9781584155560: Athena (Profiles in Greek & Roman Mythology)

The ancient Greeks worshiped a complex group of deities, weaving their characters into timeless tales of love, heroism, and intrigue. Plays, poems, paintings, and sculptures commemorating these tales have survived for centuries. Even as world religions and scientific knowledge have evolved, bringing with them new beliefs and understanding of the world, the ancient Greek tales continue to provide a basic foundation for Western thought and sharp insight to the human psyche. Athena appeared in many Greek myths, having major roles in Homer s Iliad and Odyssey and in ancient plays dealing with justice and democracy. Born from Zeus head, she was a contradictory figure in many ways. She was the goddess of war and a protector of civilization. She was capable of being a good friend to humans, yet she could also be fiercely vindictive and hand out punishment to men and women alike without a second thought. Temples were raised to her throughout Greece, including the famous Parthenon. The city of Athens, a military power and cultural center, embodied the goddess for whom it was named.
