“#We have to be careful how we use history and myth to understand one another. In this context I would define a myth as a story that a group of people believe for a long time despite massive evidence that it is not actually true; the spirit of myth is the spirit of Oz: Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. […] we need to use history to understand myth—that is, we need to understand why such a text was composed and retold many times […] But we cannot use the myth to reconstruct the actual history behind the text; we cannot say that the text is evidence. […] Such myths reveal to us the history of sentiments rather than events; motivations rather than movements.” (W. D. p. 23).
