A cult normally develops around myths and rituals. In this article myth as
phenomenon will be investigated. Different types and categories of myths will be listed, while
research done in the past on myths will also be dealt with. Furthermore, the issue of ritual
accompanying the myth will be briefly discussed. This article wants to promote the notion that one
does not need any particular worldview, be it mythological, orthodox, fundamentalistic, or
biblisistic, to use, understand, and appreciate myths. Even in a postmodern world the value of myths
can be appreciated.
