Document Summary

Chapter 5-the twelve olympians: zeus, hera and their children. Hestia, goddess of the hearth and its fire. She rejected both poseidon and apollo and vowed to remain a virgin so like athena and artemis, she is a goddess of chastity. She often gained precedence at banquets and in sacrificial ritual. Number 24 calls on her as the manifestation of the protecting flame of the sacred hearth in a temple and in number. 29, hestia is invoked as the protectress of the hearth in the home; the poet appeals to the god hermes as well since he also protects the house and brings good fortune. Zeus is the glorified image not only of the husband and father but also the lover. He is the wrathful god of justice and virtue, upholding all that is sacred and holy in the moral order of the universe.
