Summary

Tales of love and war, courage and pain, justice and tyranny, heroes and villains and ultimately the relationship of humanity to the divine powers are a common element of all cultures. For millennia, these tales have served to transmit values, communicate wisdom, and reveal the nature of right and wrong - in short, to demonstrate a particular society's ethics and way of life via storytelling. From the mighty Thor, the Norse god of thunder; to Vishni, the Indian god of the sun; to Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, the pages of Mythology: Tales of Ancient Civilizations capture the wondrous power of these stories to define, unify, and transcend the cultures they come from. Filled with beautiful photographs, line drawings, and pictorial reproductions of artifacts, this collection of myths from around the world reveals the commonality of the diverse cultures that make up our contemporary society and roots that we all share.
