Overview

MYTHOLOGY is the science which treats of the early traditions, or myths, relating to the religion of the ancients, and includes, besides a full account of the origin of their gods, their theory concerning the beginning of all things.
Myths of creation.
Among all the nations scattered over the face of the earth, the Hebrews alone were instructed by God, who gave them not only a full account of the creation of the world and of all living creatures, but also a code of laws to regulate their conduct. All the questions they fain would ask were fully answered, and no room remained for conjecture.
It was not so, however, with the other nations. The Greeks and Romans, for instance, lacking the definite knowledge which we obtain from the Scriptures, and still anxious to know everything, were forced to construct, in part, their own theory. As they looked about them for some clue to serve as guide, they could not help but observe and admire the wonders of nature. The succession of day and night, summer and winter, rain and sunshine; the fact that the tallest trees sprang from tiny seeds, the greatest rivers from diminutive streams, and the most beautiful flowers and delicious fruits from small green buds,-all seemed to tell them of a superior Being, who had fashioned them to serve a definite purpose.

    The Best Greek and Roman Mythology book I have ever read!

    My Father gave me a very early edition of this book when I was 9 years of age. I am 35 now and all the pages are falling out because I have read it so much. The famous artworks that accompany this book are spectacular and have inspired me to by most of the prints which are now lining the walls of my home. The stories are detailed and exciting with out being long and drawn out. The index is also detailed making it very easy to find the god you are looking for...I even referred to it to name my child. What an inspirational book to pass on to your children and their children...enjoy it!

    Love this book!

    My father-in-law let me borrow this book and I eventually inherited it. Loved the stores and bought on my nook so I can share it with my children who have developed a love for greek & roman mythology.
