Synopsis:

“Myths are universal and timeless stories that reflect and shape our lives – they explore our desires, our fears, our longings and provide narratives that remind us what it means to be human.”  What are the meaning of the words myth and mythology, and why are they necessary for the study of a culture or religion? These are the main questions that will be answered here.
