How did the belief in Greek gods affect the daily lives of Greeks?
On Mount Olympus is where they were supposed to have lived
Most of the Greek gods and goddesses lived on Mount Olympus.
Hades lived in the Underworld. The Underworld is split into three parts, The Fields of Asphodel, Elysium, and Tartarus. The Fields of Asphodel were reserved to people who were… like you or me, neither good nor bad. Just imagine a gray cornfield...that's what Asphodel is. Elysium was reserved for heroes and such, while Tartarus was the exact opposite. It was pretty much the Greek equivalent of hell.
Well, the Greeks believed that everything that happened to them was because a God or Goddess chose it to. Deities(gods) were a big part of Greeks lives because they believed t…hat when the gods chose their fate, it was to happen. This affected them in a spiritual way because it made them believers about the gods in their world. In addition, for example, the Greeks would have a celebration in honor of Deiynisus, god of wine, and would put on plays, and as a result this celebration built upon classic greek tragedies, such as Oedipus written by Sophicles. Nothing because they were not real. They did all kind of god stuff for the Greeks like , they provide food and more of that stuff ! Answer number two: The Greek gods had a ubiquitous effect on history, not only Greek, but all of western civilization. Their impact on Christianity cannot be minimized. The virgin birth, for example, comes straight from stories about Perseus and Dionysius. The whole god-man concept of Chalcedonian Christology would not have been possible without the demi-god status of Hercules, Achilles, and the heroes of Greek story. The "dual nature" of Jesus is not a Biblical doctrine, it was first expounded at the church councils of the 4th century, and is based more on Greek myth than on Jewish doctrine. The doctrine of the trinity has only the sketchiest support in scripture, but is present in the Roman view of Mars-Jupiter-Quirinus as well as the Greek view of the tripartite moon: Selena-Artemis-Hekate. The Jewish view of redemption is based on God honoring the sacrifice of an innocent by sparing the congregation of Israel. See the story of Eleazar in 2 Maccabees. God counted the martyrdom of the innocent Eleazar and his six brothers as a sacrifice to impute righteousness to the congragation of Israel. This is substantially different from the eventual Christian doctrine of joining with the deity and becoming righteous by particpating in god's death. The Christian view of redemption comes from the Greek gods. Dionysus, Persephone and Adonis became mystery cults at places like Eleusis, Byblos and Delphi where the faithful became one with the god through re-enacting his or her life, death and resurrection. Needless to say, the effect that Christianity has had on western civilization is beyond the scope of this answer.
