This paper gives a view of the making of the Parthenon in Athens Greece around 447 BCE. The paper discusses how the Parthenon will enjoy the reputation of having the spirit of the practically perfect Doric temple ever built. The paper asserts persuasively that this marvelous wonder has to be experienced to be understood.

From the Paper:

"Well it has finally arrived, the day we have all been awaiting for, Athens and indeed many parts of Greece have held their breath in awe as builders and slaves alike have followed the masons and master masons along the track to the site of our lands soon to be greatest endeavors.
"I would say even the Goddess whom we love so much and whom our city is graced with her name that of Athena, fair Athena would be proud to se the great marvel made for her and the gods.
"As the veil is removed I can see the looks of awe and wonder upon the faces of the public. It is the most wonderful building I have ever seen, to describe the Parthenon fully I would have to speak to the creator and architect yet little is known of them, the great Ictinus and his co -workers Callicrates with Phidias.
"They began work on this great temple during the reign of our great leader Pericles. They were given the commissions on several other temples through out our great land including the Telesterion at Eleusis and the Temple of Apollo at Bassa."
