Otto, Walter F.: Die Götter Griechenlands
Das Bild des Göttlichen im Spiegel des griechischen Geistes
Die Götter Griechenlands ("The Homeric Gods") by the distinguished classical scholar Walter F. Otto (1874-1958) to this day remains unsurpassed as a classic rendering of myth and religion in Green antiquity. First published in 1929, the book expresses the author´s conviction that the palpable manifestations of Greek religion are grounded by an idea of unimagined bearing. The religion of ancient Greece grasped the things of the world with an uncomparable sense for the real and in it perceives the divine in its natural ideality. It opens up to the evidence of experience and embraces its abundance and unfathomable diversity to form the great idols of the Gods. In many respects, this book is considered to be the best guide ever written on Homeric religion and Greek polytheism.
