♥ Book Title : Classical Myths and Legends in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
☯ Full Synopsis : "While numerous classical dictionaries identify the figures and tales of Greek and Roman mythology, this reference book explains the allegorical significance attached to the myths by Medieval and Renaissance authors. Included are several hundred alphabetically arranged entries for the gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and places of classical myth and legend. Each entry includes a brief account of the myth, with reference to the Greek and Latin sources. The entry then discusses how Medieval and Renaissance commentators interpreted the myth, and how poets, dramatists, and artists employed the allegory in their art. Each entry includes a bibliography and the volume concludes with appendices and an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources."Article| H. David Brumble| Statement ..."

This encyclopedia contains more than 2,200 monsters of myth and folklore, who both made life difficult for humans and fought by their side.

♥ Book Title : A Dictionary of Non-Classical Mythology
☯ Full Synopsis : "Old Teutonic ideas concerning the dead were not very defined. Souls were conceived as in the air, sweeping past on the winds; they formed the phantom host accompanying the wild huntsmen of popular tradition. Or they might be dwelling in the hills, perhaps feasting there with Odhin, before Valhalla was known... -from then entry for Hel, the early Scandinavian abode of the dead From "Aah" (an Egyptian moon god) to "Ziudsuddu" (the Sumerian hero of the Creation), this is a deliciously browsable dictionary of the folklore of Europe, the ancient Americas, and the Near and Far East. Originally published in 1912 and weaving connections between the deities and legendary heroes of diverse traditions-are Krishna and Arthur spiritual brothers?-this will delight readers of mythology and comparative religion. Scottish occultist LEWIS SPENCE (1874-1955) was a fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, and vice president of the Scottish Anthropological and Folklore Society. A renowned scholar of the Atlantis myth, he authored numerous books of mythology, folklore, and the occult, including The History of Atlantis (1926), The Occult Causes of the Present War (1940), and The Magic Arts in Celtic Britain (1945). MARIAN EDWARDES also wrote A Pocket Lexicon & Concordance to the Temple Shakespeare and translated (with Edgar Taylor) Fairy Tales, by the Brothers Grimm."Article| Lewis Spence| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend
☯ Full Synopsis : "The ancient Celts were the greatest and most powerful of the early European peoples residing north of the Alps. Warlike, exuberant, and superstitious, they saw divinities in every facet of life and nature, venerating deities of the sun, thunder, water, war, healing, hunting, fertility, and death. They practiced human and animal sacrifice, and a powerful priesthood--the Druids--presided over much of their religious life. The Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend covers every aspect of Celtic myth, religion, and folklore in Britain and Europe between 500 BC and AD 400. In parallel with the fruits of archaeological research, the testimony of Classical writers and the earliest recorded versions of the pagan oral traditions of Wales and Ireland provide us with a complete overview of Celtic lore. This guide presents that knowledge in over 400 copiously illustrated articles, together with a comprehensive historical introduction."Article| Miranda Jane Aldhouse-Green| Statement ..."
