NECROMANTIO THE LAND OF THE DEAD SOULS

The most famous necromancy is Ancient Greek history. According to ancient sources, the area where the lake Acherousia was located was considered to be the place of descent to the Underworld. The worshipers were going to the necromancy to meet the souls of the dead who acquired the ability to foresee the future, after their release from the body. Those who wanted to communicate with the souls and ask questions about their future were visiting Acheron’s necromancy. In order to get into the dark room and ask for the omen, they were staying in the oracle’s underground halls. Priests were meeting the visitors at the entrance and accompanying them to the reception rooms. Then, they were asking them some questions to find out the purpose of their visit. Thereafter, they were escorting them to the room where they were preparing to communicate with the spirits.

WALKING TO ACHERON TO THE SECRET GATE OF THE UNDERWORLD
