The Seven Wonders of the World (or the Seven Wonders of the Ancient

popular among HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Greece»
\o «Ancient Greece» Hellenic sight-seers and only includes works

«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandria%2C_Egypt» \o «Alexandria,

writings have not survived, except as references. The earliest extant
version of a list of seven wonders was compiled by HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antipater_of_Sidon» \o «Antipater of
Sidon» Antipater of Sidon , who described the structures in a poem
around HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/140_BC» \o «140 BC»
140 BC :

I have set eyes on the wall of lofty Babylon on which is a road for
chariots, and the statue of Zeus by the Alpheus, and the hanging
gardens, and the Colossus of the Sun, and the huge labour of the high
pyramids, and the vast tomb of Mausolus; but when I saw the house of
Artemis that mounted to the clouds, those other marvels lost their
brilliancy, and I said, ‘Lo, apart from Olympus, the Sun never looked on
aught so grand.’

– Antipater, Greek Anthology IX.58

A later list, under various titles like De septem orbis spactaculis and
traditionally misattributed to the engineer HYPERLINK

The Greek category was not «Wonders» but «theamata», which translates
closer to «must-sees». The list that we know today was compiled in the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_Ages» \o «Middle Ages»
Middle Ages —by which time many of the sites were no longer in
existence. Since the list came mostly from ancient Greek writings, only
sites that would have been known and visited by the ancient Greeks were
included. Even as early as 1600 BC, tourist HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graffiti» \o «Graffiti» graffiti was
scrawled on monuments in the Egyptian HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valley_of_the_Kings» \o «Valley of the

Antipater’s original list replaced the Lighthouse of Alexandria with the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ishtar_Gate» \o «Ishtar Gate»
Ishtar Gate . It wasn’t until the 6th century AD that the list above was
used. Of these wonders, the only one that has survived to the present
day is the Great Pyramid of Giza. The existence of the Hanging Gardens
has not been definitively proven. Records show that the other five
wonders were destroyed by natural disasters. The Temple of Artemis and
the Statue of Zeus were destroyed by fire, while the Lighthouse of
Alexandria, Colossus, and Mausoleum of Maussollos were destroyed by
earthquakes. There are sculptures from the Mausoleum of Maussollos and
the Temple of Artemis in the HYPERLINK

Seven Wonders lists about the Middle Ages

Seven Wonders lists about the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_Ages» \o «Middle Ages» Middle Ages
are existing historical lists for which there is no unanimity of
opinion about origin, content or name. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l «_note-carrington» \o «» [1] These
historical lists go by names such as «Wonders of the Middle Ages»
(implying no specific limitation to seven), «Seven Wonders of the Middle
Ages», «Medieval Mind» and «Architectural Wonders of the Middle Ages».
The lists are more properly seen as a continuing type or HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genre» \o «Genre» genre in the Seven
Wonders tradition than a specific list.

It is unlikely the lists originated in the Middle Ages. Brewer’s calls
them «later list[s]» HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l
«_note-brewers» \o «» [2] suggesting the lists were created after the
Middle Ages. This is supported because the word HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medieval» \o «Medieval» medieval was not
even invented until the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enlightenment» \o «Enlightenment»
Enlightenment -era, and the concept of a «Middle Age» did not become
popular until the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16th_century» \o «16th century» 16th
century . Further, the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanticism» \o «Romanticism» Romanticism
movement glorified all things related to the Middle Ages, or more
specifically anything pre-Enlightenment era, suggesting such lists would
have found a popular audience in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Some items found on some of the lists are not technically from the
Middle Ages (according to modern historical standards), but we know the
lists were not created by modern medieval historians, so such standards
did not apply.

Modern lists

In the tradition of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, many other
lists of wonders have been proposed, including both human feats of
engineering and wonders of Nature. However, these lists are rather
informal, and there is no consensus on any particular list.
