To carry out our purpose of providing our readers with access to free books on topics of great interest and cultural relevance, we have built a selection of texts in PDF format about Greek Mythology.
What we know as Greek Mythology is defined as the group of myths and legends created and belonging to the inhabitants of Ancient Greece. These stories were part of the religion they professed and practiced, and dealt with the lives of their gods and heroes. They also talked about the origin of the world, its cults and rituals.
Legends about Greek Mythology were preserved in Homeric hymns, in epic poetry, in lyric poems and in various works by authors of the 5th century BC. There are also stories in the texts of poets and researchers of the period known as Hellenistic, and in texts by authors such as Plutarch and Pausanias of the Roman Empire.
Archaeological investigations have thrown up great and important details about Greek mythology, revealing decorations with representations of their gods and heroes in diverse objects.
Without a doubt the myths and legends of Ancient Greece have had a great influence on the culture, literature and art of the Western world, becoming the inspiration of many works.
