  • [01] The School of Aristotle in Naoussa

  • [01] The School of Aristotle in Naoussa

    The School of Aristotle in Esvoria, Naoussa, is a place of universal interest with racing waters and deeply shaded-caves mentioned by writers of antiquity.

    It is the place where the greatest philosopher of Antiquity, Aristotle taught classical Greek thought and the ideals of Platonic philosophy to the son of the King of Macedonia Phillip II, Alexander, and the other nobles of the Macedonian court.

    The encounter of these two greatest personalities of the ancient world at the Nymphaion of Mieza -- Aristotle, the scientist, and the great military commander, Alexander - impacted the future of mankind, and of the entire Western Civilization.

    The Nymphaion, the sanctuary dedicated to the Nymphs, is situated in a very impressive natural landscape, where the ancient relics -the wall prop of a two-floor arcade of Ionic columns forming a is preserved - combined with the three natural caves which are found there -- constitute the main grounds of the school.

    The vertical surface of the rock, where the openings for supporting the roof's girders are discernable, comprised the back-end of the shady porch (stoa), (350 B. C. and after), where Aristotle taught "the ethical and political word" (Plutarch VII, 668) to the Macedonian nobility's young offspring.

    At the Archaeological Museum of Veroia, tiles and clay pugs from the porch (stoa) roof are on display.

    The landscape where the Master walked with his students on the riverbanks, full of paths with dense vegetation, while surrounding cool streams gushed from the springs and serenely flowed, is complemented by an even larger cave a little further off, with two carved entrances, and a distinct devotional use.
