Dictionary of Mythology

S.K. Bhatia (Editor) Manish Bhatia (Compiler) Geeta Saxena (Compiler)
Synopsis Mythology is popularly known as the science or study of myths (traditional or legend any stories usually concerned with deities of demigods) and the creation of the World and its habitants. Myth is also known as story or belief that attempts to express or explain a basic truth; an allegory or parable. It is a belief whose truth or reality is accepted uncritically. Many of the deities and their myths have, over the centuries, been interpreted and reinterpreted to suit the whims and personal bias of generations of writers, with the result that a host of romantic, mystic or religious misinterpretations, egregious errors, and traditional expurgations have been perpetuated from one dictionary to another. This dictionary is based upon works of scholarship, which embody the results of scientific research, a few of which are mentioned in the bibliography. This dictionary is intended to serve as a ready and convenient reference aid for readers, for quick and handy elucidation of the nature of a deity or a mythological term which one would ordinarily encounter in general literature.
