Key: The essential Olympians ' names are given in bold font . Key: The names marked in green are that of the 12 original Titans . Notes ^ a b Conflicting origins. Eros is usually mentioned as the son of Aphrodite and Ares, but Hesiod's Theogony places him as one of the primordial beings, born from the Void (Chaos). ^ a b There are two major conflicting stories for Aphrodite's origins: Hesiod ( Theogony ) claims that she was "born" from the foam of the sea after Cronus castrated Uranus, thus making her Uranus' daughter; but Homer ( Iliad , book V) has Aphrodite as daughter of Zeus and Dione. According to Plato ( Symposium 180e), the two were entirely separate entities: Aphrodite Ourania and Aphrodite Pandemos . ^ In the mainstream tradition found in Homer , as supported by Attic vase paintings, Hephaestus was the son of Zeus and Hera.

The right half of the front panel of the seventh century Franks Casket , depicting the pan-Germanic legend of Weyland Smith also Weyland The Smith, which was apparently also a part of Anglo-Saxon pagan mythology. Anglo-Saxon paganism refers to the religious beliefs and practices followed by the Anglo-Saxons between the fifth and eighth centuries AD, during the initial period of Early Medieval England . A variant of the Germanic paganism found across much of north-western Europe, it encompassed a heterogeneous variety of disparate beliefs and cultic practices. [ 1 ] Developing from the earlier Iron Age religion of continental northern Europe, it was introduced to Britain following the Anglo-Saxon migration in the mid fifth century, and remained the dominant religion in England until the Christianization of its kingdoms between the seventh and eighth centuries, with some aspects gradually blending into folklore .

Uranus ( pron.: / ˈ jʊər ə n ə s / or / j ʊ ˈ r eɪ n ə s / ; Ancient Greek Οὐρανός , Ouranos meaning "sky" or "heaven") was the primal Greek god personifying the sky . His equivalent in Roman mythology was Caelus . In Ancient Greek literature , Uranus or Father Sky was the son and husband of Gaia , Mother Earth. According to Hesiod 's Theogony , Uranus was conceived by Gaia alone, but other sources cite Aether as his father. [ 3 ] Uranus and Gaia were the parents of the first generation of Titans , and the ancestors of most of the Greek gods, but no cult addressed directly to Uranus survived into Classical times, [ 4 ] and Uranus does not appear among the usual themes of Greek painted pottery . Elemental Earth, Sky and Styx might be joined, however, in a solemn invocation in Homeric epic. [ 5 ]
Moai facing inland at Ahu Tongariki , restored by Chilean archaeologist Claudio Cristino in the 1990s Moai i / ˈ m oʊ . aɪ / , or mo‘ai , are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people from rock on the Chilean Polynesian island of Easter Island between the years 1250 and 1500. [ 1 ] Nearly half are still at Rano Raraku , the main moai quarry, but hundreds were transported from there and set on stone platforms called ahu around the island's perimeter. Almost all moai have overly large heads three-fifths the size of their bodies. The moai are chiefly the living faces ( aringa ora ) of deified ancestors ( aringa ora ata tepuna ). [ 2 ] The statues still gazed inland across their clan lands when Europeans first visited the island, but most were cast down during later conflicts between clans.
Chaos ( Greek χάος , khaos ) refers to the formless or void state preceding the creation of the universe or cosmos in the Greek creation myths , more specifically the initial "gap" created by the original separation of heaven and earth . The motif of Chaoskampf ( German for "struggle against chaos") is ubiquitous in such myths, depicting a battle of a culture hero deity with a chaos monster , often in the shape of a serpent or dragon . The same term has also been extended to parallel concepts in the religions of the Ancient Near East . [ edit ] Terminology

The numbers three and nine are significant numbers in Norse mythology and paganism . Both numbers (and multiplications thereof) appear throughout surviving attestations of Norse paganism, in both mythology and cultic practice. [ 1 ] While the number three appears significant in many cultures, Norse mythology appears to put special emphasis on the number nine. Along with the number 27, both numbers also figure into the lunar Germanic calendar . [ 1 ] [ edit ] Attestations [ edit ] Three
The cosmology of Norse mythology has ' nine homeworlds', unified by the world tree Yggdrasill . Mapping the nine worlds escapes precision because the Poetic Edda often alludes vaguely, and the Prose Edda may be influenced by medieval Christian cosmology. The Norse creation myth tells how everything came into existence in the gap between fire and ice, and how the gods shaped the homeworld of humans.
Bunworth Banshee The mythology of pre-Christian Ireland did not entirely survive the conversion to Christianity , but much of it was preserved, shorn of its religious meanings, in medieval Irish literature , which represents the most extensive and best preserved of all the branches of Celtic mythology . Although many of the manuscripts have failed to survive, and much more material was probably never committed to writing, there is enough remaining to enable the identification of distinct, if overlapping, cycles: the Mythological Cycle , the Ulster Cycle , the Fenian Cycle and the Historical Cycle . There are also a number of extant mythological texts that do not fit into any of the cycles.
