African mythology gods

There are numerous examples of metamorphoses in classical literature, among them in Ovid's Metamorphoses, Circe transforming Odysseus' men into pigs in Homer's Odyssey, or Lucius transforming himself into a donkey in Apuleius' Metamorphoses. Proteus was famous among the gods for his transformations: both Menelaus and Aristeus trapped him to get information out of him, and they succeed only because they held him tightly during his various transformations. Nereus told Herakles where to find the apples of the Hesperides for the same reason.

In other tales, women appealed to other gods for protection from rape and were transformed (Daphne into a laurel tree, Cornix into a raven). Unlike the transformations of Zeus and other gods, these women metamorphosed permanently.

In one account, Demeter transformed herself into a mare to escape from Poseidon, but Poseidon in turn transformed himself into a stallion to pursue her and succeeded in raping her. Cenis, after being raped by Poseidon, demands that he transform her into a male. The god agreed and she became Ceneus, a form she never abandoned, except, in some versions, when she died.

African mythology creatures

Scottish mythology is the collection of myths that have arisen throughout Scottish history, elaborated in some cases by successive generations, and at other times rejected and replaced by other explanatory narratives.

Rivers in Scotland were regarded as the dwelling places of goddesses, and their characteristics denoted the nature of the river, such as the River Forth, which is called the "deaf or silent river" due to its silent flowing conditions, or the River Clyde which is called the "purifying river", as it was the cause of scrubbing and cleansing, carrying "mud and clay" during the flood season.

  Evil fairies in folklore

Once the Picts adopted the Gaelic culture and their real characteristics passed into oblivion, the gaps in history were filled with folkloric elements. The "sudden disappearance" of this people was explained as a massacre that took place at a banquet offered by Kenneth MacAlpin (a typical theme in international folklore) and they were attributed fairy-like powers, brewing alcoholic beverages from brews with secret recipes and living in subway chambers. In the 18th century the Picts were appropriated as a "Germanic" race.[citation needed]
