Transcript

  • 1. Aphrodite Created by Abigail Johnson And Alexandra Reep
  • 2. There are two theories of Aphrodite’s birth:
    • One theory is that she is the daughter Zeus and Dione.
    • Another theory is that she was born from sea foam.
    • She is married to Hephaestus, but is also associated with Ares. She is often seen dressed for battle, as if going with him.
    • She gave birth to Eros, a cupid-like figure.
  • 3. Offerings and Significance:
    • The Greeks offered flowers and incense in her honor. They also sacrificed doves and celebrated her with a colt. Greeks worshipped her when they wanted success in love or beauty.
  • 4. Venus/ Urania /Aphrodite
    • Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, and pure, spiritual love. She is this because of her beautiful characteristics. Aphrodite is represented by a dove, swan, or sparrow because of their beauty, loveliness, and gracefulness. She is known for being stunningly beautiful and magnificent.
  • 5. Personality
    • Aphrodite is exceedingly beautiful, but can be slightly stuck up on occasion. Nobody could blame her because of her gorgeousness. She was complemented often, and it made her a bit egotistical.
  • 6. Aphrodite and the Trojan Prince
    • One day, the Trojan Prince, Paris, was asked to judge which of the three Olympian goddesses were the most beautiful. Hera and Athena had hoped to bribe him with power and victory in battle, but Aphrodite offered him the love of the most beautiful woman in the world, so he chose her. Hera and Athena were against him and their argument began the Trojan War, but Aphrodite remained loyal to him throughout the war.
