Week 24 – Goddess Knowledge – Athena

Athena is presented by the Greeks as the virgin goddess of war and wisdom. A symbol of courage and friendship, she often counsels warriors to gentleness. She is especially honored as a goddess of agriculture; the creator of the olive tree, the flute, the ship, blacksmithing, and shoemaking; and the goddess who introduced the joke for the oxen and the bridal for the horse. She is patron of all useful and elegant arts. In Greek mythology, Athena is said to have breathed soul into the men created by Prometheus and to have helped Prometheus steal fire from the heavens to give to men. Athena is a wonderful affirmation that there are no limits to what a woman can do with her intellect and creative ability.
