Encyclopedia Mythica

This site is the mother lode for information on mythology, folklore, and religion.  No “in your face” graphics, no annoying banners or pop-ups.  Any advertising is subtle and away to the side from the information at hand. For today’s Internet that’s a rarity. And that’s why this is a great place for students (and teachers) to do research.

The mythology section is divided into six geographical regions: Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, Middle East, and Oceania. Each region is then broken down into very clearly
defined subdivisions.  For example, the Americas section is divided into Aztec, Haitian, Inca, Mayan and Native American mythology.  Each section then allows you to go to
an introduction page or to articles.

The Folklore section contains general folklore, Arthurian legends, Greek heroic legend, and folk tales from many countries. You can spend many enjoyable moments reading about these classic legends.  I really enjoyed the legend of King Arthur.

In addition, there is also a special feature in other interest areas: A Bestiary, legendary heroes, an image gallery, and genealogical tables of various pantheons and prominent houses. This last feature is truly helpful. Under Greek mythology the principal gods of Greek mythology have links that lead you to: The consorts and offspring of Zeus, The descendants of Prometheus, The ancestors of Achilles ,The ancestors of Perseus and Heracles (Hercules), The House of Troy and The family of Helen of Troy.  Clicking on any of these links gives an easy to read table that makes researching a breeze.

With so much unreliable and commercially polluted information on the Internet, Encyclopedia Mythica is truly unique.  Information here is well written and well researched from highly respectable academic writers and sources. Available as well are links to other articles and support sources of information.  Presented in clear and readable writing, students will find this a great first place to do research on mythology, folklore, and religion.
