Throughout ancient history, every great empire has adopted their own pantheon and mythology, consisting of various deities, heroes, monsters, and events. All of which are unique in their own right, but in spite of their differences, many seem to tell similar underlying stories.

From the ancient cuneiform script of Mesopotamia, to the modern texts of Theology, we will cross examine each pantheons’ characters as well as the roles played during their lifetimes and after their deifications. The influence of these pantheons are paramount to our current understanding of how civilization, as we know it, came to be.
