OLD MYTHS, OLD GODS, OLD HEROES HAVE NEVER DIED

Once there were gods great and beautiful, whose palms crushed whole villages, whose smiles ensured mortal love. They reigned over their world with words that shook the hearts of mountains, and their exploits became myths without number. From thrones (carved of clouds and bejeweled with snared lightning) they presided over a land teeming with monsters, men, and heroes. Passing eternity warring with each other and those that thought they could best a deity, they were slowly stripped of their supremacy – brick by brick – until they slid into memory.

But gods do not die, forgive, or forget. Once again they are waking up – but in bodies strange and impermanent, bodies that will die. Their powers fizzle as they toil away in mortal flesh; memories slink away to private parts of the brain. Mount Olympus only visits in the secret places of dreams. They wear the faces of boys and girls – but below the brain, below the fumbling of earthly fingers, they are so much more. It’s been so long! They may remember, finding their own faces in others likewise divine; they may slip into the mortal coil, and stray through lifetime after lifetime, never grasping what glories they once had.

And here, we begin.

I recomend reading "Gates of Fire" by Steven Pressfield. It is a novel about the last stand at Thermopylae and the tale about those events and what goes on ine Lakedaemon are told through the eyes of Xeones; a battle squire from Astakos. It is a very good read and I heard it will be made into a film in a couple of years.

I was wondering if somebody could tell me something about Jove. I was reading a translation of The Illiad and it spoke of Jove and that he was king of the gods. I always thought Zeus was king of the Greek Gods. Is Jove another name for Zeus? Could somebody please help. Thank you very much.

Greetings everybody. I am Sir James from Northern Ireland. I love history mainly the middle ages but I have always had a keen interest in Greek and Roman history as well as Greek Mythology. Next year I am going to Queens University Belfast to study Ancient History on Greece and Rome. My favourite Greek people are the Spartans, I love their warrior ideals.

Hi, my name is Rachael. I am a senior in high school and have been fascinated with Classical Mythology since I was four and my parents read me a story about Narcissus. I am traveling to Italy and Greece in less than a month, and am trying to soak up as much knowledge as I possibly can.

I have a question pertaining to the god Veiovis in the Dictionary of
Roman Religion by Lesley Adkins and Roy A. Adkins- it says that he was
"closely connected with Iuppiter" but by the romans was considered to
be opposite than Iuppiter in the harmful sense-I was wondering if
anyone had any inforamtion regarding God Veiovis?

Did the greeks also have a god Veiovis???




Thank You-

Joe

Hi, my name is Nancy and I saw your community on lj after I searched for other users with "archeology" listed under their interests, because that is my declared major at UCSB. I thought I would join -- I love contributing stories and information on Ancient Greco-Roman times.

Subject:Minerva
Time:10:57 pm
Almost everyday here at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) I passed a green statue of Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom. I just thought I'd mention it since there are only three other entries in this journal so far. I would love to hear any comments people would like to say about Minerva.

i was just having another trawl round Lj and this community presented itself to me.

hullo, i'm naidel...

right, well, since there seems to be only two other people in this place i won't bother with a whole spiel of randomage (tempting as that is), but i will pose a question: which god or godess (from either the roman or greek pantheons) do you like best? it's a basic question, but it's gonna be asked sooner or later. oh and while we're at it, why?

so..um..yeah. (wow, that was articulate)

In public high school here in Greensboro, NC, USA, we were taught that the Roman Gods were nothing but renamed Greek gods. This is not true! Roman mythology's roots are from the Etruscans. Then as Rome started to conquer land, they would incorporate the gods of the conquered into their religion. Rome wouldn't have been able to grow so large and remain so large for so many centuries if they hadn't assimilated other cultures.

For example, Mars was originally god of spring, growth in nature, and fertility and the protector of cattle. It was after Rome conquered Greece when Mars became the god of war.

Welcome! This community is for people to talk about the ancient Greek and Roman gods and mythology. My goal is for this to be a great place to come to for information about the gods and goddesses, stories, holidays, and the difference between the Greek and Roman gods.!!
