Transcript of Prometheus and Fire

Prometheus and
Fire

Who was Prometheus?
His Interest
Prometheus had an interest in making his own people out of clay. Then, Zeus liked the clay men so much that he decided to make them come to life.
Prometheus' Education
Athena, the Goddess, educated Prometheus about mathematics, astronomy, architecture, navigation, medicine, and metallurgy. After, Prometheus gathered all his knowledge and taught all of it to the humans.
THE FIRE
Zeus then banned fire from all earth and the humans got very cold.
Family Tree
Trick at Mecone
As all men gathered for a special event at Mecone, Prometheus decided to trick Zeus. He tricked Zeus into choosing a pile of bones instead of the nice meat.
Prometheus was one of the titans and he was the cousin of Zeus and Hera.
Prometheus the HERO
Prometheus could not stand to see his people cold, so he went to the sun and took fire for the people and brought it to them.
Zeus Punished Prometheus
Zeus found out about this, and got super mad. Zeus chained Prometheus to a rock on Mount. Caucasus for his punishment.
Everyday an eagle would fly down and eat his liver, but he was immortal, so he never died. This suffering lasted for years.
HERCULES
Finally, Hercules releases Prometheus
