An amazing showing.

  1. In the story of Jason and the Argonauts, Medea is a non hellenistic sorceress (traditional Hellenists didn't practice spellcraft but existed with people from cultures that do) she assists the gods by helping jason and killing a king; and is watched over by the gods during their journey. By this example we can surmise the gods watch over everyone regardless of their practices and origins.

  2. She has been synchronized with Venus, Inanna, ishtar, Astarte, Hathor, Tanit, and possibly Dione. So she was more central in earlier times as a war and justice goddess as well as a love and fertility goddess. The first version of the shepard's story Jesus/Adonis/Dumuzid comes from the goddess loving the shepard. Lakshmi and Tantra in hinduism may originate in the summerian goddess Inanna which is synchronized with aphrodite. Regardless look up, Minoan Crete, cyrpus, Troy, Phoenicians, carthage, Sargon of akad, and babylon, as well as Ptolemic egypt on duckduckgo to get a grasp of her full myths.

  3. In the myth of the three doves two priestess where brought overseas(pheonecia/egypt) by slavers and they became 2 of the three oracles at Dodona. Originally it was a cult of Dione, Dione was a counterpart to Dios in early bronze age greece. So she used to fulfill the "Hera" role, however that changed overtime. Regardless the 3 oracles at Dodona synchronized Dione(her mother) with Aphrodite at Dodona but only in this instance. Regardless, Aphrodite came from the pheonecian god astarte, which comes from ishtar, who is also Inanna; they were both later synchronized and became hathor(egypt), tanit(egypt,pheonecia), aphrodite and venus. It's a big circle.

  4. I think the myths point toward lesbian and/or personal feminine acceptance, though I perceive the gods as almost above our notions of sexuality. I really feel they're higher entities.

  5. could be selene, aphrodite ourania, or aphrodite pandemos

  6. I believe the tribes should have a traditional monarch like ruler that has a top place within the government, so yes, but technically no.

  7. The people who I've known to have done so have generally considered themselves "Gnostic". I believe the term Gnosticism fits, Paganism no.

  8. Nah I worship Freyja, and Venus on the same altar. There's so much lost history it's also hard to tell if some gods are the same or not, hence debates over synchronisms. I'm both heathen and hellenist by heritage, we don't live in the iron age most people on this planet are of mixed heritage compared to 2000 years ago. It's also good to know hellenists tend to be more open to synchronization of gods, and adoption of other cultures and races, due to the religion taking up the expanse of great Britain to Afghanistan.

  9. When I give offerings I view it as also giving to the earth and animals, dryads and Naiads. It can be viewed that the gods have other spirits creatures to watch over, so perhaps she wanted the critter to eat it?

  10. I've personally found using things that look more "christian" I:E hellenic to mock roman catholism, or maybe use babylonian/summerian items help. My abrahamic family members tend to judge things based more on physical appearance than actual knowledge. Regardless as a native individual, i feel christianity has destroyed most other religions and the core view points are too different to have an agreeable theological conversation. It really does boil down to agreeing to disagree and not talking about it, however as a younger individual it might be easier to just use altar items that blend in with abrahamic faiths for the time being or translate the churches items into your own with intentions. That's partially how modern pagan practices survived the catholic church. Also smoke/incense and tea readings existed before tarrot and function similarly, that could work

  11. I wish this form of building would just become standard again, it fits in with nature so much better than the modernist buildings now.

  12. Hermes patron god of healing, jokes and dongs is proud. Bless the mighty dong. It's a blessing.

  13. He likes his followers to be silly and educated. Also he was important for growing and crafting things. Grapes and strawberries/the strawberry tree are attributed to him, as well as lemongrass. It's also important to note some of the oldest phallic jokes are from Hermes, he's silly.

  14. Do you have any sources about the phallic jokes part? My husband would love that considering we both make them often!

  15. A greek "herm" is a small worship statue basically shaped like one, the most common was that of hermes along trade routes, and due to his association with thieves and traders his altars and areas were usually marked with some sort of phallic joke or symbolism. While they had a different concept of nudity back then it would be entirely wrong to say, putting a massive dong at eye height protruding out of a hermes statue while someone is praying at an altar is anything but a joke on the altar. Seriously look up half the phallic statues in ancient greece, yes they are sacred but they're also supposed to be silly. Regardless "herms" as well as various other odd phallic statues along trade routes have always pointed travelers/traders to sanctuary. And the caduceus, could also be associated with a phallus as it's concept was used to improve crops and health. This is why you'll see random statues of giant dongs throughout greece, turkey and summeria. I can't find any one specific link I'm Sorry. Key terms: Herm, Hermes Herm, Hermes altar, herma of pan pottery, ancient phallus sculptures. Their version of dick jokes was mostly drawing/putting dicks everywhere. The first phallus jokes. Follow the ancient dongs statues, hermes will give you knowledge

  16. The gods are comfortable with their own imperfections and negative emotions, so they are always content. They still get the spectrum of human emotions, but are simply content and happy whilst doing so because each god is SUPPOSED to be their full perfectly flawed selves. They don't feel the personal ego judgment so it's easy living for them. That's my take anyways

  17. Bro i didn't even see this. I try to reply to everything for spirtual reasons, sorry I'm late. Apollos' son Asklepios is the medicine god, Apollo was seen as a Solar diety during the ionian era, and the Julian era of hellenism which most modern hellenist refrence. Orphic hellenists also view appollo as a symbol of sol invictus in their view of reincarnation. The ruins of Miletus or Carlos are good examples of apollo/artemis worship. Due to Possible connection with bronze age cultures in anatolia, many hellenists see artemis and apollo as a progression of utu and ishtar. Lilith comes from Lamashtu which would steal young children, these became known as lilith spirits later, which then over syncronized with ishtar/inanna. I currently can't find the myth were inanna sent a hunter to kill Lamashtu, so I might be wrong there. Regardless I was completely wrong about Bal and have since gotten into my celtic roots due to realizing this, I'm actually Glad you posted. I come to this reddit to learn

  18. Grape vines are a staple of Dionysus, also purple

  19. Hermaphroditus is what you're looking for, the child of Venus and hermes

  20. The scythians did human sacrifice, and the bronze age empires were known for crucifying their enemies if that could be counted. But the only real possible evidence of child sacrifice is Carthage and the pheonicians in North Africa and possibly cyprus/tyre. That would explain why the greeks/romans/summerians generally fought them.

  21. Enlil is the storm god of justice and law, most equate him to the old testament god from the bible. Enki his brother is a Hermes like character that helps mankind with knowledge, and aids with water, wells, and rivers, and heals people occasionally. He could loosely be equated to archangel Raphael. Jesus could be Dumuzid the shepard.

  22. Certain sects like orphism has virtues and vegetarian diets, but Hellenism refers to the broader worship which dates through countless cultures and traditions. So there is no one set of tenants to follow.

  23. Later stages of Roman Hellenism adopted orphism as well as every other thing mentioned. It's more reincarnation/Elysium centered.

  24. Bloodborne lore isn't based on pagan religions, it's based on H.P. Lovecraft lore. Lovecraft wasn't into paganism, he was a shut-in who wrote horror stories stemming from his personal fears of the unknown.

  25. Oedon and many of the runes are things used within pagan cultures, theres enough to imply both lovecraft and early pre abrahamic religions. Also lovecraft wrote egyptian fan fiction, he was aware of history.

  26. I honestly posted to hear everyone opinions because I like to hear if I'm off or not. Soulsborne games take groups of people to figure things out, wasn't trying poop on your rainbow guys.

  27. Gods derive power and vitality from worshippers. This means mother Innana found a way to survive under a different name. Maybe other Sumerian Gods also found similar ways to survive. We just need to discover their identity in this era.

  28. Utu would most likely be Vishnu, and Enki either Shiva or elephant bro.
