The Survival of the Pagan Gods : The Mythological Tradition and Its Place in Renaissance Humanism and Art Paperback
by Jean Seznec
Part of the Bollingen Series (General) series
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.
