The Theogony of Hesiod
translated by Hugh G. Evelyn-White

"Theogony" is a historical narration covering a long era which starts with the appearance of the first men in the mountains, and ends with the post-Zeus epoch. "Theogony" was a very important work for the ancient Hellenes because it served them as the touchstone which would enable them to check which of the various beliefs about gods were reliable. It constituted the Religious Canon for Hellenes and it was exactly what Moses' Bible was for Jews. It had a great influence over the Hellenic religion because Hellenes sought for unanimity on religious matters. The great pre-cataclysm lost civilization is unfolded slowly before the reader's eyes through the innumerable references to persons, situations, events, scientific and empirical knowledge as well as historic elements.
