Aithaloeis Theos

A space dedicated to Hephaistos

Porphyry’s Explanation of his Lameness

“Again, the power of fire they called Hephaestus, and have made his image in the form of a man, but put on it a blue cap as a symbol of the revolution of the heavens, because the archetypal and purest form of fire is there. But the fire brought down from heaven to earth is less intense, and wants the strengthening and support which is found in matter: wherefore he is lame, as needing matter to support him.” - Images, Fragment 8

 
So, Hera being the Queen of Heaven, conceived a ‘weaker’ fire and chucked him down to the earth.

71 Adorations

After reading a few posts with adorations to other gods, I couldn’t help but be inspired to do my own list of adorations. I found this to be an uplifting activity and I’m glad I done it. Not only is this a good way to start off my devotional posts on this blog, I also feel like it’s a good starting point for future devotionals.

Take care!
