Clash of the Gods – Medusa
Clash of the Gods is a documentary series produced by the History Channel. The series takes a look on many of the characters of ancient Greek and Norse Mythology. The episodes cover different characters as Zeus, Hades, Hercules, Beowulf, Thor, and Hercules.
The series is much more exciting than a simple storytelling by scholars. In these hour-long episodes, myths are dramatized in a Hollywood like style that perhaps crosses the line of what a documentary should be. Nevertheless the series is quite enjoyable and gives good information
According to Greek Mythology Medusa was once a beautiful priestess of Athena until her vow of chastity was broken by Poseidon raping her. Refusing to punish Poseidon, Athena turns her wrath on Medusa. She was transformed into a monster so hideous that would turn any person who saw her gaze into stone. But she eventually meets her end at the hands of Perseus. In this episode entitled “Medusa”, everything related with this legend will be explained.
