Greek Mythology from the Orthodox View | Fall

View the Course Flyer

"What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?" asked Tertullian, referring to Greek philosophy and the Christian Faith. Yet we would do just as well to ask the same question in reference to the Greek myths that have so thoroughly captured the Western imagination for thousands of years.

In this semester-long class, we will explore this question by reading a variety of Greek myths. We will discover how myths arose, what they can tell us about the Ancient Greeks, and what they can reveal about Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.

Required Materials:
Books and supplies are not included in the purchase of the course.

  • Anthology of Classical Myth: Primary Sources in Translation
  • Orthodox Study Bible
  • Instructor Provided PDF resources

Mindi Popovich-Schneider knew from the time she was seven years old that her future career would involve books. She received her BA in English with a minor in Classics from Hillsdale College and a Master's in Library Science with a focus in Youth Services from the University of Wisconsin. Ultimately, she realized that she wanted to serve the Church more directly (while still reading as many books as possible) and left libraries to work in education. She is currently the assistant for Saint Emmelia Ministries, and previously served as a college counselor at Philadelphia Classical School. As a homeschool alumna, she is delighted and honored to walk with homeschool families as their children learn more about our Creator and the beautiful world He has given us. In her free time, she enjoys playing the ukulele, writing, or delightedly making mediocre watercolors and embroidery pieces. She lives in Eastern PA with her husband Calvin, their son, two beehives, and one grouchy cat.

Red checkmarkComputer: You will need a stable, reliable computer, running with a processor with a speed of 1 GHz or better on one of the following operating systems: Mac OS X with Mac OS 10.7 or later; Windows 8, 7, Vista (with SP1 or later), or XP (with SP3 or later). We do not recommend using an iPad or other tablet for joining classes. An inexpensive laptop or netbook would be much better solutions, as they enable you to plug an Ethernet cable directly into your computer. Please note that Chromebooks are allowed but not preferred, as they do not support certain features of the Zoom video conference software such as breakout sessions and annotation, which may be used by our teachers for class activities.

Red checkmarkHigh-Speed Internet Connection: You will also need access to high-speed Internet, preferably accessible via Ethernet cable right into your computer. Using Wi-Fi may work, but will not guarantee you the optimal use of your bandwidth. The faster your Internet, the better. We recommend using a connection with a download/upload speed of 5/1 Mbps or better. You can test your Internet connection here.
