    For its new exhibition, the Museum of Art and History has chosen to
    to highlight the theme of mythology through works from its three

    The cradle of Greek civilization, myths are much more than just
    beautiful stories to tell. They have at the time the status of "religion
    "They are the bridge between men and the Gods. They are at the origin
    of a history, a language, a common memory and their
    transmissions.

    As early as the 14th century BC, songs were sung in Greek palaces, but
    but it is the Trojan War in 1180 B.C. which gives rise to the first
    heroic epics of which the greatest and most known will be the Illiad
    of Homer.

    The tradition of the myths finds an echo in the Rome in full expansion
    which copied it and appropriated it by modifying in particular the names of the
    the names of the gods. Virgil, author of the Eneide wishes to compete with
    Homer by writing a founding myth for Rome from a hero
    trojan hero.
    Ovid and his Metamorphoses sublimated the Greek heritage.
    The Greco-Roman mythology becomes thus a source of inspiration
    and a subject of predilection for the artists of all times.

    The exhibition Mythomusée proposes to explore this theme through
    the collections of the Museum of Art and History of Lisieux, the Museum of
    Of Orbec and the Castle-Museum of Saint-Germain de Live
