We continue studying the evolution of religion, especially our own traditions, by looking at heroes. We wonder if the stories of Moses, Jesus, or Mary reflect those of earlier heroic figures from Indo-European, Semitic, or other cultures. WE examine the links between three hero types: human (Moses, Zoroaster, Odysseus), semi-divine (Aeneas, Gilgamish, Mwindo), and divine (Horus, Krishna, Jesus). We watch DVD lectures by professors and read excerpts from scholarly writing. Some of our experts are: Joseph Campbell, Elizabeth Vandiver, John Hale, Barbara Walker, David Leeming, Grant Yoth, and Kathryn McClymond. Join us for a tolerant, stimulating discussion. All opinions are welcome.
