Gender Roles of the Deities at Sea in Antiquity
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis seeks to research and establish the significance of gender as it relates to the roles of Greek and Roman deities in the lives of seafaring citizens. Greek and Roman mythology has provided a long-standing area of interest in academia, along with Classics in general. This thesis will focus on providing broader knowledge of ancient religion at sea and the influence of major gods, such as Poseidon, as well as lesser deities. I intend to read and analyze primary sources, secondary scholarship, and archeological evidence to help develop an accurate understanding of various deities particularly important to life at sea and the role gender played in the power or position maintained by each god or goddesses.
