  • Send them back: The Parthenon Marbles should be returned to Athens

    This debate took place at Cadogan Hall on 11th June 2012. Event info: What's all this nonsense about sending the Parthenon Marbles back to Greece? If Lord Elgin hadn't rescued them from the Parthenon in Athens and presented them to the British Museum almost 200 years ago, these exquisite sculptures -- the finest embodiment of the classical ideal of beauty and harmony -- would have been lost to the ravages of pollution and time. So we have every right to keep them: indeed, returning them would set a dangerous precedent, setting off a clamour for every Egyptian mummy and Grecian urn to be wrenched from the world's museums and sent back to its country of origin. It is great institutions like the British Museum that have established such artefacts as items of world significance: more people...

  • Bonnie Greer on the Parthenon sculptures at the British Museum

    Playwright, author and British Museum trustee, Bonnie Greer celebrates the enduring beauty and humanity of the Parthenon Sculptures. The Parthenon was built as a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. It was the centrepiece of an ambitious building programme on the Acropolis of Athens. The temple's great size and lavish use of white marble was intended to show off the city's power and wealth at the height of its empire.

  • Christopher Hitchens - On PBS discussing the fate of the Parthenon marbles

    July 31, 2009. It's one of the great landmarks of history: the Parthenon in Athens, constructed in the 5th century B.C. It stands as a symbol of the cultural and political heights reached by the classical world. But it is today also at the center of a very modern debate: Who holds claim to a set of marble friezes (known as the "Elgin Marbles") that once adorned the structure? We have our own debate with James Cuno, the president and director of the Art Institute of Chicago and author of the recent book, "Who Owns Antiquity?: Museums and the Battle over Ancient Heritage," and Christopher Hitchens, columnist for Vanity Fair and author of the book, "The Parthenon Marbles: The Case for Restitution."

  • Seekers of the lost treasure: The curse of the Elgin marbles

    (1995) Seekers of the lost treasure: The curse of the Elgin marbles History Documentary hosted by Jeremy Irons, published by Discovery Channel in 1995. Episode: 3 In 1803, more than 200 pieces of marble statues and friezes, considered to be among the highest expressions of classical civilization, were removed from the ancient Parthenon in Athens and taken to England. The feat was the work of Scottish Lord Thomas Elgin, British Ambassador to Constantinople, in his attempt to rescue the pieces from certain devastation by Turkish troops. Instead of accolades for his accomplishment, Elgin met with imprisonment, bankruptcy and the loss of his wife. Even the marble he had tried to preserve became a subject of intense controversy, prompting poet Lord Byron to allegedly write, "What the Goths sp...

It is great institutions like the British Museum that have established such artefacts as items of world significance: more people see the Marbles in the BM than visit Athens every year. Why send them back to relative obscurity? But aren't such arguments a little too imperialistic? All this talk of visitor numbers and dangerous precedents -- doesn't it just sound like an excuse for Britain to hold on to dubiously acquired treasures that were removed without the consent of the Greek people to whom they culturally and historically belong? That's what Lord Byron thought, and now Stephen Fry is taking up the cause. We should return the Marbles as a gesture of solidarity with Greece in its financial distress, says Fry, and as a mark of respect for the cradle of democracy and the birthplace of rational thought.
