These 10 animal facts will amaze you A golden age is a time in a specific culture when cultural advancements are at their highest point. For example, many refer to the Golden Age of Classical Greece as a time in the 5th century BCE when literature, drama, philosophyart and politics were most inspired.
With the exception of the Heroic Age, each succeeding age was worse than the one that went before. Hesiod maintains that Golden era the Golden Age, before the invention of the arts, the earth produced food in such abundance that there was no need for agriculture: When they died, it was as though they were overcome with sleep, and they had all good things; for the fruitful earth unforced bare them fruit abundantly and without stint.
They dwelt in ease and peace. Plato in his Cratylus referred to an age of golden men and also at some length on Ages of Man from Hesiod's Works and Days. The Roman poet Ovid simplified the concept by reducing the number of Ages to four: Gold, Bronze, Silver, and Iron.
Ovid's poetry, known to schoolboys from Antiquity through the Middle Ages and beyond,[ citation needed ] was likely a prime source for the transmission of the myth of the Golden Age during the period when Western Europe had lost direct contact with Greek literature.
In Hesiod's version, the Golden Age ended when the Titan Prometheus conferred on mankind the gift of fire and all the other arts. For this, Zeus punished Prometheus by chaining him to a rock in the Caucasuswhere an eagle eternally ate at his liver. The gods sent the beautiful maiden Pandora to Prometheus's brother Epimetheus.
The gods had entrusted Pandora with a box that she was forbidden to open; however, her uncontrollable curiosity got the better of her and she opened the box, thereby unleashing all manner of evil into the world. The Orphic schoola mystery cult Golden era originated in Thrace and spread to Greece in the 5th century BCE, held similar beliefs about the early days of man, likewise denominating the ages with metals.
In common with the many other mystery cults prevalent in the Graeco-Roman world and their Indo-European religious antecedentsthe world view of Orphism was cyclical. Initiation into its secret rites, together with ascetic practices, was supposed to guarantee the individual's soul eventual release from the grievous circle of mortality and also communion with god s.
Orphics sometimes identified the Golden Age with the era of the god Phaneswho was regent over the Olympus before Cronus. In classical mythology however, the Golden Age was associated with the reign of Saturn.
In the 5th century BCE, the philosopher Empedocleslike Hesiod before him, emphasized the idea of primordial innocence and harmony in all of nature, including human society, from which he maintained there had been a steady deterioration until the present.
Arcadia[ edit ] A tradition arose in Greece that the site of the original Golden Age had been Arcadiaan impoverished rural area of Greece where the herdsmen still lived on acorns and where the goat-footed god Pan had his home among the poplars on Mount Maenalus. However, in the 3rd century BCE, the Greek poet, Theocrituswriting in Alexandriaset his pastoral poetry in on the lushly fertile island of Sicily, where he had been born.
The protagonist of Theocritus's first Idyllthe goat herder, Daphnisis taught to play the Syrinx panpipes by Pan himself.

The Golden Age in Rome: Virgil and Ovid[ edit ] Writing in Latin during the turbulent period of revolutionary change at the end of the Roman Republic roughly between 44 and 38 BCEthe poet Virgil moved the setting for his pastoral imitations of Theocritus back to an idealized Arcadia in Greece, thus initiating a rich and resonant tradition in subsequent European literature.
Virgil, moreover, introduced into his poetry the element of political allegory, which had been largely absent in Theocritus, even intimating in his fourth Eclogue that a new Golden Age of peace and justice was about to return: Ultima Cumaei venit iam carminis aetas; magnus ab integro saeclorum nascitur ordo: Now the last age by Cumae's Sibyl sung Has come and gone, and the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew: Astraea returns, Returns old Saturn's reign, With a new breed of men sent down from heaven.
Ostensibly about agriculture, the Georgics are in fact a complex allegory about how man's alterations of nature through works are related to good and bad government. Although Virgil does not mention the Golden Age by name in the Georgics, he does refer in them to a time of primitive communism before the reign of Jupiterwhen: Fields knew no taming hand of husbandmen To mark the plain or mete with boundary-line.
Even this was impious; for the common stock They gathered, and the earth of her own will All things more freely, no man bidding, bore.
It is seen again in Ovid 's Metamorphoses 7 CEin which the lost Golden Age is depicted as a place and time when, because nature and reason were harmoniously aligned, men were naturally good: And, with a native bent, did good pursue.
