In this course we will explore the mythologies of selected peoples in the Ancient Near East, Africa, Asia, and Native North and South America and can examine how the gods function in the life and belief of each society. The, study of mythological texts will be accompanied, as much as possible, by illustrative slides that will show the images of these deities in art and ritual.
