This chapter continues chapter six’s investigation in rarity beyond the limited edition through the example of Gregory Markopoulos and his dream of the Temenos. This chapter charts Markopoulos’s rejection of circulation and the development of the concept of the Temenos in his writings and correspondence from the late 1960s to its current incarnation: the quadrennial screenings of Eniaios (c.1947–91), an eighty-hour film cycle made to be projected only at the Temenos, that have taken place since 2004 at Rayi Spartias, a remote field in the Peloponnese.

Keywords:   Gregory Markopoulos, site-specificity, Richard Wagner, film architecture, pilgrimage, authenticity
