Mythology Understanding Myth & Mythology Open

The true significance of myth and mythology is commonly overlooked. Many people see myths as little more than childhood amusements not worthy of serious study, like a fairy tale or a nursery rhyme; they see mythology—the study and science of myth—as an obvious and simplistic undertaking.

Here, The Muse Of Mythology will attempt to correct these misappraisals, and a lot more.

Mythology What's A Nymph? Open

In ancient Greece, a nymph was any of a large class of inferior female divinities, usually associated with growing things such as plants or with water. A nymph was not an immortal, but lived a long time and was kindly disposed toward man.

Mythology What's A Muse? Open

In ancient Greece, people believed that the arts were inspired by muses—goddesses—supernatural women who haunted, lured, persuaded, or drove men to create great works of art. These muses were personifications of an inspiration that seemed magical and unearthly, guiding spirits through whose power one could create something new and wonderful.

Electricka, Muse of the WorldWide Web, and her cohort muses invite you to explore the ancient Greek muses and their 21st century counterparts. See what muses, museums, and music have in common.

Mythology About Muses & Museums Open

Did you know that the notion of a museum was invented in Ancient Greece, where it was defined as a building or place where works of art, scientific specimens, or other objects of permanent value are kept and displayed? The Greek word for museum, Mouseion, means shrine of the Muses.

Thus, a museum is a place sacred to the Muses, a building devoted to learning and the arts. In ancient Greece, any place devoted to learning and the arts was called a museum—a muse place! When you visit a museum, you enter a holy place, one sacred to the gods.

Electricka and her cohort muses invite you to explore the connection between the muses and museums.

Mythology The Essential Nature Of Myth Open

Most of us who love music but are untrained are content with just listening. Can The Muse Of Music make theory and practice comprehensible for the rest of us?
