Vol 7, No 1: Museum of Light: The New Acropolis museum and the Campaign to Repatriate the Elgin Marbles

A series decorative sculptures, removed from the Parthenon by Lord Elgin in 1801-03 and purchased by the British Museum in 1816 are the center of a debate about whether to repatriate them to the Acropolis Museum so that viewers can enjoy them bathed in natural Attic light. This paper argues that repatriation is more political than aesthetic in nature and that the goal to bathe the sculptures in light goes against the historical context of the sculptures.
