Multicultural Deities?

0 Conversations

This space is soon to be filled up with my contribution to the H2G2 University project all about the Greek gods. No, it won't have that title, but I felt that I should at least put *something* up there...

This is the part that'll be concerned with the cultural influences on the gods themselves (i.e.: how they got that way). I'll discuss influences from the Egyptian and Cycladic mythology to the evential adoption and adaptation of the Greek pantheon by the Romans.

Here's the official index for the project, run by Dastardly:

Project; The Greek Myths

...and here's the unofficial, but much more informative, version of the same index:

The unofficial index for Greek Mythology
