Publisher's Summary

Introducing: Captivating stories and facts of Roman gods, goddesses, and mythological creatures! 

In this audiobook, you will discover many fascinating aspects of the Roman gods, goddesses, and mythological creatures. Each of the first six chapters begins with a narrative scene which helps bring the legendary and mythical characters to life. 

In chapter one, you will find the seeds of legitimacy that Virgil planted regarding the Trojan connection to Rome. In chapter two, you will learn about the foundation of Rome by the semi-divine, wolf-suckled brothers, Romulus and Remus. This chapter will also explore the myth of Aeneas’s son. 

In chapter three, you will learn about the gods of Roman origin as well as Roman mythological creatures. Chapter four focuses on the Etruscan influence on Roman mythology. The Greek influence on Roman mythology is the topic of chapter five. 

In chapter six, the audiobook will investigate the Celtic influence and see how the gods of the Celts were melded with the Roman pantheon in creative ways. Finally, in chapter seven, you will discover the potential truths behind the Roman gods, goddesses, and creatures. Every myth had a beginning, and in this chapter, we explore some of the possibilities. 

Just some of the questions and topics covered in this audiobook include: 

  • The Trojan Connection
  • What History and an Analysis of Myth Tell Us
  • Founding of Rome
  • Purely Roman Gods
  • The Creatures of Roman Mythology
  • Borrowings from Etruria

    "I'm in love with this book..."

    I can't believe how lucky I am. This find is a goldmine!!! Of all the books I've read regarding mythology, I have found this one to not only be reachable but also very comprehensive at the same time. The complete book reads like a novel and is rather hard to put down.

    This is a concise, neatly arranged history of the Roman Empire, describing the founding of Rome, its expansion, and its collapse. It includes information about Roman culture, architecture, technology, religions, its emperors and Goddesses, and Mythological Creatures.

    I truly love the book and would've returned it, however, it is the examples of the Roman Gods and Goddesses that are very hard for me to compare to. I would purchase this book again but may be applied rather of fresh.

    The Romans came from a city and went on to dominate their world. Their influence is still with us yet, generally, little is known about them. Covers all aspects of Roman life and history, their Gods, Goddesses, and Mythological Creatures and all about.

    "A good review of all major myths"

    This book gives a fine survey of Roman belief. Each of the above stories and multiple of the minors is included here. I would have wanted to see more of the myths from other religions, but it is natural that they are not involved, given the point that the work. A useful manual to myths.

    "Great tales to share with children "

    Greek and Roman Mythology really peek my interest, and this book captures them both perfectly. This book is like all of the roman myth books combined, along with stories of the conquests of the heroic gods.

    "A Roman Synthesis "

    I love this book. I found Matt's "Mythology" while in high school midway through the last century. I loved it then, and I've always learned it. Very well simplified, and nice illustrations!
