Greek mythology

mythology is the body of myths originally told by the Greeks, as well as a genre of Ancient folklore.

These stories are about the creation and nature of the world, the lives and activities of deities, heroes, and mythological creatures, and the origins and significance of the ancient Greeks’ own cult and ritual practices.

Modern scholars study myths to shed light on ancient ’s religious and political institutions, as well as to better understand the nature of myth-making itself.
