Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day everyone here is some of the Great Father of the Gods in myths and legend
Anu belongs to the oldest generation of Mesopotamian gods and was originally the supreme deity of the Babylonian pantheon. He was also "Father of the Gods", "Lord of the Constellations, Spirits and Demons", and "Supreme Ruler of the Kingdom of Heaven", where Anu himself wandered the highest Heavenly Regions. He was believed to have the power to judge those who had committed crimes, and to have created the stars as soldiers to destroy the wicked.
Ra is Egyptian sun god can be likened unto the Christian God, as a supreme deity and creator. He created the 8 great gods and the human race came from his tears. As the first god aside from being more powerful than others, he is the Lord of Ma'at and essential to the survival of the universe. Akin to how a plant needs sunlight to live, with Ra as the Sun which feeds the plant; if Ra was to die then the universe, like a sunless plant, will slowly wither and die. Ra is the "heart" of the Egyptian gods and, by extension, the entire universe. Even if the others do not acknowledge it or possibly don't even know it presumably didn't know the consequences or care, without Ra, the rest of the gods would eventually fade into nothingness.
Ahura Mazda is described as the highest deity of worship in Zoroastrianism, along with being the first and most frequently invoked deity in the Yasna. The word Ahura means light and Mazda means wisdom. Thus Ahura Mazda is the lord of light and wisdom. Ahura Mazda is the creator and upholder of Arta (truth). Ahura Mazda is an omniscient (though not omnipotent) god, who would eventually destroy evil. Ahura Mazda, the leader of the Yazatas, appears as a forties Persian man with curly beard, normally wearing pure white robes and a staff, that he uses to guide his people or his cattle. He created all that exists in the World. He’s also the leader of the Amesha Spentas and part of the Ahuric triad.
Zeus is the King of the Gods and God of the Sky, Law and Order. He also ordered the heavenly bodies, made laws, enforced oaths and pronounced oracles. He is the venerable patriarch of the ancient Greeks. As the father of the gods, Zeus sees that each deity performs his or her individual duty, punishes their misdeeds, settles their disputes, and acts towards them on all occasions as their all-knowing counsellor and mighty friend. As the father of men, he takes a paternal interest in the actions and well-being of mortals. He watches over them with tender solicitude, rewarding truth, charity, and uprightness, but severely punishing perjury, cruelty, and want of hospitality. Even the poorest and most forlorn wanderer finds in him a powerful advocate, for he, by a wise and merciful dispensation, ordains that the mighty ones of the earth should succor their distressed and needy brethren.
Jupiter, also called Jove, Latin Iuppiter or Iovis, is the ancient Roman and Italian Supreme Ruler of Heaven & Earth and the Father of the Gods. One of his most ancient epithets is Lucetius (“Light-Bringer”); and later literature has preserved the same idea in such phrases as sub Iove, “under the open sky.” As Jupiter Elicius, he propitiated with a peculiar ritual to send rain in time of drought; as Jupiter Fulgur, he had an altar in the Campus Martius, and all places struck by lightning made his property and guarded from the profane by a circular wall.
Odin is the chief of the Aesir tribe of Norse deities, yet he often ventures far from their kingdom, Asgard, on long, solitary wanderings throughout the cosmos on purely self-interested quests. Odin was the son of Bor and Bestla. He had many other names, including Alfather, signifying his reputation as the father of the gods. He was married to Frigg, who was the mother of Balder, Hod, and Hermod. Odin fathered Thor with a goddess named Jord and Vider with a giantess named Grid.
Obatala is the kindly father of all the Orishas and all humanity. He is also the owner of all heads and the mind. Though it was Olorun who created the universe, it is Obatala who is the creator of the world and humanity. Obatala is the source of all that is pure, wise, peaceful and compassionate. He has a warrior side, though, through which he enforces justice in the world. His color is white, which is often accented with red, purple and other colors to represent different possible paths.
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.
