  Mythography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mythography is the study of the study of myths (the study of myths being mythology), as well, and so in examining how mythology has been studied, one can see the differences and similarities readily, as evidenced by Dr. William Doty's MYTHOGRAPHY: THE STUDY OF MYTHS AND RITUALS.
Besides the anthropologist's reason — better understanding of a particular culture in its own terms, that is, for the purposes of cultural anthropology — there are very varied reasons behind the interest of the mythographer.
Its character Casaubon was involved in such a project in the mid-nineteenth century.

 Greek mythology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The general issues in studying myths are discussed in the mythography article.
In other cases, close parallels in character and function suggest a common heritage, yet lack of linguistic evidence makes it difficult to prove, as in the case of the Greek Moirae and the Norns of Norse mythology.
Archaeology and mythography, on the other hand, has revealed that the Greeks were inspired by some of the civilizations of Asia Minor and the Near East.

Further, it may be a misjudgment to evaluate the two approaches solely by their psychological tenets because sandtray work is equally based in the spiritual and the mythic.
I hypothesize that each method can claim its merits because of its mythography, the underlying belief structures about mythic thought that influence: how clinical data is acquired, how differences and similarities are approached, and whether client issues as mythic themes are regarded primarily as affective, rational, or imaginal (Downing, 1999).
In summary, Sandplay's mythography views the client as a primitive Other: the patient's ego is inferior to the therapist, for it is unable to safely tolerate content of its own mythic material.

 Medieval Mythography, Volume 2 - From the School of Chartres to the Court at Avignon, 1177-1350 - by Jane Chance- A new ...
The second volume in Jane Chance’s study of the history of medieval mythography from the 5th through the 15th centuries focuses on the time period in Western Europe between the School of Chartres and the papal court at Avignon.
This examination of historical and philosophical developments in the story of mythography reflects the ever-increasing importance of the subjectivity of the commentator.
Jane Chance is professor of English at Rice University and author of Medieval Mythography, Volume 1: From Roman North Africa to the School of Chartres, AD 433-1177 (winner of the 1994 South Central Modern Language Association Book Prize) and of 13 other books and collections.

So when I came up with the concept of Mythography, I was easily able to enlist some top flight people to contribute to the book, though the work was done purely on speculation.
The story of Strange Attractors is in many ways the story of her growth from an ineffectual recluse, to a person who takes charge of her destiny.
Mythography is definitely geared towards the fantasy audience.

 Mythography Creations by Jeff Knowles Photography
And "Mythography" is literally the artistic representation of mythical subjects.
The term seems to describe the idea I have behind this style: creation of mythical, storytelling scenes using a blend of imagination and the real world -- images that are at once artistic, whimsical, and in a sense, believable.
Mythography Creations is about weaving together reality and fantasy.

I call this the "mythography of rape." The mythography of rape is the dominant hegemony's story of rape and like most stories in mainstream culture, it is fictional.
Interestingly enough, the mythography of rape tends to blame victims, cast doubt on the verity of victims' reports, and in some ways exonerate rapists by suggesting that victims bring rape on themselves through their actions or dress.
The mythography of rape serves to benefit rapists and men in general; giving them the benefit of the doubt in rape cases.

Mythography is the process by which myths (stories) become graphed (textualized).
We will explore this process in its full range, from ancient writing systems to the tape-recorder, comparing the works of such mythographers as playwrights, poets, novelists, and compilers of sacred books, on the one hand, and those of folklorists, linguists, and ethnographers, on the other.
Term papers may be based either on sound recordings or on narratives that have already been textualized by means of writing.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2005.09.20
A serious, book-length study of mythography has long been a desideratum, and the lack of one is felt even more keenly now that there is so much excellent work on individual mythographers.
This book, despite its general title, does not fill that gap because Cameron is uninterested in the main surviving mythographers or those who made interpretation as opposed to simple narration a major part of their work.
Because Cameron's whole concern has been with imperial (and indirectly Hellenistic) mythography, there is the rather large and regrettable absence of any discussion of earlier mythography, a genre (to use a simple word for such a remarkably diverse kind of writing) that arose practically immediately after the first prose literature.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2002.06.02
Jacoby included all of Greek historiography in its broadest sense, including everything from ethnography to geography to mythography, and arranged the fragments not chronologically but rather "according to their place in the evolution of historiography" (xxix).
Hellanicus of Lesbos, another author of major significance, continued the tradition of Ionian mythography begun by Hecataeus, and influenced both Herodotus and Thucydides (though the latter apparently didn't think much of him).
Following the fragments of the twenty-nine authors are several indexes, including sources for the testimonia, words found in the fragments, and proper names.

 A Trinket's Tale: Thieving in your underwear isn't all that, not even in a Typical Fantasy Environment.
Drawn in April, 1998, A Trinket's Tale was intended as a parody of and response to a comic I read in the fantasy comics magazine Mythography in the late 1990s.
That comic, which shall remain nameless but has since been republished online, was a mess of poorly thought out and hackneyed ideas, only redeemed somewhat by the slick execution.
I considered sending A Trinket's Tale to Mythography but I thought it wasn't too great itself - the parody didn't cut to the heart of the matter and, more damningly for the kind of magazine that Mythography was, the art was rough.

 Paraiyars Ellaiyamman as an Iconic Symbol of Collective Resistance and Emancipatory Mythography
The following mythography which encapsulates the origins of Ellaiyamman may be a good example It is a version that was sung to me by a Paraiyar religious functionary from Malaipallaiyam.
The process of construing emancipatory mythographies involves both an interaction with an appropriation of forms from the dominant group and a subtle rejection of it in order to reclaim for the Paraiyars their own human identity and rationale for existence.
  This notion of weaving an alternate mythography, as a way by which peoples deny and defy the construction of unitary and universalizable history, is expressed by Ashis Nandy in his interpretation of how the victims of colonization express their own historical perspectives in the midst of the dominant Western colonial discursive practice.

Shangri-La, the Bermuda Triangle, Transylvania, the Golden Triangle—far-flung in popular conception, these anomalous places nonetheless occupy the same mysterious zone, a mythography of unruly cartographic practices.
And because this mythography becomes associated with a particular area of the earth’s surface, it may well suggest an alternative means of mapping the world, dissociated from the dominant geographical paradigms of nation-state, economic region, and the global/local marketing nexus.
Large-scale nonnational geographical spaces that find their genesis in popular feeling, mystery, and belief, these four sites provide Brett Neilson with the basis not only for rethinking the current global reorganization of space and time but also for questioning the dominant narrative by which globalization marks the victory of capitalism.

A myth is a story that is sacred to a group of people; to those people, the story is true and concerns foundational events – from the origin and organization of the cosmos to the origin and organization of fundamental human institutions (examples: kingship, gender roles).

Mythography implies a process of "becoming real" that incorporates stories, tropes, things and spaces in ways that I find very useful; it allows us to trace a literary technology or linguistic practice through its expression in material objects, social practices, and spaces.

No detailed narratological study of mythography has been undertaken, perhaps because to much modern taste the style seems jejune or uninteresting compared to the prose of the great historians.
Yet it was an instrument created for a particular purpose, to which it was ideally suited.
In attempting to offer explanations for stylistic choices, one soon finds that possible answers lead directly to issues of audience, occasion, self-conception, and (ultimately) the attitude of mythography to mythology.
