The Greek Goddess of the Hunt|
Artemis - Virgin Goddess of the Sun & Moon
Author: Sorita D'Este
Publisher: Avalonia Publishing
Category: Mythology, Goddess, Greek Mysteries, His Level: Intermediate
The goddess Artemis is best known today as a goddess of the hunt and of the new moon, yet to those who worshipped at her ancient temples and sanctuaries
she was far more than just that.
To them she was a powerful and complex goddess whose influence spread far and wide throughout the ancient world. She was worshipped and celebrated as a
goddess of childbirth, women, song, dance and of wild animals. As the daughter of the Titan goddess Leto by the Olympian Father god Zeus, Artemis would prove herself from the moment of her own birth, by assisting her mother with the birth of her own twin brother, Apollo. Zeus, who fathered children with many other goddesses and mortals, had a special affection for Artemis from the start and gave
her all the gifts she asked for and more, making her one of the most powerful of the Olympian goddesses.
Artemis, Virgin Goddess of the Sun & Moon explores the myths, powers and mysteries of this beautiful goddess. It is a thorough study with details of her temples and
sanctuaries, the festivals which were held in honour of her, the roles she fulfilled in the myths, animals which were sacred to her, her relationship with her virgin attendants and other deities, as well as the many titles which
were bestowed upon her.
This groundbreaking book provides the most comprehensive study of this enduring goddess to date.
Author's Notes: This is the first book to focus on just the Goddess Artemis and to bring together the various myths that she played a role in, with details of her temples, ancient sanctuaries and relationships with other Gods and mortals.
It is not a practical book, in that it does not provide the reader with rituals to perform, but there are plenty of information and ideas which can be incorporated into modern Goddess rituals and ceremonies to Artemis.
