I have recently been re-reading the Iliad and delving into articles regarding the virtues/code of Homeric heroes. All the while I’m starting to see some form of broad connections between the heroes of Homer’s world and those of other cultures, such as Scandinavian Vikings and Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. I would throw medieval knights into the mix, but I don’t believe their value systems are entirely congruent with those of Homeric heroes. What other cultures have you noticed that might share similar ideals of individualistic warriors?
