Africa isn’t a single place with a single pantheon, and we’d be fools to try and cover all that in an eleven minute video. You’d be right. Instead we’re going to focus on Yoruba religion from west Africa, and the Orishas that populate Yoruba stories. The many, many Orishas cover all aspects of life, and can be pretty specialized.

Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece and is part of religion in modern Greece and around the world, known as Hellenismos. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to throw light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.[1] Greek mythology is explicitly embodied in a large collection of narratives, and implicitly in Greek representational arts, such as vase-paintings and votive gifts. Greek myth attempts to explain the origins of the world, and details the lives and adventures of a wide variety of gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and mythological creatures. These accounts initially were disseminated in an oral-poetic tradition; today the Greek myths are known primarily from Greek literature. The oldest known Greek literary sources, Homer's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey, focus on events surrounding the Trojan War. Two poems by Homer's near contemporary Hesiod, the Theogony and the Works and Days, contain accounts of the genesis of the world, the succession of divine rulers, the succession of human ages, the origin of human woes, and the origin of sacrificial practices. Myths are also preserved in the Homeric Hymns, in fragments of epic poems of the Epic Cycle, in lyric poems, in the works of the tragedians of the fifth century BC, in writings of scholars and poets of the Hellenistic Age, and in texts from the time of the Roman Empire by writers such as Plutarch and Pausanias. Archaeological findings provide a principal source of detail about Greek mythology, with gods and heroes featured prominently in the decoration of many artifacts. Geometric designs on pottery of the eighth century BC depict scenes from the Trojan cycle as well as the adventures of Heracles. In the succeeding Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, Homeric and various other mythological scenes appear, supplementing the existing literary evidence.[2] Greek mythology has had an extensive influence on the culture, arts, and literature of Western civilization and remains part of Western heritage and language. Poets and artists from ancient times to the present have derived inspiration from Greek mythology and have discovered contemporary significance and relevance in the themes.

So, today we’re talking about African Pantheons. Now, you might say, that’s ridiculous. Africa isn’t a single place with a single pantheon, and we’d be fools to try and cover all that in an eleven minute video. You’d be right. Instead we’re going to focus on Yoruba religion from west Africa, and the Orishas that populate Yoruba stories. The many, many Orishas cover all aspects of life, and can be pretty specialized. We’re going to focus on a dozen or so. Crash Course is on Patreon!

The cyclops were primordial giants, that were said to have been born from Gaia, the Earth... They were said to possess great strength and ferocity. Fearing their power, the cyclops were thrown into the pits of Tartarus, by their father Uranus... The monsters remained in prison when the titan Cronus overthrew Uranus, and became the ruler of the universe. It was only when the Olympians came to power, did the cyclops find freedom... Zeus released three Cyclops from the dark pit of Tartarus, who in turn would craft thunderbolts for him...

In this video we will explore the TOP 10 MONSTERS From GREEK Mythology... Belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices, Greek mythology is known for some extremely out of this world mythology. The Greek legends have been the subject of popular culture for thousands of years. The most famous characters in these myths are the gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and mythological creatures. 10. Typhon Typhon was the most deadly monster of Greek mythology. The last son of Gaia, fathered by Tartarus, he was known as the “Father of All Monsters”; his wife Echidna was likewise the “Mother of All Monsters.” He was described in pseudo-Apollodorus, Bibliotheke, as the largest and most fearsome of all creatures. His human upper half supposedly reached as high as the stars, and his hands reached east and west. Instead of a human head, a hundred dragon heads erupted from his neck and shoulders. 8. Echidna Half woman half snake, Echidna known as the “Mother of All Monsters” because most of the monsters in Greek mythology were her offspring. Hesiod’s Theogony described her as: “the goddess fierce Echidna who is half a nymph with glancing eyes and fair cheeks, and half again a huge snake, great and awful, with speckled skin, eating raw flesh beneath the secret parts of the holy earth. And there she has a cave deep down under a hollow rock far from the deathless gods and mortal men. There, then, did the gods appoint her a glorious house to dwell in: and she keeps guard in Arima beneath the earth, grim Echidna, a nymph who dies not nor grows old all her days.” (wikipedia.org). 7. Sphinx 10 Legendary Greek Mythological Creatures A mythical creature with the body of a lion and a human head. In Greek tradition, it has the haunches of a lion, the wings of a great bird, and the face of a woman. She is mythicised as treacherous and merciless. Those who cannot answer her riddle suffer a fate typical in such mythological stories, as they are killed and eaten by this ravenous monster. 6. Griffin Regarded as king of the creatures, the Griffin, with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle’s talons as its front feet. As the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle was the king of the birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. In antiquity it was a symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine. 5. Chimera The Chimera was a monstrous fire-breathing female creature of Lycia in Asia Minor who was composed of the parts of three animals; a lion, a snake and a goat. Usually depicted as a lion, with the head of a goat arising from its back, and a tail that ended in a snake’s head, the Chimera was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and a sibling of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra. 4. Gorgon A dreadful female creature in Greek mythology. Perhaps the most popular Gorgon is Medusa, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. She was the only mortal among the three sisters who’s gaze would turn anyone into stone. She was famously decapitated by Perseus who was armed with a mirror and scythe. 3. Centaur The centaur is a mythological creature with the head, arms, and torso of a human and the body and legs of a horse. They are best known for their fight with the Lapiths, which was caused by their attempt to carry off Hippodamia and the rest of the Lapith women on the day of Hippodamia’s marriage to Pirithous, king of the Lapithae. Perhaps one of the most popular centaurs in Greek mythology is Chiron. He stands in contrast to the typical depiction of centaurs being indulgent and violent drinkers with his intelligence and enviable medical skills. 2. Minotaur Described as “part man and part bull”. The Minotaur was a creature with the head of a bull on the body of a man. He dwelt at the center of the Cretan Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze designed by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus. The bull-man was eventually slain by the Athenian hero Theseus. 1. Siren The dangerous and beautiful creatures in Greek mythology. They were often portrayed as femme fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. They were considered the daughters of the river god Achelous. Roman writers linked the Sirens more closely to the sea, as daughters of Phorcys. Sirens are found in many Greek stories, particularly in Homer’s Odyssey. Their number is variously reported as between two and five.

Basically, a god decides to make a universe out of nothing. We’ll look at the Genesis story (which has nothing to do with Peter Gabriel or Phil Collins), a Mayan creation tale, a Kono story of the beginning, and we’ll even look at the Big Bang.

Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most MYSTERIOUS Extinct Human Species!" video here: https://youtu.be/gISw-q5FKRo Watch our "Most MYSTERIOUS Ocean Facts!" video here: https://youtu.be/BzrlpgRVPQg Watch our "Ancient Objects And HOW They Were Used!" video here: https://youtu.be/0de2nV8OHJk 12. Green Dragon Crescent Blade Wielded by the legendary general Guan Yu in the second and third centuries A.D., the Green Dragon Crescent Blade was said to be a guandao, a traditional Chinese weapon that resembles a halberd. A giant of a man, Guan Yu asked his blacksmiths to make a polearm that combined the chopping power of a saber with the length of a spear. Believed to weigh as much as 45 kilograms or 100 pounds—although some sources say it was no more than 18 kilograms or 40 pounds—no normal human would have been able to use it effectively. Luckily, that wasn’t an issue for the general. Guan Yu wielded the Green Dragon Crescent Blade while defending Liu Bei, the first ruler of Shu Han. Deified after his as a sort of Chinese god, Guan Yu blesses those who show loyalty and brotherhood, traits which defined him in his life. 11. Hrunting & Naegling The two swords of Beowulf, Hrunting and Naegling, came to the Geatish hero in different ways. Unferth, an underling of the Danish lord Hrothgar, lent Beowulf Hrunting. It was already an ancient weapon by that time and said to have never let down a warrior who wielded it. However, in Beowulf’s fight against Grendel’s mother, the sword was unable to harm the monster in any way. Nevertheless, Beowulf later returned Hrunting with nothing but good things to say, as it was useful in every other battle. The epic doesn’t explicitly specify where Naegling comes from. Deriving from the word for “nail,” legends described Naegling as a fine and ancient sword. When Beowulf fought his final battle with the dragon Daeghrefn, he chose to take Naegling. Unfortunately, much like Hrunting, Naegling failed the hero in battle by breaking in two. Although this time, it was because Beowulf’s hand was too strong for the blade. 10. Gae Bulg Given as a gift Aiofe, the mother of his only son, the Irish mythological figure Cuchulainn wielded a unique spear named Gae Bulg. Its name translated as “barbed spear”, “notched spear”, or “belly spear”. Tales describe it as having special barbs all along the shaft. When Gae Bulg pierced a man’s body, these barbs opened up, making the spear nearly impossible to remove without the victim. A few variations of the myth also give the spear seven different heads, each with seven barbs of its own. In addition, Aiofe supposedly fashioned Gae Bulg from the bone of a sea monster, the Coinchenn, which perished fighting another sea monster. Another unique quality of Gae Bulg was the way it was used: Held by the toes, it was kicked upward, piercing the victim’s groin. Cuchulainn used Gae Bulg to not only his foster-brother Ferdiad but also his own son, Connla, whose identity was disguised from Cuchulainn during their fight. 9. Taming Sari Translated as “flower shield,” Taming Sari was the fabled weapon of the legendary Melaysian warrior Hang Tuah. It was a kris, an asymmetrical dagger with a specific blade pattern. Legend says that it was also the first of its kind ever ever created. The sultan recognized Hang Tuah as the best of the Laksamana, or admiral, by giving him the weapon. According to legend the weapon had supernatural powers, including making the bearer invincible. Taming Sari was unique in that it did not have a sheath. Hang Tuah considered his enemy’s body to be the only appropriate sheath for his weapon. Jealous of the favoritism showered on Hang Tuah, various members of the court spread rumors about him. Which must have been pretty nasty, because the Sultan started clamoring for his head! The bendahara, or chief minister, tasked with carrying out the instead, hid Hang Tuah, repaying an old debt. Thinking he was, Hang Tuah’s friend Hang Jebat began everyone he could find. Eventually, the bendahara revealed his hoax. The sultan pardoned Hang Tuah but ordered him to Hang Jebat. With a heavy heart, Hang Tuah his friend with Taming Sari after a lengthy battle, throwing the dagger into a river after he was done. (Similar to Excalibur returning to the Lake).
