GNHU 285 - 04 Mythology Week 2 Notes “The Quest for the Gods” What relevance and meaning do the gods have on society today? The vision: the classical ‘greek’ idea of things “Golden Age” of Greece: 500 B.C. Peak age of philosophical thinkers such as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau, etc. There are 14 gods. 7 gods, and 7 goddesses in greek mythology. “Religion is very similar to greek mythology, but instead of thinking how God made humans in his image, humans made the gods in their image” The Parthenon - “one of the most perfect poems set in stone” - dedicated to Athena. She is the protector of the city - city is named after her. “Athens” - Athena - she is a weaver, peacemaker, leader, and protector using her compassion, strength and intelligence. Poseidon and Athena constantly quarreled for the city state in Rome, so King Cecrops decided to hold a contest so they may prove themselves to see who is more worthy of the land. When Zeus was to go first, he plucked his trident into the ground, as a spring of water gushed out. When it was time for Athena to go, she planted a seed in the ground which eventually became an olive tree. Because Athena’s act proved more beneficial for the city as olives were resourceful in producing oil to power lamps and cooking food with. Therefore, she had won the contest and was given the land that is now called Athens. Ancient Theatre Ancient Greeks were the first to formalize theatre as an art. They used to hold plays in amphitheaters (outdoor theaters) in which hundreds attended. Actors, usually portrayed as gods and goddesses wore masks that showed their emotions so that people who sat far from the stage would interpret what the scene was depicting since they could not hear them speak. They did not have microphones or speakers back then so they had to speak very loudly.
