LLS 1355 - Greek Mythology

Credits: 3 hrs.
Ancient Greek gods and goddesses lorded over their subjects with selfish intent.  Mortals were often pawns in elaborate schemes and the objects of deception.  Mortals had to walk a delicate line of respect (in relation to the gods) in order not to cause offense and suffer the consequence of heresy.  The curse of Medusa, the 12 labors of Hercules, the toil of Sisyphus and the anguish of Tantalus are examples of the life changing judgments made by the gods against mortals. This seminar will use films as a tool to learn about Greek Mythology and explore the judgments made by the gods and how these judgments mirror the values/beliefs of Ancient Greece.
