Werewolves-Greek Mythology and Werewolf

Greek Mythology and Werewolf


Greek mythology also testifies to the existence of werewolves. God Zeus once disguised himself as a traveler and sought for hospitality in the court of vicious Arcadian King Lycaon. The King recognized the god and tried to kill him. He served him human flesh. God

 Zeus caught the terrible trick and did not eat. Outraged, He destroyed the palace and condemned Lycaon to spend rest of his life as a wolf. This mythology originated the word “Lycanthrope” which is used to describe the werewolf phenomenon. (Greek lykos – wolf, and anthropos – man.)
