Moved from article page[edit]

                               ==THE GOLDEN AGE==

The Golden Age, beginning with and taking place during the rule of Chronos. Men is living among the gods, and freely mingled with them. Peace and harmony prevailed during this age. Humans did not grow old, but died peacefully. Spring was eternal and people were fed on acorns from a great oak as well as wild fruits and honey that dripped from the trees. This race eventually died out.

Did some cleaning up.[edit]

Worked on the Hesiod and Ovid sections. Maybe Ovid's four ages should be bulked up, but I didn't want to be repetitive. Also added the section titles to help break down the topic more clearly.Ifnkovhg 03:42, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

The Hesiod five ages section only lists four. What's missing? P.M.Lawrence. (talk) 03:13, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Hindu section, do they mean Brahma?[edit]

Do they mean this Brahma in the Hindu Vedic section: ? If so, one might lay the link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by R U Bn (talkcontribs) 22:28, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Hindu-Vedic section[edit]

Why does the "Hindu-Vedic" section list the yugas as associated with the four metals of the Greek tradition? As far as I know, there is no link between the yugas and any metals. The yugas are associated with certain colors instead. [1]

Satya-yuga white
Treta-yuga red
Dvapara-yuga blackish (krsna)
Kali-yuga yellow

Ages of Man in other cultures (Judeo-Christian)[edit]

I have never heard of the Brass Age; I was sure that the third age in this scenario was of bronze. But in the third paragraph:

After that empire will come a third one of brass, followed in turn by the fourth empire of crushing iron, that crushes all others.

The archeological counterpart to the mythological Brass Age may refer to an explosion in development of the doorknob.

From Gold to Silver[edit]

Yeah in the Golden Age Kronus's name is spelled K-R-O-N-U-S however in the Silver age is name is spelled C-R-O-N-U-S. Although, I am aware you can spell his name either way you should try to create a consistency in the article and therefore spell his name one way or the other or (preferably) you could mention in your article in parentheses that there are two different ways of spelling Kronus's name for instance: The greek god Kronus (or "Cronus") ate his children to avoid the fullfillment of the prophecy." Please make this change. Thank you.-James Pandora Adams —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:43, 10 April 2011 (UTC)


A search for "Brazen Age" brought me here, but there's no mention of the term on this page. Strange :) Malick78 (talk) 19:23, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
