Minoan mythology

The mythology Minoan refers to the cults practiced in Crete by the Minoan civilization. These cults are turned towards nature, vegetation and their rhythms. This is particularly noticeable through gods and goddesses who die and are reborn each year, and through the use of symbols such as the bull (or bull's horns), serpent, doves. Although it disappears with the arrival of Achaeans then Dorians in Greece then in Crete, the Minoan religion nevertheless left its mark in the myths and the pantheon of classical Greece.
