Mythology, definition and study. A-Z index of Cognitio.

Mythology is the term used to indicate both the study – often referred to individual religions – of myths and the complex of mythical beliefs. These mainly concern three topics:

1) The origin of the world;

2) The origin of man;

3) The origin of the privileged people with respect to the divinity (the maker of the myth itself).

Divinity

It may be that ancient civilizations have considered their myths as the memory of events actually happening, often linked to the very origin of the world and man. Certainly, historical cultures very often (or almost always) have questioned the literal truth of myths, questioning the reasons and ways of the birth of these ancient accounts closely related to the divine thought. An example of myth may be the universal flood is a myth that is found anywhere, in almost all ancient mythologies, even in geographically distant peoples. The first conceivable hypothesis is that this myth is the description of a flood in very distant times, the narrative of which was handed down orally and then transcribed. In addition to the classic in the narrow sense (Greek and Roman), there are different types of mythologies and the richest ones are Indian and Mesopotamian ones. However, there is no ancient culture without its own mythology.
