  25. Greek religion/mythology
    Religious Beliefs
    • Religion was important to Greeks as they believed it would make their life better while living.
    • They believed the gods would look after them when they died
    Religious Practices
    • Ancient Greeks were polytheistic – they believed in many different gods and goddesses
    • Greek mythology is the body of stories about gods and goddesses
    • They believed the gods had control of everything such as the winner of a race or the tides in the ocean
    • They believed each god or goddess had control of one or two aspects of life
    • Temples were built for the gods where the Greeks could pray and offer animal sacrifices at times of festivals
    • Olympic games began as a festival to honor Zeus, the chief god
    • Believed all the gods and goddesses lived at the top of Mount Olympus
    gods
    • Be able to name one Greek god/goddess and describe what he/she was the god of and a few details about the god (symbols, family, background, etc). Use your notes if you need help with this.

    Zeus; King of the gods. Last (god) born of Rhea and Cronos. One of the (major) THREE Control of the Sky. Roman name: Jupitar The imposing columns of the Temple of Zeus, Athens, Greece.
    deTraci Regula, courtesy ACFPZeus’s Appearance: Usually represented as an older, vigorous bearded man. But representations of Zeus as a powerful young man also exist.
    Zeus’ Symbols or Attributes: Thunderbolt.

    Zeus’s Strengths: Highly powerful, strong, charming, persuasive.

    Zeus’s Weaknesses: Gets in trouble over love affairs, can be moody.

    Major Temple Sites of Zeus to Visit:Dodona in northwestern Greece; the Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens; Mount Olympus.

    Zeus’s Birthplace:Zeus is most commonly believed to be born in a cave on Mount Ida on the island of Crete where he took ashore Europa at the beach of Matala. The Cave of Psychro or Diktaean Cave above the Lassithi Plain is also said to be his birthplace. His mother is Rhea and his father is Kronos; things got off to a rocky start as Kronos, fearful of being usurped, kept eating Rhea’s children. Finally, she got wise after giving birth to Zeus and subsituted a swaddled rock for her husband’s snack. Zeus conquered his father and freed his siblings, who were still living in Kronos’ stomach.

    Zeus’s Tomb:Unlike mainland Greeks, the Cretans believed that Zeus died and was resurrected annually. His “tomb” was said to be on Mount Juchtas just outside of Heraklion, where from the west the mountain looks like a giant man lying on his back. A Minoan peak sanctuary crowns the mountain and can be visited, though these days it has to share space with cell phone towers.
