Heracles, better known as Hercules, is an ancient hero in Greek mythology. He is the son of Zeus and Alcmene, and the descendant of Perseus. He was born a mortal and was later a god after his death. Despite not being a god at first, Hercules was the strongest of all living mortals. He was not born a god because his mother was a mortal princess.
Drug, as well, has long been the subject of mythology. The Greeks and Romans made myths about the first doctor, Asklepios (or Aesculapius), a child of Apollo.

The gods play a big part within The Odyssey to a point where they interact with the characters were they can aide or hinder them. Athena plays an important role within the first couple of books in The Odyssey. Athena goes to Ithica while disguised as one of Telemachus’ father’s old friends named Mentes. As Mentes, she tells Telemachus to get rid of the people from his father’s land and to ask of his father’s whereabouts in Sparta. Why does Athena approach Telemachus disguised?
Greeks believed that apollo made shadows. Greeks believed when they die they will meet the god of the underworld. Many greeks also believed that Zeus was god of all. This is what we call mythology. Today I will tell about a god named hephaestus.
Members must adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience as well as to give "wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor" (Muggeridge, 1971, pp. 105, 113). Atheists only consider the bad fruits of religion while ignoring all the evidence that points out to the contrary. According to Fagan, Religion, for example, strengthens the family bond between the members with generally a happy marriage. Religious practice generally discourages suicide, drug abuse crimes, divorce, and abortion; social problems that we never want in our society.
The use of statues to represent Gods in Churches was quite controversial because statues reminded them of the graven images so how can the idea of one Almighty and Invisible God be incorporated into Statues. But the use of art of religious propagation resumed when Pope Gregory advocated the idea that illiterates can be made to understand religious beliefs via art. But for this to happen the art must be simple and expressive. The walls of the Churches were decorated with murals. The most important characteristics of Christian art are: They are simplistic and expressive in nature, a strict frontal view is incorporated in all the images, there is no illusion of depth in the images and realism of Roman art is completely wiped out to give way to simplistic art for the propagation of Christian Ideals.
Firas N. Bashir Hellenistic Time Period Hellenistic art all started with the death of Alexander the Great following the Greek world and the Persian Empire’s incorporation into it. Alexander is considered one of the greatest military geniuses of all time, he is also the conqueror of the Persian Empire and the king of Macedonia. The Hellenistic art had spread all around the cultivated world. The Greek culture was utterly dominant. But the instant death of Alexander the Great quickly decreased the Greek’s and their imperial power, following the separation of his massive empire between the three generals: Antigonus I, was given Greece and Macedonia; Seleucus I had took control of Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and Persia; and last but not least, Ptolemy I was given the opportunity to rule Egypt.
Greek and Roman Timeline This timeline shows how the ancient Greek Empire fell to the Roman Empire. The Greeks fight the Persians in the Greek/Persian Wars and win in 490 BC. The temple of Athena is completed in Athens in 432 BC. The Peloponnesian Wars begin in 431 BC., and in 404 BC. the Peloponnesian Wars ended.
Some of the major differences can be seen in the ideas of origin and the meaning of life. In today’s society, as a whole, most do not believe that the world was created because various gods were fighting or because a monster of chaos was destroyed. In a modern, Christian worldview, we believe God created us and the earth and that He genuinely cares for us. For us, the meaning of life is similar in the idea that happiness is a goal; however, we find meaning in what we do and how we impact others. The Mesopotamians on the other hand never gave much evidence to support the idea that they were invested in the people around them and making their lives better along with their own.
C.S. Lewis once said, "Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, is of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important." Too often, I think that we as Christians treat Christianity as the third case Lewis described: "moderately important." We take our blessings for granted, only reach out to God in times of need or when convenient, and view faith and our relationship with God as a sort of piece of us (our "Sunday" selves, if you will) rather than the most important, all-encompassing, and defining feature of our lives.
