LLCU/CMLT 316: Classical Mythology: God, Heroes, and Monsters
How close are original Greek and Roman myths to the versions you’ve heard? You would probably be surprised by the differences. The Classical tales of gods, heroes, and monsters form a tapestry of the raw and brutal elements of our universe. Woven into this are the threads of human adversity and, as is so often the case, human fragility in the face of legendary beasts, cruel kings, and the powerful Olympian gods. Join us as we explore both popular and lesser-known myths from the Greek and Roman worlds. Along the way, we’ll uncover the fascinating origins, meanings, and histories of these stories that continue to inspire, shock, and amaze us today.
