Second declension , Greek type. Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary. WOTD — 3 July Fuller , OCLC At the same time, mythoses have been distinguished into different kinds.
The mythoses of history, that is to say, the recital of real events colored only by the ancient opinions, which confounded the divine with the human, the natural with the supernatural,—also the philosophic mythoses , those in which a simple thought, a speculation contemporaneous, or a novel idea are enveloped.
But the most highly gifted of all peoples in poetic insight were the Greeks. They possessed supreme ability in the interpretation of nature as expression of spirit.
Nevertheless, the only general mythographical handbook to survive from Greek antiquity was the Library of Pseudo-Apollodorus.
This work attempts to reconcile the contradictory tales of the poets and provides a grand summary of traditional Greek mythology and heroic legends.
His writings may have formed the basis for the collection; however the "Library" discusses events that occurred long after his death, hence the name Pseudo-Apollodorus.
Among the earliest literary sources are Homer 's two epic poems, the Iliad and the Odyssey. Other poets completed the "epic cycle", but these later and lesser poems now are lost almost entirely.
Despite their traditional name, the "Homeric Hymns" have no direct connection with Homer. They are choral hymns from the earlier part of the so-called Lyric age.
Hesiod's Works and Days , a didactic poem about farming life, also includes the myths of Prometheus , Pandora , and the Five Ages. The poet gives advice on the best way to succeed in a dangerous world, rendered yet more dangerous by its gods.
Lyrical poets often took their subjects from myth, but their treatment became gradually less narrative and more allusive. Greek lyric poets, including Pindar , Bacchylides and Simonides , and bucolic poets such as Theocritus and Bion , relate individual mythological incidents.
The tragic playwrights Aeschylus , Sophocles , and Euripides took most of their plots from myths of the age of heroes and the Trojan War.
Many of the great tragic stories e. Agamemnon and his children, Oedipus , Jason , Medea , etc. Historians Herodotus and Diodorus Siculus , and geographers Pausanias and Strabo , who traveled throughout the Greek world and noted the stories they heard, supplied numerous local myths and legends, often giving little-known alternative versions.
The poetry of the Hellenistic and Roman ages was primarily composed as a literary rather than cultic exercise. Nevertheless, it contains many important details that would otherwise be lost.
This category includes the works of:. Prose writers from the same periods who make reference to myths include Apuleius , Petronius , Lollianus , and Heliodorus.
Two other important non-poetical sources are the Fabulae and Astronomica of the Roman writer styled as Pseudo- Hyginus , the Imagines of Philostratus the Elder and Philostratus the Younger , and the Descriptions of Callistratus.
Finally, a number of Byzantine Greek writers provide important details of myth, much derived from earlier now lost Greek works. They often treat mythology from a Christian moralizing perspective.
The discovery of the Mycenaean civilization by the German amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann in the nineteenth century, and the discovery of the Minoan civilization in Crete by the British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans in the twentieth century, helped to explain many existing questions about Homer's epics and provided archaeological evidence for many of the mythological details about gods and heroes.
Unfortunately, the evidence about myths and rituals at Mycenaean and Minoan sites is entirely monumental, as the Linear B script an ancient form of Greek found in both Crete and mainland Greece was used mainly to record inventories, although certain names of gods and heroes have been tentatively identified.
Firstly, many Greek myths are attested on vases earlier than in literary sources: In some cases, the first known representation of a myth in geometric art predates its first known representation in late archaic poetry, by several centuries.
Greek mythology has changed over time to accommodate the evolution of their culture, of which mythology, both overtly and in its unspoken assumptions, is an index of the changes.
In Greek mythology's surviving literary forms, as found mostly at the end of the progressive changes, it is inherently political, as Gilbert Cuthbertson has argued.
The earlier inhabitants of the Balkan Peninsula were an agricultural people who, using Animism , assigned a spirit to every aspect of nature.
Eventually, these vague spirits assumed human forms and entered the local mythology as gods. Other older gods of the agricultural world fused with those of the more powerful invaders or else faded into insignificance.
The achievement of epic poetry was to create story-cycles and, as a result, to develop a new sense of mythological chronology.
Thus Greek mythology unfolds as a phase in the development of the world and of humans. The resulting mythological "history of the world" may be divided into three or four broader periods:.
While the age of gods often has been of more interest to contemporary students of myth, the Greek authors of the archaic and classical eras had a clear preference for the age of heroes, establishing a chronology and record of human accomplishments after the questions of how the world came into being were explained.
For example, the heroic Iliad and Odyssey dwarfed the divine-focused Theogony and Homeric Hymns in both size and popularity. Under the influence of Homer the "hero cult" leads to a restructuring in spiritual life, expressed in the separation of the realm of the gods from the realm of the dead heroes , of the Chthonic from the Olympian.
Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Iron. These races or ages are separate creations of the gods, the Golden Age belonging to the reign of Cronos, the subsequent races to the creation of Zeus.
The presence of evil was explained by the myth of Pandora , when all of the best of human capabilities, save hope, had been spilled out of her overturned jar.
He begins with Chaos , a yawning nothingness. Out of the void emerged Gaia the Earth and some other primary divine beings: Eros Love , the Abyss the Tartarus , and the Erebus.
From that union were born first the Titans —six males: After Cronus was born, Gaia and Uranus decreed no more Titans were to be born.
They were followed by the one-eyed Cyclopes and the Hecatonchires or Hundred-Handed Ones, who were both thrown into Tartarus by Uranus.
This made Gaia furious. Cronus "the wily, youngest and most terrible of Gaia's children"  , was convinced by Gaia to castrate his father.
He did this, and became the ruler of the Titans with his sister-wife Rhea as his consort, and the other Titans became his court. A motif of father-against-son conflict was repeated when Cronus was confronted by his son, Zeus.
Because Cronus had betrayed his father, he feared that his offspring would do the same, and so each time Rhea gave birth, he snatched up the child and ate it.
Rhea hated this and tricked him by hiding Zeus and wrapping a stone in a baby's blanket, which Cronus ate. When Zeus was full grown, he fed Cronus a drugged drink which caused him to vomit, throwing up Rhea's other children and the stone, which had been sitting in Cronus's stomach all along.
Zeus then challenged Cronus to war for the kingship of the gods. At last, with the help of the Cyclopes whom Zeus freed from Tartarus , Zeus and his siblings were victorious, while Cronus and the Titans were hurled down to imprisonment in Tartarus.
Zeus was plagued by the same concern, and after a prophecy that the offspring of his first wife, Metis , would give birth to a god "greater than he", Zeus swallowed her.
The earliest Greek thought about poetry considered the theogonies to be the prototypical poetic genre—the prototypical mythos —and imputed almost magical powers to it.
Orpheus , the archetypal poet, also was the archetypal singer of theogonies, which he uses to calm seas and storms in Apollonius' Argonautica , and to move the stony hearts of the underworld gods in his descent to Hades.
When Hermes invents the lyre in the Homeric Hymn to Hermes , the first thing he does is sing about the birth of the gods.
Theogony also was the subject of many lost poems, including those attributed to Orpheus, Musaeus , Epimenides , Abaris , and other legendary seers, which were used in private ritual purifications and mystery-rites.
There are indications that Plato was familiar with some version of the Orphic theogony. After they ceased to become religious beliefs, few would have known the rites and rituals.
Allusions often existed, however, to aspects that were quite public. Images existed on pottery and religious artwork that were interpreted and more likely, misinterpreted in many diverse myths and tales.
A few fragments of these works survive in quotations by Neoplatonist philosophers and recently unearthed papyrus scraps. The first philosophical cosmologists reacted against, or sometimes built upon, popular mythical conceptions that had existed in the Greek world for some time.
Some of these popular conceptions can be gleaned from the poetry of Homer and Hesiod. In Homer, the Earth was viewed as a flat disk afloat on the river of Oceanus and overlooked by a hemispherical sky with sun, moon, and stars.
The Sun Helios traversed the heavens as a charioteer and sailed around the Earth in a golden bowl at night.
Sun, earth, heaven, rivers, and winds could be addressed in prayers and called to witness oaths. Natural fissures were popularly regarded as entrances to the subterranean house of Hades and his predecessors, home of the dead.
According to Classical-era mythology, after the overthrow of the Titans, the new pantheon of gods and goddesses was confirmed.
The limitation of their number to twelve seems to have been a comparatively modern idea. In addition, there were the dark powers of the underworld, such as the Erinyes or Furies , said to pursue those guilty of crimes against blood-relatives.
The gods of Greek mythology are described as having essentially corporeal but ideal bodies. According to Walter Burkert , the defining characteristic of Greek anthropomorphism is that "the Greek gods are persons, not abstractions, ideas or concepts".
The Greeks considered immortality as the distinctive characteristic of their gods; this immortality, as well as unfading youth, was insured by the constant use of nectar and ambrosia , by which the divine blood was renewed in their veins.
Each god descends from his or her own genealogy, pursues differing interests, has a certain area of expertise, and is governed by a unique personality; however, these descriptions arise from a multiplicity of archaic local variants, which do not always agree with one another.
When these gods are called upon in poetry, prayer or cult, they are referred to by a combination of their name and epithets , that identify them by these distinctions from other manifestations of themselves e.
Alternatively the epithet may identify a particular and localized aspect of the god, sometimes thought to be already ancient during the classical epoch of Greece.
Most gods were associated with specific aspects of life. For example, Aphrodite was the goddess of love and beauty, Ares was the god of war, Hades the ruler of the underworld, and Athena the goddess of wisdom and courage.
The most impressive temples tended to be dedicated to a limited number of gods, who were the focus of large pan-Hellenic cults. It was, however, common for individual regions and villages to devote their own cults to minor gods.
Many cities also honored the more well-known gods with unusual local rites and associated strange myths with them that were unknown elsewhere.
During the heroic age, the cult of heroes or demi-gods supplemented that of the gods. Bridging the age when gods lived alone and the age when divine interference in human affairs was limited was a transitional age in which gods and mortals moved together.
These were the early days of the world when the groups mingled more freely than they did later. Most of these tales were later told by Ovid's Metamorphoses and they are often divided into two thematic groups: Tales of love often involve incest, or the seduction or rape of a mortal woman by a male god, resulting in heroic offspring.
The stories generally suggest that relationships between gods and mortals are something to avoid; even consenting relationships rarely have happy endings.
The second type tales of punishment involves the appropriation or invention of some important cultural artifact, as when Prometheus steals fire from the gods, when Tantalus steals nectar and ambrosia from Zeus' table and gives it to his own subjects—revealing to them the secrets of the gods, when Prometheus or Lycaon invents sacrifice, when Demeter teaches agriculture and the Mysteries to Triptolemus , or when Marsyas invents the aulos and enters into a musical contest with Apollo.
Ian Morris considers Prometheus' adventures as "a place between the history of the gods and that of man". In another story, based on an old folktale-motif,  and echoing a similar theme, Demeter was searching for her daughter, Persephone , having taken the form of an old woman called Doso, and received a hospitable welcome from Celeus , the King of Eleusis in Attica.
As a gift to Celeus, because of his hospitality, Demeter planned to make his son Demophon a god, but she was unable to complete the ritual because his mother Metanira walked in and saw her son in the fire and screamed in fright, which angered Demeter, who lamented that foolish mortals do not understand the concept and ritual.
The age in which the heroes lived is known as the heroic age. According to Ken Dowden , "There is even a saga effect: We can follow the fates of some families in successive generations".
After the rise of the hero cult, gods and heroes constitute the sacral sphere and are invoked together in oaths and prayers which are addressed to them.
Great gods are no longer born, but new heroes can always be raised up from the army of the dead. The monumental events of Heracles are regarded as the dawn of the age of heroes.
To the Heroic Age are also ascribed three great events: Some scholars believe  that behind Heracles' complicated mythology there was probably a real man, perhaps a chieftain-vassal of the kingdom of Argos.
Some scholars suggest the story of Heracles is an allegory for the sun's yearly passage through the twelve constellations of the zodiac.
Traditionally, Heracles was the son of Zeus and Alcmene , granddaughter of Perseus. According to Burkert, "He is portrayed as a sacrificer, mentioned as a founder of altars, and imagined as a voracious eater himself; it is in this role that he appears in comedy,.
While his tragic end provided much material for tragedy— Heracles is regarded by Thalia Papadopoulou as "a play of great significance in examination of other Euripidean dramas".
Vase paintings demonstrate the unparalleled popularity of Heracles, his fight with the lion being depicted many hundreds of times.
Heracles also entered Etruscan and Roman mythology and cult, and the exclamation "mehercule" became as familiar to the Romans as "Herakleis" was to the Greeks.
Heracles attained the highest social prestige through his appointment as official ancestor of the Dorian kings. This probably served as a legitimation for the Dorian migrations into the Peloponnese.
Hyllus , the eponymous hero of one Dorian phyle , became the son of Heracles and one of the Heracleidae or Heraclids the numerous descendants of Heracles, especially the descendants of Hyllus —other Heracleidae included Macaria , Lamos, Manto , Bianor , Tlepolemus , and Telephus.
These Heraclids conquered the Peloponnesian kingdoms of Mycenae , Sparta and Argos , claiming, according to legend, a right to rule them through their ancestor.
Their rise to dominance is frequently called the " Dorian invasion ". The Lydian and later the Macedonian kings, as rulers of the same rank, also became Heracleidae.
Other members of this earliest generation of heroes such as Perseus, Deucalion , Theseus and Bellerophon , have many traits in common with Heracles.
The principal difference between Lovecraft and Derleth being Derleth's use of hope and development of the idea that the Cthulhu mythos essentially represented a struggle between good and evil.
As Lovecraft conceived the deities or forces of his mythos, there were, initially, the Elder Gods. These Elder Gods were benign deities, representing the forces of good, and existed peacefully.
Price believes that the basis for Derleth's system is found in Lovecraft: In fact, this very story, along with some hints from "The Shadow over Innsmouth", provides the key to the origin of the 'Derleth Mythos'.
For in At the Mountains of Madness is shown the history of a conflict between interstellar races, first among them the Elder Ones and the Cthulhu-spawn.
Derleth himself believed that Lovecraft wished for other authors to actively write about the Mythos as opposed to it being a discrete plot device within Lovecraft's own stories.
Derleth also attempted to connect the deities of the Mythos to the four elements "air", "earth", "fire", and "water" , creating new beings representative of certain elements in order to legitimize his system of classification.
Derleth created "Cthugha" as a sort of fire elemental when a fan, Francis Towner Laney, complained that he had neglected to include the element in his schema.
Laney, the editor of The Acolyte , had categorized the Mythos in an essay that first appeared in the Winter issue of the magazine.
Impressed by the glossary, Derleth asked Laney to rewrite it for publication in the Arkham House collection Beyond the Wall of Sleep In applying the elemental theory to beings that function on a cosmic scale e.

Of course, the other side also sees the conflict through a mythos —and in theirs they are the victim. Unless you transform the fundamental way you relate to each other—your mythos —your conflict will remain.
To get most benefit from the four mythoi , one must avoid making two errors. First, a work embodying the comic mythos may be called comic but should not be confused with comedy since the latter term has too many meanings that are exclusively dramatic.
The same stricture applies to tragedy and the tragic mythos. The second error is to assume that a work embodying the ironic mythos is an anti-romance.
In addition to mythoi drawn from myths and fairy tales, romances also employ mythoi derived from chivalric romances.

This made Western scholars more willing to analyse narratives in the Abrahamic religions as myths; theologians such as Rudolf Bultmann argued that a modern Christianity needed to demythologize ;  and other religious scholars embraced the idea that the mythical status of Abrahamic narratives was a legitimate feature of their importance.
