Philosophical responses to a fb group of devotees who use the name, the teaching and even terminology of Platon, but have no idea of them and they refuse to study and accept them.

In the current article, I have tried to present basic Platonic theories on the subject of piety and the Goddess Hekate, in the most plain and simple way possible. It was written after a period of...

Methexis is a term we see in Platonism. Before reading on methexis, the reader should know the Platonic theory of two worlds, or the theory of Ideas. As this theory has been presented in other articles, we should present a synopsis.

There is a never changing world, which pre-exists and precedes, guides and is the model of the world we live. This is the mental/intelligence world, in...

Charites and Hekate

Kallos (κάλλος) is an Hellenic word meaning something of perfect beauty and good in one. “In ancient Hellas ethics is a part of aesthetics. An action is neither good or bad, it is beautifull or ugly… A prudent action is not just ethical, but also beautiful.” (Platon, Abel, Jeanniere, Editions du Seuil 1994)

Last days, some members of the Covenant of Hekate, press me not to write about things that aren’t pleasant. According to them, when you write what happened and this isn’t a happy story, I degrade the website. When I write against other people’s beliefs, I also degrade the website. This is the opinion we will examine on that blog post.

The Crossroads Witch is based on Mythology,...

Devotees of All Gods

In this category we see people who worship a lot of different Goddesses and when they go online they claim to be devotees of Hekate in a forum of Hekate, of Demeter in a forum of Demeter, of Isis in a forum for the study of the Egyptian religion…...

In September 2017 I wrote the article: The Illusive Goddess in which I examine some cases of false dedication we see in the modern religious community of the Goddess Hekate. I continued to see those cases online. Recently, I have noticed that more devotees take a weird way, worshipping a Goddess they prefer to call Hekate, but She isn’t Hekate, at least, Hekate was...

Last month, I had the chance to meet a sincere devotee of the Goddess, who, like others, came from her country to Hellas, to find the traces of the Goddess and walk in the places She walked in antiquity. We went to some important archaeological sites and later, at night we sat in a local restaurant to eat. Like in antiquity, so as today, we started to discuss on the history, the mysteries and the philosophy of ancient Hellas. At some point I...

There is a phenomenon that I observe and I believe that I want to comment it. When I have enough free time, I take part in discussions related to magical practices and traditions both in English and Greek groups. This is what I see a lot today; people telling each other or me that “you don’t need to read books”. My biggest problem is when people say that they don’t have to read books and they magically gain the knowledge needed from their brain...

This is an invocation to the Goddess Hekate, I wrote one night being very connected with the Goddess. This is a hymn I intented to give it to the COH team that celebrates Deipnon, but this project didn't materialized due to constraints of the administration. So, I present it here in the safe ground of the Crossroads Witch to be used wisely during deipnon.

The neoplatonic current was the main philosophical school of the late antiquity. This philosophical movement begins in the 3rd century A.C. with Plotinos...
