Indulge Your Inner Myth Geek
By QB Curator
Somewhere in the savage land of Internetlandia lives a database more fiercely folkloric than any other database to date. Behold, Encyclopedia Mythica!
Over 7,000 articles on topics ranging from Arthurian legends to Inuit myth make up this specialized website. All articles are grouped into one of the following categories: Mythology, Folklore, Bestiary, and Heroes. The database also boasts an image gallery, a pronunciation guide, and a collection of genealogy tables.
The brainchild of Editor-in-chief, Micha F. Lindemans, Encyclopedia Mythica is a non-profit database nearly 17 years old. Contributors mainly include doctors of language and literature, like Ilil Arbel, Ph.D. Hebrew Mythology, and Olga Gómez, Ph.D. Spanish folklore.
Though the website has not been updated since July 11, 2011, don't assume it's ancient history. (Well, it is, but not in the sense of that expression...) The staff's currently in the process of reviewing 17,500 articles for the new edition of the database.
Besides, it'll take you long enough to read the thousands already on the site. So go brush up on the principal gods of Norse mythology.
