There is a fundamental difference between the Weltanschauung of the mythology of the Greeks and Romans, and that of the Norsemen. Explain that difference and then demonstrate it through the stories of the Greeks and Romans, as opposed to the stories of the Norsemen. Identify who the writers of these stories were, and in what works we find them. When were they writing and what was influencing the way they wrote? (100 pts.)
Using the video “Greek Mythology: Gods and Goddesses Documentary” as a valuable resource, discuss why the Greek and Roman myths have had – and continue to have – great influence in culture, ethics, philosophy, and the arts.
