Abstract

The concept of a “sacred landscape” cannot be identified either with that of a “cultic landscape” (the integration of places devoted to worship within the diverse components of a landscape) nor with that of a “sacred space” (the organization of a social space by the spreading and hierarchical ordering of worship sites). In order to understand its specific nature, it is necessary to examine the processes of symbolic spatial constructions based on a performance site, which has a religious dimension in its own right. The study of the representation of Eleutherai in Euripides’ Antiope illustrates one of these processes, which creates a religious landscape between Athens and its margins.
