Transcript of "Aphrodite and green poison"

  1. 1. Aphrodite – the Greek GoddessAphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent isthe goddess Venus. According to Hesiods Theogony, she was born when Cronus cut off Uranussgenitals and threw them into the sea, and she arose from the sea foam (aphros). Accordingto Homers Iliad, she is the daughter of Zeus and Dione.Because of her beauty, other gods feared that their rivalry over her would interrupt the peace amongthem and lead to war, so Zeus married her toHephaestus, who, because of his ugliness anddeformity, was not seen as a threat. Aphrodite had many lovers—both gods, such as Ares, and men,such as Anchises. She played a role in the Eros and Psyche legend, and later was both Adonisslover and his surrogate mother. Many lesser beings were said to be children of Aphrodite.Aphrodite is consistently portrayed, in every image and story, as having had no childhood, andinstead being born as a nubile, infinitely desirable adult. She is often depicted nude. In many of thelater myths, she is portrayed as vain, ill-tempered and easily offended. Although she is married—sheis one of the few gods in the Greek Pantheon who is—she is frequently unfaithful to her husband.Aphrodite was a Saint famous not only because of his incredible, mesmerizing beauty, butalso for his reputation as one of the strongest among the 88 Saints.Green Alcoholic or Non- Alcoholic drinksGreen Jello shots
