The Anatomy of Myth

The Art of Interpretation from the Presocratics to the Church Fathers

Michael Herren

  • This book is the most comprehensive treatment of ancient myths criticism.
  • Uses the evidence of Greek myth-critical methods to support the thesis that their adoption by the Church Fathers for interpreting the Bible created a perennial defense against literalism and fundamentalism.
