Description:

Greek gods and goddesses were seen as being much like men and women. The term for this is ‘anthropomorphism’, meaning &quotin the form of a human&quot. The gods were conceived as more heroic in stature, more outstanding in beauty and proportion, and more powerful and enduring than humans. They were nevertheless endowed with many human weaknesses. They could be jealous, envious, spiteful and petty. Among them only Zeus was known as &#8220Just&#8221. The Greeks believed that their gods lived on Mount Olympus where they dwelt together in a community of light and pleasantness, and from this height they mingled with and often interfered with the lives of mortals.
