Ancient Gods and Heroes - Legends and Myths in Athenian Mythology / LIVE STREAMING

Ancient Athens is famous for its contribution to the fields of politics, architecture, art, theater and literature.

However, a less known but equally significant feature of the city’s culture was its rich mythological tradition.

A multitude of stories and tales described the heroic past of the city, the origins of its religious and political institutions and, most importantly, the character and mentality of the Athenians themselves.

In this online tour, we will describe those myths as they were perceived by ancient Athenians. We will stand on the spot were Athena and Poseidon competed for the honor of being the patrons of the city. We will learn why one of the hills of Athens stands in its present spot. We will follow the hero Theseus in his quests all over Greece. We will learn about the adventures of the princesses of Athens. We will attend the first formal trial among the gods. And, finally, we will uncover the true origins of the Myth of Atlantis.
