Welcome to episode 12! Our apologies for being more than a little late getting the blog post up, but here it is at last.
This episode, we delve into the mysterious world of Hades. This Greek god of the underworld is also associated with wealth and the Roman god Pluto. There aren’t a lot of myths about Hades but we can learn a lot from his appearance in Homeric Hymn to Demeter.
Homeric Hymn to Demeter 1-23; 334-385.
