Çıtak 1 Erkan ÇITAK Mustafa ŞAHİNER İDE 252 Mythology II 28 June 2020 Thor’s Counterparts in Greek Mythology There are many mythologies in the world, and all of these have things in not unusual as well as differences. A very famous mythology might be Greek mythology, which many humans know about it or at least recognize of it. Another no longer as popular mythology is Norse mythology; Norse mythology is the faith of the Norse humans. The Norse human beings are the ancient human beings of Northern Europe (Scandinavia, Iceland, Denmark, Northern Germany etc.) Norse and Greek mythology has many reputedly similar elements, which I suspect have some aspect to do with their Indo-European origin. To interfere Thor’s counterparts in Greek Mythology some characters may depict who share similar traits with Thor, but none that match him exactly. Thor is the god of thunder. In Greek mythology, that would be Zeus/Jupiter. However, Zeus is the king of the gods and much extra effective than Thor. Still, the thunder identity is important enough to name Thor’s Day (Thursday).
