"Verily, the moon is bright
Merrily, I rejoice the sight
Scarily, I will re-form
Hairily, I am reborn"-Helen, Jan 2012
In mythology, folklore and speculative fiction, shapeshifting is the ability of a being or creature to completely transform its physical form or shape.This is usually achieved through an inherent ability of a mythological creature, divine intervention, or the use of magic.
The most common form of shapeshifting myths is that of therianthropy, which is the transformation of a human being into an animal or conversely, of an animal into human form.
Other terms for shapeshifters include metamorph, skin-
walker, and mimic.
Ancient stories tell of men who turn into creatures who prey on humans and animals alike. Early Greek history provides examples of werewolf myths which may be linked with Olympian religious traditions. For example, one area rich in wolf mystique was Arcadia where a cult of the Wolf-Zeus existed.This belief existed among the Romans as well.Their version was of a versipellis or turnskin and was a person who, through the use of magic, could turn into a wolf.
Shapeshifting in mythology and anthropology generally refers to the alteration of physical appearance from that of a human to that of another species. Lycanthropy, the transformation of a human into a wolf (or werewolf), is probably the best known form of therianthropy, followed by cynanthropy (transformation into a dog). 🐺
