Explore the world of mythology with Edith Hamilton, enjoy the stories of a distant culture, and see how God’s design for mankind is seen even in the most unlikely places! Since references to ancient myths are found throughout literature, this class will benefit students who strive to better understand both literature and ancient history. In this 15 week class students will explore Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology. We will delve into ancient ideologies, culture, and deities while maintaining a Godly perspective. Since this course is discussion driven, a working microphone is required. This class is ideal for grades 9-12.
