Introduction

The Greek myths were first passed on by word of
mouth, down through the violence of a dark age. The
two or three centuries beginning about 1125 B.C.E.
w e re marked by strife and turmoil. The course of civilization
was set back by centuries. Later Greeks, looking
back through the dim prism of the centuries of violence,
spoke of a time when heroes walked the eart h .
These exceptional men and women fought monsters,
p e rf o rmed superhuman feats and consorted with the
gods themselves.
The Ancient Greeks were polytheists and believed
in a multitude of immortal deities. The greatest of
these lived on the remote heights of Mount Olympus
but were by
no means aloof from the mortals below.
The Olympian gods communicated with
their subjects by omens and oracles. Spokespersons for
the divine, oracles answered questions, often in riddles.
The greatest was at Delphi. The gods decided the
outcome of athletic contests and battles. They even
took up arms themselves. And they aided or hindere d
the heroes in their quests................ etcetera; etcetera
