Home : Rituals : Roman : Template ADF Member Login by Jenni Hunt It has been a challenge to adapt ADF's standard liturgical formulae for a Roman hearth culture, and being the legalistic, formulaic Roman that I am, I need to accompany this article with certain disclaimers. First of all, this is most certainly a work in progress; I'm working out the kinks as I go along, and this is only the tip of the iceberg. Secondly, I have drawn from sources as widely varying as Cato's De Agri Cultura to Ceiswr Serith's Pagan Book of Prayer .

myths and legends
In common parlance, a myth is a fiction -- something which is untrue. Scholars of mythology define myth differently: a myth is a special kind of story which tries to interpret some aspect of the world around us. Robert W. Brockway, in his book Myth from the Ice Age to Mickey Mouse concisely summarizes a number of different scholarly ideas about the meaning of myth as follows:
a Ioanne Opsopoeo scripta magistro ordinis haruspicum LX THE ART OF HARUSPICY which is THE ETRUSCAN DISCIPLINE by John Opsopaus Introduction History "Haruspicy" is a method of divination that was practiced by the ancient Etruscans, who had an advanced civilization in Italy before the Roman Empire.

The term " mythology " can refer either to the study of myths (e.g., comparative mythology ), or to a body or collection of myths (a mythos , e.g., Inca mythology ). [ 1 ] In folkloristics , a myth is a sacred narrative usually explaining how the world or humankind came to be in its present form, [ 2 ] although, in a very broad sense, the word can refer to any traditional story . [ 3 ] Bruce Lincoln defines myth as "ideology in narrative form". [ 4 ] Myths typically involve supernatural characters and are endorsed by rulers or priests. They may arise as either truthful depictions or overelaborated accounts of historical events, as allegory for or personification of natural phenomena, or as an explanation of ritual . They are transmitted to convey religious or idealized experience, to establish behavioral models, and to teach .

Chinese mythology refers to those myths found in the historical geographic area of China : these include myths in Chinese and other languages, as transmitted by Han Chinese as well as other ethnic groups (of which fifty-six are officially recognized by the current administration of China). [ 1 ] Chinese mythology includes creation myths and legends, such as myths concerning the founding of Chinese culture and the Chinese state. As in many cultures' mythologies, Chinese mythology has in the past been believed to be, at least in part, a factual recording of history. Thus, in the study of historical Chinese culture, many of the stories that have been told regarding characters and events which have been written or told of the distant past have a double tradition: one which presents a more historicized and one which presents a more mythological version.
