Learn Roman and Greek Mythology with this online course

Online course on Roman and Greek Mythology


Classical mythology is the greatest collaborative tale ever told, spanning a millennium and two cultures with characters and themes so powerful that they remain cultural archetypes today. This course demonstrates both how individual myths fit into the story, and how mythology itself fitted into Greek and Roman religion and culture.

Aims of the course:

  • To introduce the ancient Greek and Roman myths and show how they developed and absorbed elements of different Mediterranean cultures.
  • To show that individual myths are contained within a meta-narrative which has a beginning, middle and end.
  • To analyse the nature of the myths, common themes and what the myths tell us about the societies which created them.
  • To learn something of the ancient approach to religion and religious thought.

Course content overview:

The course will largely concentrate on translations of the original ancient texts and will attempt to understand the nature of myth in a non-technical and jargon free manner.
