      Free kindle book and epub digitized and proofread by Project Gutenberg.   Daily Life of the Ancient Greeks does just what it says on the cover: it provides an overview of the customs, religion, politics, aesthetics, and sensibilities of the ancient Greeks (with focus on the Classical period). The author, Robert Garland, draws heavily upon The Illiad and The Odyssey, the works of Hesiod, and of course archeological evidence to establish this portrait of Greek life /5.

    The Gods of the Greeks by Karl Kerényi translation: from German by Norman Cameron published: format: page paperback ( reprint of edition) acquired: March read: Nov rating: 4 wikipedia tells me Kerényi was a classical philologist and that he was a Hungarian who spent a year in Switzerland and then never left/5. An unintended consequence (since the Greeks were monogamous) was that Zeus in particular became markedly polygamous. (Zeus already had a consort when he arrived in the Greek world and took Hera, herself a major goddess in Argos, as another.)Hesiod used—or sometimes invented—the family links among the deities, traced out over several generations, to explain the origin and present condition.

    This book is the second in a series that attempts to prove that early Christianity did not borrow beliefs and practices from pagan religions and philosophies of the time. This second edition investigates the relationship of early Christianity to the pagan mystery religions. This book includes an annotaed bibliography as well as indexes of persons and subjects.3/5(1).   Overall, the crucial thing we must always remember is that the legacy of the ancient Greeks is a constantly moveable feast, caught between icon and enigma, and one that we – alongside every generation between us and them – have been, are still, and will always be, absolutely implicit in creating as much as the ancient Greeks themselves.
