Torches in Hellenic Mythology

One of the most well-known symbols of Goddess Hekate is the torch. Other goddesses and gods have as symbol the torch. Let's see who they are.

Erinnyes

Erinnyes or Evmenides are considered to be daughters of Persephone and Plouton or Ether and Gaia or Gaia and Skotos or Night alone. Erinnyes are called when they are on earth and Evmenides when they are on Hades. They were three in number: Alekto, Tisifone and Megaira. They were leaving next to the entrance of Tartaros. They were avenging and revengeful goddesses. They were tough, rigid and adamant.

Theurgy and Philosophy are two different methods which lead to the union with God.
