Mythology consists of the word “Mythologia” which is the combination
of Greek “Mythos” (myth) and “Logos” (speaking, lecturing). Myth is used in the
meaning of myths that have displayed differences in time and have been conveyed to
the next generations via narrative, and it is the name given to the accumulation which
the communities living in ancient times produced about religions, gods, heroes, and
invisible creatures.
In connection with the breaking a cultural or religious paradigm, it is seen that myths
attain a place for them in pragmatic sense. Together with the rise of Christianity,
while entry of various pagan mythological objects into this religion create an example
for religious break in medieval ages, in modern times, equivalent of this for our
ordinary daily life can be festivals full of mythological figures, celebrations of holly
festivals, literary works or visual culture tools among which cinema comes first. It is
seen that cultural and religious objects as well can change into mythological objects
and, in time, the material originating from literary work or visual culture elements
can achieve mythological properties. The first case we have mentioned means that
the narrative stemming from mythology is taking pragmatic shape and the second
one is transformation into mythology which becomes a fiction later.
In this declaration, moving from the transfer of the fictional texts filled with
particularly extraordinary characters, places and events, we will in fact try to explain
the truth that the sensation stemming from religious belief will carry on its presence
until the end of history.
