Hesiod’s Theogony

  • I figure that if there are to be detailed discussions on the gods that Hesiod’s famous work should be consulted and available.


    The Greek version of a “Cosmogony” and “Theogony” the poet Hesiod borrowed heavily from the legendary stories of Mesopotamia to create this poem.

  • Some similarities to other myths to discuss:


    -The castration of Uranus and Hittite Myth


    -Deucalion and the Deluge (Noah, Utnapishtim, Ziusudra)


    -Typhoeus and Zeus battle versus Lotan and Baal, Leviathan and El.


    -Prometheus and Oannes
