Course content

Minoan Crete was a rich, varied and complex culture whose achievements in every aspect of life have been studied and are still being studied worldwide. In this course, we aim to further understand the significance of the Minoan Rituals and their relation to the rituals of modern civilizations. The ritual is a total of practices that have a spiritual and/or indicative character. It is also considered as the performance of an act with formality and solemnity. The content of this online course gives us the chance to meet a world in which gods, goddesses, monsters, magic and religious symbolism play a significant role. Think of how many similar rituals, with a formal substance, operate as milestones in our lives nowadays. All of the above will be analyzed further and in detail in this online course part of the Arts and Culture category. After successfully completing the lessons, the participant will receive a training certificate while acquiring a magnificent one time experience.
