For the month April I am posting about Rome from its humble beginning to its mighty empire. According to legend, on or around April 21, 753 B.C., Romulus and his twin brother, Remus, found Rome on the site where they were suckled by a she-wolf as orphaned infants. From here she went from city-state, kingdom, republic to glorious empire and tragic fall.

Women's Month: Wonder Woman

Image
To end Women's month with the one of the greatest superheroines (one of my favorite) named Wonder Woman.Wonder Woman is a superhero from DC comics who has her own series as well as being a regular member of the Justice League, she is an Amazon princess who fights crime with aid from her bulletproof wristbands, magical lasso and superhuman-strength.
Molded from clay by her mother, Queen Hippolyta, Princess Diana was bestowed with powers and abilities from the Greek gods and goddesses, and trained by her fellow Amazons on the paradise island, Themyscira, to use her powers carefully - even though Princess Diana bested them in battle. When Colonel Steve Trevor crash landed on Paradise Island, Hippolyta was instructed by the Goddesses Athena and Aphrodite to hold a contest to see which Amazon would accompany Steve back to "Man's World" to fight evil, because entities were spreading deceit, enmity, contempt, and discord. The contests consisted of one-on-one combat, archer…

Strong Women: Jezebel

Image
For more than two thousand years, Jezebel has been saddled with a reputation as the bad girl of the Bible, the wickedest of women. This ancient queen has been denounced as a murderer, prostitute and enemy of God, and her name has been adopted for lingerie lines and World War II missiles alike. But what if this version of her story, handed down to us through the ages, is merely the one her enemies wanted us to believe? What if Jezebel, far from being a conniving harlot, was, in fact, framed? Jezebel was a powerful Phoenician princess around 900 BCE.  She is the daughter to Ethbaal, King of Tyre in Phoenicia, and wife to Ahab, King of northern Israel. It is said by many archaeologists and scholars that Jezebel was power behind the throne, not her husband and king. She still honored her religion and did not covert to Judaism. She convinced her husband to worship her Phoenician God Baal, God of fertility, rain and the seasons. They had temples erected in his honor which was seen as sinfu…

The Rosy Fingers of Eos

Image
Eos (Roman: Aurora) Mother of the Winds and Stars  Titan/Goddess of the Dawn, Day and Evening Eos is the Titan Goddess of the Dawn. Aurora to the Romans, Goddess of the Dawn. Eos is the daughter of Hyperion and Theia. Eos is young, high spirited and lovely; it is her nature to awaken desire. Her eyelids are snowy, cheeks rosy and head crowned with beautiful, dewy tresses. She has rosy arms and fingers and large, white wings. She wears a radiant crown or a star on her head and is sometimes veiled. Her robes are saffron yellow or dazzling white and purple, and she wears yellow shoes.
Tender-hearted Eos is always eager for young mortal lovers. This is punishment inflicted on her by Aphrodite for having slept with her man, Ares. Like Aphrodite, she brings love to mortals, but is not as easily appeased as the Goddess of Love. So also Dawn brings a renewal of erotic passions and the morning erection. This is why we have morning wood and morning sex.
Eos lives by the streams of Ocean at the…

By Words of the Oracle

Image
“I am the spirit of Delphi, speaker of the prophecies of Phoebus Apollo, slayer of the mighty Python. Approach speaker and ask.” Delphi in ancient Greece was the home of the most famous oracle of ancient times, at the sanctuary of Pythian Apollo. The Oracle of Delphi is Pythia who was a powerful priestess at the Temple of Apollo. People would come from all over to ask the Oracle for her wisdom and the words of Apollo about important matters of public policy to personal affairs. The Oracle would also be consulted before any kind of important decision, including war or the founding of colonies. Priests and priestesses at an oracle spoke on behalf of the gods. The advice from the gods usually so vague that it always seemed to be right. The spirit of the Oracle of Delphi was passed on from maiden to maiden to continue to speak the prophecies of Apollo. People from all over Mediterranean World as far as Lydia, Caria, Rome, and even Egypt would send a representative to consult the Oracle. E…

Happy St. Patrick Day

It’s that time of year again, the time when people start drinking green beer, wearing green clothes, and loving all things Irish, the time when leprechauns come to the forefront of our thoughts. Leprechauns are the wee men folk of the fairy world. A lot of superstition and stereotyping happens around leprechauns. And though we know of them, very well (I mean, everyone knows what a leprechaun is!), there simply are not very many stories about leprechauns. Sure, there are lots of modern stories, particularly children’s stories, but not a whole lot in the realm of folklore. Generally, the leprechaun is mentioned in a story but doesn’t have an entire fairy tale or story about him. Origins The origins of leprechauns are very strange. Leprechauns are usually considered to be a small earth dwelling fairy. They originated, most people think, in Ireland. They were called Cluricaunes, luricanes, lurikeens, and lubberkins. They were not called leprechauns until late seventeenth century. Histor…
