The Center for the Study of Myth & Religion in Greek & Roman Antiquity (affiliated with the Department of Philology, University of Patras) is proud to announce a forthcoming International Conference on "Mythical History & Historical Myth", to be held in summer 2019, at Patras University.
The Conference welcomes papers asking opportune questions and – hopefully – reaching enlightened answers, leading to a better understanding of intentional and incidental amalgamation of the mythical and the historical parameters, as well as the perception of History at an early stage of its appearance as a science.
