About this ebook

The highest mountain in Greece and also the seat of the ancient Greek gods, Olympus has been more or less omnipresent in mythology since ancient times. Over the ages, the concept of it has fluctuated elusively between the real mountain and the supernatural seat of the gods. The idea of it as the home of the gods detached itself from the actual mountain and became universally applicable. Achim Lichtenberger investigates the multilayered phenomenon of Olympus by first describing the ways in which human beings have imagined the mountain, then outlining the mountain in its geographical context, and finally tracing the idea of the holy mountain throughout the Mediterranean region. In the process, Olympus turns out to provide key testimony to Greek cultural history, and its attractiveness and ideal quality are exemplary for Greek culture and religion.
