Ancient Greek cosmogonies & cosmologies

The ancient Greeks were amongst the first people to have asked questions about the origins of the world without recourse to religious explanations - and to have recorded the answers.

Here are some of those answers, as well as the mythological schemes which often served as their basis.



Creation according to Hesiod's Theogony.

Hesiod & the Muse.

Hesiod's five ages of man.


Alcman's cosmogony: Thetis as prime mover?.
