Comparative Mythology


The school aims to provide learning materials to help the learner understand comparative mythology i.e. the comparison of the myths of various cultures to identify common themes. The school is organized into a number of departments which use the "Topic" namespace. Departments contain links to courses, learning materials and learning projects. The departments are listed in the sidebar at the right of the page. You can begin the learning process at the coordinating page: Comparative Mythology.
