The Survival of the Pagan Gods : The Mythological Tradition and Its Place in Renaissance Humanism and Art Paperback

Part of the Bollingen Series (General) series

Description

The gods of Olympus died with the advent of Christianity--or so we have been taught to believe.

But how are we to account for their tremendous popularity during the Renaissance?

This illustrated book, now reprinted in a new, larger paperback format, offers the general reader first a discussion of mythology in late antiquity and the Middle Ages, and then a multifaceted look at the far-reaching role played by mythology in Renaissance intellectual and emotional life.
