The Meaning of Ancient Greek Gods, for the Ancients and for Us

Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, and countless poets and artists have found inspiration in the ancient Greek gods for their own ideas. This class will examine a select few of these ancient gods, female and male, for the meaning they held for the ancient Greeks, who worshipped these deities in important rituals. We will then explore why they still resonate for us today, creatively, mythically, psychologically or other ways. The class will highlight these deities: Aphrodite, Apollo, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Persephone, Dionysos, Hermes.
