Hades: God of the Underworld Greek mythology is the stories of Gods and Heros and Monsters. It was used in Ancient Greece to explain the unknown why it rained,and why the earth shook. It also provides the Gods backstory and their powers. One of the Gods is Hades King of the dead whose parents are Cronus and Rhea. Hades brothers are Poseidon and Zeus,Hades powers were wealth and riches (“Hades”).
The very thought of him makes Christians thank God for His righteousness. Despite being considered a god by the ancient Greeks, Zeus seems more akin to Hitler than anything else. Born of Kronos, who was the king of the gods at the time, Zeus’ first act is to overthrow his father and free his siblings from his belly. Also, when Typhon and Echidna make war on the gods, it is Zeus who overthrows them. In book 8 lines 20 through 31, Zeus claims he can lift all of the other gods and the earth and sea tied to a golden cable.
Hades is one of the kings son named Cronus. He have two more brothers named Zeus and Poseidon. Cronus the father was always concern about the universe. He became weak and started to meet the under ground. The underground was another god named Thanatos.
Zeus In the beginning, around 700 B.C, a magnificent god was created. In the Dikation Cave, Zeus was the sixth child born to the Titans Cronus and Rhea (Myths of Zeus). Cronus feared that one of his children would dethrone him. Because of this phobia, Cronus swallowed every child Rhea was giving birth to.
Greek mythology is one of the most favored subjects in high school and around the world because of the monsters, magic and mythical world created by the gods. Such as Hermes, the god of trade, wealth, luck, fertility, and travel, he was known as the messenger, Sirens, the mythical creature of the sea who lured in sailors, and Mount Olympus, the mythical home of the gods. Hermes, Sirens and Mount Olympus are important in greek mythology because they all reveal Greek culture, shows aspects of Greek life and appear in important Greek texts. For starters, the god Hermes is the beloved son of the god Zeus, and he was known as the messenger in the text of The Odyssey. Hermes was either a handsome, athletic beardless youth or an older bearded man with winged boots and a wand in his hand.
Mythology is the collection of myths that denotes commonly cultural and religious beliefs of ancient human beings. The elements of it were usually the involvement of god, goddess and heroes. In addition, it was based on a man’s desire, beliefs and ideas. It also told the natural occurrence and its main purpose was to teach people moral lessons. One of the example of Greek mythology is the divine hero of ancient Greece his name was Heracles, but people knew him as Hercules.
For the Classical art sculpture (picture attached below), I decided to focus on the Bronze statue of Zeus. Zeus is portrayed as a naked Heroic God. His left arm and foot plunge towards the direction of his aim and his right arm is bent with his right foot also a little bend back. You can tell that Zeus would definitely be holding his trident. This statue is three-dimensional and makes a good example of anatomy.
What did your god come from (there story) ? Zeus is the child of Cronus and Rhea, the youngest of all his siblings. Once his Father learned that one of his children would overthrow him, he began to swallow them. He swallowed his first five children Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon.
The Greek culture and Greek gods and goddesses has always been on my interest list. I find the study of Greek gods to be extremely intriguing and an interesting way to follow a specific practice of religion. I know a little information about Greek gods and who the main gods are, so having the opportunity to learn more about them is the extra push I needed to pick the topic of Greek gods and goddesses. I have also watched the Percy Jackson movies and read the books, which provided me with more insight on Greek gods even though Percy Jackson is a fictional read. Knowing all this information and interest in Greek gods lead me to the question, “How does Greek Gods get started and how does it influence the world today?”
