Hecate, Athenian red-figure bell krater C5th B. She was the only child of the Titanes Perses and Asteria from whom she received her power over heaven, earth, and sea. Hekate assisted Demeter in her search for Persephoneguiding her through the night with flaming torches. After the mother-daughter reunion became she Persephone's minister and companion in Haides.
Three metamorphosis myths describe the origins of her animal familiars: The dog was the Trojan Queen Hekabe Hecuba who leapt into the sea after the fall of Troy and was transformed by the goddess.
The polecat was either the witch Gale, turned as punishment for her incontinence, or Galinthias, midwife of Alkmene Alcmenawho was transformed by the enraged goddess Eileithyia but adopted by the sympathetic Hekate.
Hekate was usually depicted in Greek vase painting as a woman holding twin torches. Sometimes she was dressed in a knee-length maiden's skirt and hunting boots, much like Artemis. In statuary Hekate was often depicted in triple form as a goddess of crossroads. Her name means "worker from afar" from the Greek word hekatos.
The masculine form of the name, Hekatos, was a common epithet of the god Apollon. Others describe her as a daughter of Zeus and Demeter, and state that she was sent out by her father in search of Persephone Schol. Homer does not mention her.
According to the most genuine traditions, she appears to have been an ancient Thracian divinity, and a Titan, who, from the time of the Titans, ruled in heaven, on the earth, and in the sea, who bestowed on mortals wealth, victory, wisdom, good luck to sailors and hunters, and prosperity to youth and to the flocks of cattle; but all these blessings might at the same time be withheld by her, if mortals did not deserve them.
She was the only one among the Titans who retained this power under the rule of Zeus, and she was honoured by all the immortal gods. She also assisted the gods in their war with the Gigantes, and slew Clytius. This extensive power possessed by Hecate was probably the reason that subsequently she was confounded and identified with several other divinities, and at length became a mystic goddess, to whom mysteries were celebrated in Samothrace Lycoph.
For being as it were the queen of all nature, we find her identitied with Demeter, Rhea Cybele or Brimo ; being a huntress and the protector of youth, she is the same as Artemis Curotrophos ; and as a goddess of the moon, she is regarded as the mystic Persephone. She was further connected with the worship of other mystic divinities, such as the Cabeiri and Curetes Schol.
The ground-work of the above-mentioned confusions and identifications, especially with Demeter and Persephone, is contained in the Homeric hymn to Demeter; for, according to this hymn, she was, besides Helios, the only divinity who, from her cave, observed the abduction of Persephone.
With a torch in her hand, she accompanied Demeter in the search after Persephone; and when the latter was found, Hecate remained with her as her attendant and companion. She thus becomes a deity of the lower world; but this notion does not occur till the time of the Greek tragedians, though it is generally current among the later writers.
She is described in this capacity as a mighty and formidable divinity, ruling over the souls of the departed ; she is the goddess of purifications and expiations, and is accompanied by Stygian dogs.
By Phorcos she became the mother of Scylla. There is another very important feature which arose out of the notion of her being an infernal divinity, namely, she was regarded as a spectral being, who at night sent from the lower world all kinds of demons and terrible phantoms, who taught sorcery and witchcraft, who dwelt at places where two roads crossed each other, on tombs, and near the blood of murdered persons.Contributions Dennis Rawlins.
