Rediscover the significant figures and engrossing tales of world mythology in an upcoming remote course on “Comparative Mythology” offered by the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program.
Mythology is our earliest form of literary expression and the foundation of all history and morality. This course will explore the mythologies of the world, contrasting their differences and also their commonalities. The text by Willis and Walker divides the mythologies of the world into regions and zones, providing background for discussion. The course will examine how the beliefs and stories have come down to us through the ages.
Participants should get a copy of World Mythology: The Illustrated Guide to begin enjoying the myths and meaning in this book featuring beautiful photographs, illustrations, maps, and charts.
This course is offered with the generous support of the Association for Continuing Education (ACE).
