• 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...

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.

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."

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 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.

Elgin Marbles from Britain. The Lebanese-born British lawyer, formally known as Amal Alamuddin, was mobbed by press on her arrival in the Greek capital, while on her way to a press conference on the reclamation of the Greek statues. The sculptures in question where used as decorations for 2000 years at the Parthenon temple on the Acropolis. Scottish nobleman Lord Elgin removed the statues in the Nineteenth Century following the Turkish occupation of Greece, later putting them on show at the British Museum in London. Clooney and her Greek counterparts maintain that the statues were illegally taken, which both the British Museum and government have refused to recognise.
