The Mythology Resource Pages provide a starting point for users wishing to research topics in mythology. These pages serve as a glossary, not an encyclopedia. These lists collect subjects from mythology, folklore, and legend. All entries should be drawn from the Renaissance or before and should lie within the public domain. This project is complete. Add your own links as desired.--Phoenix 20:41, 16 October 2008 (UTC) (UTC)
