The Muse Of Mythology welcomes you to the feature called Table Of Deities. Here, you are invited to explore the pantheon of mythological gods and goddesses.

about this feature

Here The Muse Of Mythology explores the pantheon of deities that have appeared in mythologies throughout the ages.

A number of the deities cited in this feature are generously represented in the arts. They figure in such fields as drama, music, literature, and fine arts. Some have appeared time and time again, not just in one artistic work or field but in many of them. Most have appeared prominently in some of the most important and memorable creative works of mankind or have at least been assigned a supporting role.

The Muse presents the deities in this feature in the form of an automated table containing hundreds of deities, with each row dedicated to a particular deity.

What is a deity? In mythology, a deity is:

  • A god or goddess.
  • A divine mythological character.
  • An estate or rank that can be attained by an individual before or after death.
  • A person or thing revered as a god or goddess.
  • A superhuman entity.

about the Table of deities

The Table Of Deities is the place where The Muse Of Mythology presents many of the most prominent deities that appear in many of the most important extant mythologies of the world. Its primary purpose is to display and describe many of these Deities

The Table Of Deities is an automated table that is searchable, sortable, and printable. It offers you these and other features that will assist you to rapidly, easily, and conveniently search for, find, and arrange results. These features make it easier to make comparisons among the gods.

Columns in the table include:

  • Deity name.
  • Origin or source—e.g., culture, society, period, mythology, writings, movie, author, medium.
  • Description—e.g., attributes, appearance, powers, characteristics, behavior.
  • Role in the arts—connections with the muses, word origins, literary references, depictions in works of fine art or music, film, and other arts, fields of human endeavor.

Of course, the Table does not exhaust this field. Literally thousands of deities have been conceived by mankind. Creating an exhaustive table would be too daunting a task. The connections with the muses and the arts are not meant to do more than get you started.
