I was going to ask a mythology question (about the ancient Romans) on history.stackexhange, but then I looked at their FAQ:

It is not [for questions] about:


  • Mythology

Where would be the proper place to ask that? Is there an appropriate SE site?

    Probably the Christianity site

    @random I don't think that would work...

  • @random I meant the Roman religion, as in Jupiter and Neptune, as opposed to Roman Catholic.

  • Wow, what an unexpected thing to find in their FAQ. I definitely would have assumed that mythology would be on topic there. I mean, you have to draw the line somewhere on what is history, but mythology seems like a good candidate for inclusion. I'm sure there was a Meta post about it at some point. Apr 4, 2013 at 2:57
  • @CodyGray I searched MetaSO for mythology and nothing came up relevant, even that.

    You could ask on the Philosophy.SE Meta whether they'd be interested in such questions. I couldn't make that call. Apr 4, 2013 at 2:59

    Ah, I meant the History site meta. Is it appropriate to ask questions about mythology here? Steve's comment makes the most sense to me. For example, it's almost impossible to separate medieval Scandinavian history from Norse mythology. Apr 4, 2013 at 3:00
  • I am +1 for Philosophy.SE, though ask on Meta first to make sure.

  • I was hoping to get it included in the Latin Language & Usage proposal.

There is now a Mythology.SE, currently in private beta. A Community Manager has notified us (the users there) that we can expect to enter public beta within the next week, pending review by the team. now in public beta!

We do indeed have a tag, with a decent amount of questions. We also have a tag for questions about Greek mythology; it is very popular.

For more information, check out the Area 51 stats. You can also see Commitment and Definition information there.
