Religion in Greek

Student’s Name



Religion in Greek

Every society had different beliefs about religion. The Greek society is well known
because it derived its religious beliefs from the numerous myths that existed. Homer and Hesiod
are described as the first people to explain the origin and nature of the existence of humans. The
religious beliefs of the ancient Greek society revolved around a monotheistic god who ruled the
world but with the help of other smaller gods. The society presented the gods as human in nature
though they were immortal. Religions also had various beliefs concerning evil where it was
punishable by death or suffering. However, there arose the concept of philosophy which intended
to challenge the religious beliefs of creation. The first group of philosophers was known as the
Milesians who challenged the religious beliefs by taking a naturalistic explanation of existence.

The creation and structure of the universe

The ancient Greek religion had various beliefs about creation from the myths that existed.
According to this mythology, the Greeks believed that the world was a flat disk that once floated
on the ocean. Nevertheless, this disk was personified so that it had a body and a soul. People
believed that there was only some gaping emptiness that they referred to as Chaos at the
beginning of creation. From this Chaos, there sprang three more divine beings referred to as
Gaea known as the earth, Tarus called the underworld and Eros also called love. Now that there
was love, Chaos and Gaea were able to shape everything in the world through procreation
(Breitenberger, 2013). Each of the female deities gave yielded children of their own. According
to Greek mythology, Chaos gave birth to two children Erebus (darkness) and Nyx (night) who
later reproduced to yield more children. The beliefs, however, claim that Gaea gave birth to
Uranus (the Starry Sky) who later became her husband. When this happened, the two produced
three sets of children namely: the twelve Titans, the three one-eyed Cyclopes, and the three
Hundred-Handed Hecatoncheires. Nevertheless, Uranus did not become a responsible husband
and father, and he was very harsh on his family. He even did not allow his children to see the
light of day. Uranus eventually imprisoned his children in Gaea’s womb which is considered as
the hidden places of the earth. Gaea and her son were angered by Uranus’ hostility towards them,
and they plotted to kill him. Afraid of their father, nobody was willing to take the challenge until
Cronus, the youngest of the twelve Titans agreed to it (Eidinow& Kindt, 2015). So, Cronus
attacked his father as he was preparing to lay with Gaea using the sickle that she had designed.
Cronus attacked and castrated Uranus’ genitals that he threw into the ocean. However, little is
known about what happen...
