Pronaos est la partie située à l'avant du temple et qui précède le naos. As far as topographically possible, the temples were freestanding and designed to be viewed from all sides. On remarque que le chapiteau est plus travaillé, il est caractérisé par des volutes. Whereas the distinction was originally between the Doric and Ionic orders, a third alternative arose in late 3rd century BCE with the Corinthian order. Il prédomine en Asie Mineure et est aussi utilisé en Grèce. Columns could reach a height of 20 m. To design such large architectural bodies harmoniously, a number of basic aesthetic principles were developed and tested already on the smaller temples. [12][13], In the early 1st century BCE, the Mithridatic Wars led to changes of architectural practice. Néanmoins, le grec a continué à être favorable en Ecosse jusque dans les années 1870 au singulier personnage d’Alexander Thomson, connu sous le nom de “Thomson grec”. For the replacement, a crepidoma of ten or more steps was erected. Sa forme était simple, il était un prototype de maison carrée résidentiel. Le théâtre et le temple d'Apollon à Delphes 3. The columns of the inner peristasis had leaf decoration and no volutes. Since it was not technically possible to roof broad spaces at that time, these temples remained very narrow, at 6 to 10 metres in width. The uppermost layer, the euthynteria, partially protrudes above the ground level. Early examples probably include the Serapeum of Alexandria and a temple at Hermopolis Magna, both erected by Ptolemaios III. Apart from this exception and some examples in the more experimental poleis of Greater Greece, the Classical Doric temple type remained the peripteros. Special attention was paid to the decoration of the pedimental triangles, not least because of their size and frontal position. The small temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae survived in a rural location with most of its columns and main architrave blocks in place, amid a jumble of fallen stone. a 1:2 proportion. L’exemple le plus simple d’un temple grec est le templum in antis, une petite structure rectangulaire abritant la statue du culte. The oldest marble architraves of Greek architecture, found at the Artemision, also spanned the widest distances ever achieved in pure stone. Very few temples had an uneven number of columns at the front. In the Doric order, the entablature always consists of two parts, the architrave and the Doric frieze (or triglyph frieze). Le plan du temple grec, l’ordre du temple grec. J.C.. But in spite of such examples and of the positive conditions produced by the economic upturn and the high degree of technical innovation in the 3rd and 2nd centuries BCE,[11] Hellenistic religious architecture is mostly represented by a multitude of small temples in antis and prostyle temples, as well as tiny shrines (naiskoi). They could depict bowls and tripods, griffins, sphinxes, and especially mythical figures and deities. [79] Its columns, mostly still upright, stand on Attic bases without plinths, exceptional for the period. For cultic reasons, but also to use the light of the rising sun, virtually all Greek temples were oriented with the main door to the east. L’ordre dorique est le plus ancien des ordres, il aurait apparu durant la période archaïque de la Grèce soit entre le VIIIe et le Ve siècle av. There is very little evidence of Ionic temples in Magna Graecia. This is partially due to the influence of the architect Hermogenes of Priene, who redefined the principles of Ionic temple construction both practically and through theoretical work. Between the 9th century BCE and the 6th century BCE, the ancient Greek temples developed from the small mud brick structures into double-porched monumental "peripteral" buildings with colonnade on all sides, often reaching more than 20 metres in height (not including the roof). A pseudodipteros has engaged columns in the inner row of columns at the sides. A variant of that type has the opisthodomos at the back of the naos indicated merely by half-columns and shortened antae, so that it can be described as a pseudo-opisthodomos. the Temple of Apollo on Delos (c. 470 BCE), the Temple of Hephaistos at Athens and the temple of Poseidon on Cape Sounion. Battle scenes of all kinds were also a common theme of Ionic friezes, e.g. Pytheos was to be of major influence far beyond his lifetime. Les temples étaient souvent flanqués d'une colonnade (rangée de colonnes) soit sur deux, soit sur quatre côtés. TEMPLE DIPTERE : temple entouré de deux colonnades. Au-dessus de l'entablement se trouvent les frontonset la couverture de l'édifice. With a substructure of 55 × 115 m, the Artemision outscaled all precedents. Un temple grec est la figure la plus représentative de la culture de la Grèce antique. Considering that a worker was paid about two drachmas, that equals nearly 2 million euro (on a modern west European wage scale).

The crepidoma, columns, and architrave were mostly white. The temple was considered as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, which may be justified, considering the efforts involved in its construction. Architecture De Basilique .. Enregistrée depuis No fragments of architecture belonging to the Ionic order have been found from this time. Tholos. Linteau. Not one block of the building, not a single architrave or frieze element could be hewn as a simple rectilinear block. the Gigantomachy on the temple of Hekate at Lagina, or the Amazonomachy on the temple of Artemis at Magnesia on the Maeander, both from the late 2nd century BCE. The eponymous Corinthian capital of the Corinthian order is crowned by rings of stylised acanthus leaves, forming tendrils and volutes that reach to the corners of the abacus. - temple grec stock illustrations An inscription referring to his sponsorship was indeed found on one of the columns. The west pediment from the Temple of Artemis in Corfu (Greece), in the Archaeological Museum of Corfu, Statue of Apollo from the west pediment of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, Illustrations with the sculptures of the two pediments of the Parthenon, by James Stuart & Nicholas Revett in 1794, The Temple of Athena Nike with its very damaged pediments. Originally, payment was by person and day, but from the 5th century BCE onward, payment by piece or construction stage became common. The Temple of Isthmia, built in 690–650 BCE was perhaps the first true Archaic temple with its monumental size, sturdy colonnade and tile roof set the Isthmian temple apart from contemporary buildings.[6]. Fragments of two chryselephantine statues from Delphi have been excavated. The corners and ridges of the roof were decorated with acroteria, originally geometric, later floral or figural decorations. The Doric frieze was structured by triglyphs. [80][81][82], A further plan option is shown by the temple of Hekate at Lagina, a small pseudoperipteros of 8 × 11 columns. The more elaborate temples were equipped with very rich figural decoration in the form of reliefs and sculptures on the pediment. Such exceptions are probably connected with cult practice. All measurements in the Parthenon are determined by the proportion 4:9. Above the architrave of the peristasis, there was a figural frieze of 137 m length, depicting the amazonomachy. As a side effect, each preserved building block from the Parthenon, its columns, naos walls or entablature, can be assigned its exact position today. J.C. puis en haut relief. In proportion to the bottom diameter, the columns reached three times the height of a Doric counterpart. The resulting set of colonnade surrounding the temple on all sides (the peristasis) was exclusively used for temples in Greek architecture.[8]. The most complete remains are concentrated in Athens and southern Italy; several are described in more detail above, under their orders. 1967 p.129. 'dwelling', semantically distinct from Latin templum, "temple") were structures built to house deity statues within Greek sanctuaries in ancient Greek religion. The peristasis could also be used for cult processions, or simply as shelter from the elements, a function emphasised by Vitruvius (III 3, 8f). The beginnings of Greek temple construction in the Doric order can be traced to early in the 7th century BCE. When equipped with an opisthodomos with a similar distyle in antis design, this is called a double anta temple. The emphasis on the pronaos already occurred in the slightly older temple of Athena at Tegea, but there it was repeated in the opisthodomos. The acrolith was another composite form, this time a cost-saving one with a wooden body. In Italy, Paestum, some way south of Naples near what was once the northern limit of Magna Graecia (Greek Italy), has three early Doric temples in a row, amid the mostly Roman ruins of the city. Greek temples were often enhanced with figural decorations. The back room of the temple, the opisthodomos, usually served as a storage space for cult equipment. Il est prédominant en Grande Grèce, en Sicile. The few Greek temples in the Corinthian order are almost always exceptional in form or ground plan and are initially usually an expression of royal patronage. [4][5] [10] During this phase, Greek temples became widespread in southern Asia Minor, Egypt and Northern Africa. In Doric temples, however, the wooden roof construction, originally placed behind the frieze, now started at a higher level, behind the geison. One of the criteria by which Greek temples are classified is the Classical order chosen as their basic aesthetic principle. The metopes, separate individual tableaux that could usually not contain more than three figures each, usually depicted individual scenes belonging to a broader context. Linteau Corniche Chapiteau Temple Grec Grecque Plinthes Histoire De L'art Plate Plans Architecturaux. One of the few exceptions is the early Classical Temple D, an 8 × 20 columns peripteros, at Metapontum. For example, the oldest known Corinthian capitals are from the naoi of Doric temples.
