"I purchased this for my introduction to religion course, and they loved it. Very good, and very informative. I highly recommend this!"
Introduction to the gods and culture

"As others have said, this is a solid video introducing the Greek/Roman mythology. You will get a quick introduction to the major gods spelled out by experts. Happily, they are all reasonably entertaining speakers. The material is presented at a good pace but if you are a novice there is a LOT of material here for a single sitting. One nice feature that others have not mentioned is the discussion of the integration of Greek/Roman religions and cultures into/with other cultures. The discussion of the parallels between these religions and Christianity is thought provoking. If you don't know much about the Greek/Roman gods and want to start building a foundation this is a great place to start."
Good for classroom use

"I am a ninth grade English teacher, and I ordered this DVD to help prepare my students for reading excerpts from The Odyssey. I don't show the entire program. I think there are eight parts (chapters on the DVD), and I show four of the eight. My students seemed to like the program, although I had to prepare them for the "talking head" academics who show up from time to time. Their commentary is interesting, but kids seem to tune out a DVD as soon as someone comes on the screen and there aren't any graphics, interesting pictures, etc. All in all, I think it is a worthwhile purchase for a teacher looking for supplemental material related to Greek mythology."
