This paper discusses the role of the oracles in the classical world with respect to their function in conveying the words of the gods and goddesses to men. The paper also considers the political implications of the oracle's readings. The paper includes a description of how the oracles communicated with men.
From the Paper:"In the classical world hundreds of years before Christ the religious views of society were largely centered on the gods and goddesses of Greek and Roman Mythology. As with the Judeo-Christian God, these gods and goddesses ostensibly spoke to the people. Rather than communicating directly with individuals, however, they often spoke through their oracles or prophets. Divine prophecies proceeding from the gods could be imparted in several ways-orally, by signs through dreams and in oracles of the dead."
