A professor at Durham University, Graziosi traces the cultural influence of the Olympian gods, who outlasted the ancient Greeks and travelled east to India and Babylonia and west to the Americas. Drawing on literary and archaeological sources, she begins with the emergence of the earliest stories in archaic Greece then shows how medieval Christianity and Islam transformed the gods into demons and allegories, before they emerged as ambassadors of classical civilization in the context of Renaissance belief in humanity.
