The Homeric Gods


By Walter F. Otto, Published in 1947



First published in German in 1947 as “Die Götter Griechenlands. Das Bild des Göttlichen im Spiegel des griechischen Geistes.” Scholarly yet eminently readable, it aims to give the modern reader a true understanding of ancient Greek religion. Anyone familiar with the Homeric epics will find this book indispensable and illuminating auxiliary reading. It remains the most luminous treatment for the non-professional reader who seeks understanding as well as knowledge.
