Chapter Summary

This index section presents the list of author names, terms and concept on Greek religion and culture and the passages from the Bible. In the last decades there has been an increasing interest in the relationship between Greek religion and culture and the Ancient Near East. One of the best known Greek myths is that of Jason and his Argonauts, who sailed to Colchis to fetch the Golden Fleece. The myth is already mentioned in the Odyssey as ?world famous' and is a good illustration of both how the Greeks appropriated oriental motifs and the roads along which these motifs reached them.

Keywords: Ancient Near East; Golden Fleece; Greek culture; Greek myths; Greek religion
