Greek Mythology

The gods could change themselves into animals and other things and were vulnerable to human fables and passions. Olypmian gods or goddeses looked like men and women. In ancient Greece, stories about god, godesses, heroes, and monsters were an important part of everyday life.

The following creatures are mythological that featured in the myths: the Pegasus, Centaur, Sphinx Cyclops, unicorns, minotaurs, and dragons of all sorts. Many of these creatures have become almost as well known as the gods and heroes who share their stories.

The Greek Mythological characters, stories, themes, and lessons have shaped art and literature for thousands of years. The earliest Greek myths were part of an oral tradition that began in the Bronze Age, and their plots and themes unfolded gradually in the written literature of the archaic and classical periods. The myths explained everything from religious rituals to the weather and gave them meaning to the world people saw arounjd them. The authors of the Greek myths didn't introduce the gods or goddesses since the readers had already been familiar with them.
