Myths and Legends: Journeys Through Time
The phoenix mythology spans at least 9 possibly 10 different cultures. Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Arabic, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Native America, Russian and possibly the Phoenician/Canaanite cultures all have their respective names and origins for the phoenix. One thing that all 9-10 mythologies do have in common is that when the phoenix is at the end of it’s life cycle, it builds a nest, settles into the nest and bursts into flame, being reborn from the ashes.
