Sample text

The first mythographical work was the Genealogies of Hecataeus of Miletus, writing in the late sixth and early fifth century BCE . This treatise tried to make sense of the conflicting genealogies of gods and heroes (and the humans who claimed descent from them), and it seems to have done so by a process of rationalization (however inconsistently applied). It is not known whether Hecataeus or any other ‘‘mythographer’’ commented upon the quality of the tradition or sought to elaborate a methodology for solving the problems of conflicting and/or fabulous traditions.
