The classical myths have provided themes and subjects for the arts in their different expressions: painting, sculpture, literature, music, theatre, etc. Mythological figures and stories have often served as moralistic examples, in bono or in malo, and as allegorical points of reference, for example in education. This pluridisciplinary study of these phenomena throws light upon the intellectual climate of the period. English and French text.
