The first part of the study deals with the analysis of the sacrificial rituals and their impact on the militarism of Ancient Greece. The oracles, as the part of the army, together with captains, determined the strategy before the important decisions to align them with the “will of the gods” based on the oracles’ signs. These included not only situations during the military campaigns themselves but also ahead of them. In this case, the oracles played a significant role, in particular the one in Delphi. However, the sacrifices were also important during crossing borders or rivers, along with the significant role of atmospheric phenomena such as the Solar or Moon eclipse.
