Our mythology guides let you pry into the online profiles, inboxes, and diaries of the gods. We'll give you the dish on their personal lives and all the dramatic pickles they found themselves in. Or, you know, caused.
Greek and Roman Gods + Figures
Greek and Roman mythology is intricate enough to befuddle the most studious outsider. But don't worry—Shmoop has you covered from biographies of Zeus and Aphrodite to what Achilies and Agamemnon are flaming about on Facebook.
Greek and Roman Stories
It turns out the gods and heroes of ancient Greece and Rome aren't too different from us modern folk. These myths have all the romance, feuds, and transmutation you'd expect from the next school dance.
Norse Gods + Figures
Thor may be the only viking god deemed worthy of the silver screen, but there's plenty of character in this cast of Norse mythology—from Aegir the party animal to conniving Loki.
Every culture has its myths, but the Norse stories are some of the most fun. From the creation myth to the case of the missing hammer, we'll fill you in on all the juicy deets.
Egyptian Gods + Figures
Nephthys and Wepwawet are more than just hard-to-pronounce names. Along with Isis, Osiris, and the gang, they make up the gaggle of gods from Egyptian mythology.
Celtic Gods + Figures
If Shmoop were a Celtic god, we'd probably be called Shmoop mac Schoolwork. But since we're not, we decided to just give you the low down on all your favorite Celtic gods and figures.
