In a single volume, it not only fills a vacuum in my education, it clearly and concisely provides fascinating insights into a world to which we are all indebted—a world of gods, and heroes, and spirits, and magick, and all that is great, judicious, and distinct in the western soul."—Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Homemade Magick and Low Magick "Communion with the gods is grounded in everyday practice. Hellenismos provides the reader with the necessary tools to quickly enter into Pagan Greek religion. The book combines an accurate historical understanding with practices updated for today's needs."—Brandy Williams, author of For the Love of the Gods and The Woman Magician "Mierzwicki has succeeded in combining fine scholarship with deep vision to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of Grecian polytheistic theory and practice. His offering brings to life an ancient tradition made relevant for modern times."—Kristoffer Hughes, author of The Book of Celtic Magic, From the Cauldron Born, and The Journey Into Spirit "Hellenismos is an excellent guide to practicing ancient Greek polytheism. Advancing from daily, personal practices, to the sacred lunar month, and finally to the annual festival cycle, Tony gently draws the reader deeper into Hellenic polytheism."—John Opsopaus, author of The Oracles of Apollo and The Pythagorean Tarot "Hellenismos makes an open and shut case for the need to modify the ancient Greek religion to suit the modern world, rather than recreating it faithfully...The author provides a wonderful guide to crafting your own personal path of venerating the ancient Greek gods and goddesses while remaining true to the spirit of the time."—Karen Tate, author of Walking An Ancient Path "In Hellenismos author Tony Mierzwicki provides an invaluable resource for both novice and experienced practitioners of ancient Greek religion...With instructions for holding daily, monthly, and annual observances, this book is nothing less than a toolkit for building your personal Hellenic path."—Alaric Albertsson, author of A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery and Magic and To Walk a Pagan Path

Pre-University Paper from the year 2015 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1, , language: English, abstract: This paper should primarily deal with the Greek mythology that occurs in the final book of the Harry Potter series Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, written by Joanne K. Rowling. It will show how deeply Miss Rowling immersed herself in Greek mythology in order to find suitable names for her characters, which myths she revived in her novel, which creatures are mythology-related and what magic and objects were inspired by Greek mythology. Furthermore it will also touch on the story of the Deathly Hallows itself in order to recall what happens and who wins the fight between Good and Bad. This paper aims to determine how much Greek mythology plays a part in J. K. Rowling’s book, and the extent to which these uses tally with their Greek origins, based on comparisons between literature that deals with Greek mythology and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In sum, the paper will show by what measure Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is inspired by Greek mythology, and how much the story has in common with the ancient Greek tales.

The story of Jason and the Argonauts is one of the most famous in Greek myth, and its development from the oldest layers of Greek mythology down to the modern age encapsulates the dramatic changes in faith, power and culture that Western civilization has seen over the past three millennia. From the Bronze Age to the Classical Age, from the medieval world to today, the Jason story has been told and retold with new stories, details and meanings. This book explores the epic history of a colorful myth and probes the most ancient origins of the quest for the Golden Fleece--a quest that takes us to the very dawn of Greek religion and its close relationship with Near Eastern peoples and cultures.
