RELG 395: World Mythology Course Guide: Primary Sources

Resources for Dr. Conroy's RELG 395

Primary Sources

What is a primary source?

A primary source is anything that provides a first-hand look at the original story.  This could be anything from a photograph to an interview or even a piece of creative writing.

For the purposes of the Hero assignment, you will want to look for the first places a hero was mentioned, or at least the earliest interpretation you can find (for example, David's [of Goliath fame] primary resource would be the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament of the Bible, not VeggieTales).
