Every human society has its mythology, a body of sacred stories about the gods and matters of cosmic significance, from the creation to what occurs after death. People have been telling these stories for thousands of years, to help them make sense of their universe, their reality, and their lives.
The variety of these mythological stories is fascinating and the narratives endlessly entertaining, inspiring writers and artists across the centuries. These stories also provide a deep and unique insight into the ideas, religions, values and cultures of the people who first told them.
