Overview

Synopsis

Joseph Campbell: Mythos 1.5 - The Mystical Life
As part five of the Joseph Campbell's Mythos series, this video explores the connection between Christianity and the ancient mystery cults of Greece. Through the examination of artifacts and historical texts, Campbell shows how early Christians borrowed many of its traditions and symbols from these Greek cults, and how these practices and stories are still part of the Christian religion. Oscar Award Wining actress Susan Sarandon hosts. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi

Joseph Campbell: Mythos 1.1 - Psyche & Symbol
As part one of the Joseph Campbell's Mythos series, this video lays the foundation of Campbell's argument that there are many connections between the world's religions and mythologies. Through examinations of Carl Jung's work, artifacts and recorded myths, the viewer is shown several of the archetypal symbols in world religion and what in psychological terms they mean. Campbell then reveals a basic structure to belief, one that is shared by all religions. This stucture is what he likes to call, "the inward path." Oscar Award winning actress Susan Sarandon hosts. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi

Joseph Campbell: Mythos 1.3 - On Being Human
As part three of the Joseph Campbell's Mythos series, this video examines man's emergence from the animal world and entrance into cognition. Through examinations of cave paintings and several early myths, Campbell shows how the Goddess or woman was seen as the creative force behind the universe. This belief led to the creation of religions and practices centered on the female among early hunter-gatherer societies. Oscar Award winning actress Susan Sarandon hosts. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi

Joseph Campbell: Mythos 1.4 - From Goddesses To God
As part four in the Joseph Campbell's Mythos series, this video continues Joseph Campbell's look at the development of religion. Joseph Campbell's Mythos: From Goddess to God examines the reasons behind the shift from early female centered religions to religions that were attached to war-like male gods. Through examination of artifacts, historical records and myths that have been handed down through the ages, Campbell shows the progression of this shift in religion as the nomadic hunter-gatherer societies settled into a more fixed agrarian lifestyle. Campbell also suggests that it is this shift that gave foundation to the Judaic and Christian religions. Oscar Award winning actress Susan Sarandon hosts. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi

Joseph Campbell: Mythos 1.2 - The Spirit Land
As part two of the Joseph Campbell's Mythos series, this video explores the mythology of the native Americans. By investigating and examining several artifacts and folktales in lecture like vignettes, the viewer is shown how the native Americans used their stories and myths to aid them in their everyday lives. These stories were how they taught the young about the world, about why certain things must done and how to accomplish them. By showing this use of mythology, Campbell sets forth the notion that religion and mythology are useful and practical tools. Oscar Award winning actress Susan Sarandon hosts. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi
