by Thomas Bulfinch, 
These links are presented in the order in which they appear on the syllabus...
"This is an introduction to Ancient Greek Mythology. It combines information from a number of sources and attempts to be a comprehensive reference work."
Encyclopedia Mythica: Greek Mythology
"The body of traditional tales concerning the gods, heroes, and rituals of the ancient Greeks. Critical Greeks, such as Plato in the 5th-4th century BCE, recognized the considerable element of fiction in the myths, although in general the Greeks viewed them as true accounts. There is a separate area for Greek people, containing all about Greek mortals."
Encyclopedia Mythica: Judaic Mythology
"Judaic myths grew from many sources. The primary source is the Bible; it covers a period between polytheism and monotheism, thus allowing a rich environment for myths. After that, much of the mythological material was retained, and elaborated on, in the two Talmuds, the midrashic literature, and the mystical literature, mostly as expressed in the Zohar. More exists in the Apocrypha, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and in various texts written in Aramaic and Greek but pertaining to Judaism."
King James Bible
