Pegasus


This wiki-page is created to gather information and combine our efforts to make the wiki-page Pegasus be the best page about pegasus there is on the entire Internet.

See the writing rules on Elftown Creature Marathon. Help correcting each others' texts, but if you want to do big changes, it's often better to copy the page to a suggestion-page, or ask first. If you create a new page like pegasus anatomy name it exactly like that, and not something like "Heddas peg ana". It will of course be replaced if someone comes up with a better page or adds to your page, but please don't kill them for it ;)

So if you have any kind of text, image, link or anything that can help, please add it here or make a comment about it! People who help out a lot will be considered part of the work and will get credited on the best pegasus-page on the Internet when we're done with it. And we'll also select the best one out of us (Except the judges [Hedda] and [xido] that can't win, but we'll help as much as we can and we'll vote).

And remember: It's not just you against the rest of the team. It's also Elftown against the world!

The crew

Judges: [Hedda], [xido]
Writers: [Elisha Kelly]

2006-11-05 [Hedda]: No comments yet? Lazy Elftowners! It's many minutes since I announced this project! ;)

2006-11-05 [Ariandra]: Count me in! This is something that I studied with our son when I homeschooled him last year! I'll have to dig out our resources though since we were packed for a move. 

2006-11-05 [Elisha Kelly]: looks kinda interesting... :P

2006-11-05 [Elisha Kelly]: http://www.winshop.com.au/annew/Pegasus.html ----> this is mainly about the constellation, but it also contains The history of pegasus :)

2006-11-05 [stevedoyle]: I wrote a couple of poems that you can have if you want them. Pegasus - SGD and The Birth of Pegasus - SGD In a comment on the second one, I explain the legend behind the birth.

2006-11-05 [Hedda]: Thanks [Elisha Kelly] and [stevedoyle]!

2006-11-05 [Elisha Kelly]: your welcome :)

2006-11-06 [5thwitch]: I'm searching for pegasus rapresentation in classic art!

2006-11-07 [Sylvia Rote]: How about how pegasus in the movies? Such as "Clash of the Titans". I actually know that movie and the Greek myth it is based on by heart, and Pegasus was an important aspect of it. Though the movie does not follow the Greek myth, of course.

2006-11-07 [Hedda]: [Sylvia Rote]: Write something on pegasus in movies? If you know the names of the movies, you can give links to their pages on www.imdb.com too.

2006-11-07 [Sylvia Rote]: Should I post just one link on the movies page?

2006-11-07 [Hedda]: What do you mean? Post as many movies as you can. Or add an alternative URL for the movie too.

2006-11-07 [Sylvia Rote]: Well I mean more than one link for the same movie, becuase I know two good sites for movie information and reviews.

2006-11-07 [Guardian]: We studied the Pegasus from Edith Hamilton's Mythology. According to legend, Pegasus was born when Perseus beheaded Medusa. Bellerophon tamed Pegasus to serve as his steed during his travels, which include his famous slaying of the Chimaera. When he tried to fly Pegasus to Mount Olympus he was taken off Pegasus by Zeus. Pegasus continued on and made it to Mount Olympus, where he would remain as a carrier for Zeus' thunderbolts. Other myths say that Pegasus threw Bellerophan off and flew into the skies to become a constellation. --> Would this go in classic literature?
