Longos, pisarz starogrecki końca II w., autor pastoralnego romansu „Dafnis i Chloe” żył w epoce „drugiej sofistyki”. Jego stosunek do religii i wiary dość poważny: wiara w istnienie bogów i pietyzm wobec kultu bóstwa autentyczne, a obrazy bogów i opowiadania o cudach przez nich tworzone, nie stanowiły dodatku do opowieści fabularnych, a ważną ich część. Tak samo należy rozpatrywać poświęcenie romansu Erosowi, Nimfom i Panowi. Zdaniem autorki, kwestia stosowania elementów mitycznych w romansie Longosa pozostaje aktualna.

Longus, the ancient Greek writer of the end of the second century, who wrote the pastoral novel „Daphnis and Chloe”, lived in the epoch of the „second sophistry”, when artistic and moral values were actively overvalued, in the epoch, when vision and treatment of religion was changed and rural gods, Pan and Nymphs, were honoured only as a tradition and mainly among villagers. Longus’ attitude toward religion and beliefs was serious enough: faith in gods’ existence and worship to the cult of deity were real for him, and images of gods and narrations about wonders, which they create, were not just an addi-tion to artistic narrative, but an important part of it. Moreover, there is a necessity to ex-amine the dedication of the novel as a gift to Eros, Nymphs and Pan. We consider the elements of myth as not an artistic reception, but as an important component of the writer’s idiostyle, his world outlook. A question about using mythical elements in the Lon-gus’ novel, the subject of our scientific research, is considered to be actual.
