Abstract
This essay focuses on the cultural background of the popular manga Saint Seiya, by Masami Kurumada, a worldwide success. It focuses, in particular, on the motifs, both narrative and visual, the author drew from Greek mythology, Buddhist religion and Dante’s Inferno, and on the graphic representation of Greek and Latin architectural works, such as the Parthenon of Athens and the Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion. It concludes by theorizing features of modern popular epic.
