Worshippers…

Worshippers of the 12 ancient Greek gods of Mount Olympus, some dressed as warriors, pray during a ceremony under the Temple of Olympian Zeus in central Athens yesterday. The ceremony was the first of its kind at the 1,800-year-old temple since the polytheistic religion was banned by the Romans in the late 4th century. Some 200 people attended the event, organized by Ellinais, an Athens-based group which succeeded in getting the religion recognized by a Greek court last year.
