The Darkness within
Lord of the Underworld
In the spirit of Halloween, I decided to write an article about Lord Hades. Due to the fact that Halloween deal with ghouls, ghost, devils, and other demonic creatures.
At the end of the Titan War, the brothers Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades decided to divided the universe by playing lots. Poseidon won the seas, Zeus won the heavens and Hades won the Underworld. This suit Hades just fine. To some he may seem somber, grim god but he really tried to fair and honest god. Being the eldest god and having to live with his siblings's argue over petty things and scheme can anyone wants to be a lone. Hades spent little time with his Olympian siblings, preferring instead to withdraw to his own space and to mind his own business. Unlike his brother Poseidon, Hades has FULL CONTROL of the Underworld. Most of the gods stay clear of Underworld and it ruler Hades. Not even Zeus interferes with the business of the Underworld except the case of Persephone. The gods are immortal beings and they do not want to be involve in the matters of dead and the afterlife.
And surely his divine responsibility is large and grows daily--the management of the Underworld, an underground kingdom wherein lived the spirits of those who had died, those who sleep and dream, and others who, for whatever reason, had been banished from the earth. With his dark, somewhat morbid nature, Hades was undoubtedly well-suited to his career. Nonetheless, at times he was bound to be lonely.
Although Hades stay in the Underworld most of the time, he does visit the land of living for a change scene and love affair or two. On visit he encounter the beautiful Persephone. He went to Zeus for her hand in marriage because Zeus is Persephone's father. Zeus, staying neutral as possible, did not agree for the marriage nor he disagree with the idea of the marriage between Hades and Persephone. Hades forget to tell Demeter, Goddess of Agriculture and Persephone's obsessed mother, about the marriage. Persephone gather flowers on a plain in Sicily. Hades made her his queen and the consequence of the their marriage result in the change seasons.
To the realms of Hades's Kingdom. There are three majority realms and several minority areas.
Tartarus is the lowest region of the world, as far below earth as earth is from heaven. Tartarus is the Greek Hell.it is a dark and dismal place with the wicked suffer eternal punishment. Tartarus scary the hell out everybody including the gods and goddesses.
The Asphodel fields are a limbo existence. it have the most souls in Underworld due to the fact commoners don't do nothing that get in the Elysium Fields.
Elysium Fields is the paradise for the heroes and good people. It is the Greek Heaven. Games are held, music and concert are hold everyday. It is a good time for all who live here.
In his role as “Good Counselor”, Hades is responsible for helping those who had died to make a successful transition into the afterlife, introducing them to the riches of a life lived subjectively and internally, away from the distractions of the external world. Hades teaches us to be quiet at times, listening carefully to the inner voices that direct us to the hidden riches buried deeply within the soul.
Here is some of Hades's souls in Tartarus and the Elysium Field:
Slavery had a long history in the ancient world and was practiced in Ancient Egypt and Greece, as well as Rome. Most slaves during the Roman Empire were foreigners and, unlike in modern times, Roman slavery was not based on race.
Slaves were considered property under Roman law and had no legal personhood. Unlike Roman citizens, they could be subjected to corporal punishment, sexual exploitation (prostitutes were often slaves), torture, and summary execution. The testimony of a slave could not be accepted in a court of law unless the slave was tortured—a practice based on the belief that slaves in a position to be privy to their masters' affairs would be too virtuously loyal to reveal damaging evidence unless coerced (yeah right). Over time, however, slaves gained increased legal protection, including the right to file complaints against their masters.
How did people become Roman Slaves?
People became slaves among the Romans by the following ways:
we from being happily accept in society to being hate and have to fight for
equality? Let start begin in the ancient world work our way to the source of
the problem. The
Ancient Greece "The
noble lover of beauty engages in love wherever he sees excellence and splendid natural
endowment without regard for any difference in physiological detail." -
Plutarch The ancient
Greeks are widely known for their gay exploits. Many people are aware of
Greek homosexual love poetry, the same-sex relations of Greek gods and heroes,
and the gay relationship between Alexander the Great and Hephaestion. It
is important in the beginning to define our vocabulary. The term
’homosexuality’ as it is used and understood today is not mainly applicable to
Greek of ancient times for three reasons: First of all, most Greeks were
bisexual. Second, homosexuality and 'gay' as sexual identities are recent
developments. They were emerged only in the 2Oth Century (our idea of what it
means to be gay…
Out treatment of homosexuality- and not only that- is fundamentally different, from how it was looked upon in the Ancient World, and we fail to grasp its importance and its role in society fully. I would say that ancient societies were a bit more free, at least they didn't consider the gender of your partner such a great deal. But then again this doesn't mean there were no limitations or restrictions, on the contrary. It was mostly a structured thing happening between people belonging to different social classes and age groups. And there were many regional variations as well. Here many culture that document homosexuality in their record. Please note that this NOT a complete list just some.
An ostraca dating from the Ramesside Period have been found
which depict hastily drawn images of homosexual as well as heterosexual sex.
