Transcript of Minos, Pasiphae and the Minotaur

Minos, Pasiphae and the Minotaur By Kate Nickley Zeus Minos of Crete Poseidon: God of the seas The GREat white Bull Pasiphae and Daedalus The Minotaur Daedalus' Labyrinth Ariadne And Theseus The End Scarifices from Athens :O BUT MINOS keeps the Bull! Punishment... Note: In some versions
of the myth Minos "proves"
his authority over Crete by
asking Poseidon to send the
Bull, then defies Poseidon. Some versions show Theseus asking his father to be sent, some show Theseus as just being chosen as one of the sacrifices To the Greeks, the Minotaur
becomes the idealistic Monster,
there to be defeated... With the slaying of the Minotaur, Theseus becomes yet another example of a fearless and brave Hero to the Greeks. The whole saga of the Minotaur roots back to one man's decision to defy the Gods when he keeps the great bull. When one does as they are supposed to do a lot of trouble can be spared in the long run. kayrtyerh
