Goddesses of the inspiration of literature, science and the arts, they were considered the source of the knowledge, related orally for centuries in the ancient culture, that was contained in poetic lyrics and myths.

According to the Greek Myths, God Zeus bewildered the young woman Mnemosyne and slept with her for nine consecutive nights. The result of their encounter was the Nine Muses, who were similar to everything. Μnemosyne gave the babies to Nymph Eufime and God Apollo. When they grew up they showed their tendency to the arts, taught by God Apollo himself. They were not interested in anything of the regular human everyday life and they wanted to dedicate their lives to the Arts. Apollo brought them to the big and beautiful Mount Elikonas, where the older Temple of Zeus used to be. Ever since, the Muses supported and encouraged creation, enhancing imagination and inspiration of the artists.
According to the Greek Mythology, two Muses invented theory and practice in learning, three Muses invented the musical vibrations in Lyre, four Muses invented the four known dialects in the language – Attica, Ionian, Aeolian and Dorian – and five muses the five human senses. Seven muses invented the seven chords of the lyre, the seven celestial zones, the seven planets and the seven vocals of the Greek Alphabet.

Calliope - muse of epic poetry.
Clio - muse of history.
Erato - muse of love poetry.
Euterpe - muse of music.
Melpomene - muse of tragedy.
Polyhymnia - muse of sacred poetry.
Terpsichore - muse of dance.
Thalia - muse of comedy.
Urania - muse of astronomy.

Not a single volume has been opened.
That’s a great shame. There’s something sad about an unread book.
