About the event
This event is hosted through Hauswitch, Salem. Please see their website for tickets and further details.
The ancient goddess Hekate is known in a variety of aspects, most notably as the goddess of the crossroads, witchcraft, and spirits of the dead. Join Catland's co-owner Melissa Madara for a deep dive into the winding, snaking history of the howling, nightmare goddess in all her various epithets, examining how her cult emerges and shifts through history to deliver her to us today.
This lecture will examine Hekate's pre-historical origins, her rituals in the PGM, her demonization in the Roman empire, and her evolution into the decaying goddess of witches that we know today. We will explore her sacred plants, the songs and chants attributed to her name, her rituals, and her varied mythology & interpretations.
*This is a virtual workshop hosted via Zoom! A recording will be available post-event for all ticketholders.*
