A Comparative Study of the Greek Gods and Yoruba their Counterparts

The most-striking characteristic of Greek religion was the belief in a multiplicity of anthropomorphic deities under one supreme god. Priests simply looked after cults; they did not constitute a clergy, and there were no sacred books.

In this material, you will learn the significant difference between the gods and goddesses in the Greek mythology and that of the Yoruba. While certain duties and roles were almost exclusive to each Greek gods in the Greek pantheon (because we have few cases whereby two gods performed closely similar function e.g. Ares and Athena were regarded as gods of war), the Yoruba gods seem to have conflict of duties in the sense that a god or more seem to perform similar functions.
