CLST 107: Week 5 Artemis, Demeter, and Persephone. Artemis: goddess of hunt, virginity, and the moon, virgin goddess, nature goddess, triple faced goddess. Depicted as beautiful but standoffish. She is divine femininity. Carries silver arrows and wears golden sandals. Olympian twins (Artemis and Apollo), very protective of their mother Leto. Asked Zeus to never marry her off so she could stay a virgin. She requires everyone around her stay a virgin. Callisto has an affair with Zeus so Artemis turns her into a bear. (Ursa major.) Attributes: Silver bow and arrows, palm tree, wildflowers, wild animals: quail, deer, bear, wolf, hunting dogs. Triple Faced Goddess: Selene, Hekate, and Artemis. Not actually three faced, but three goddesses. Demeter: goddess of agriculture, crops, harvest. Mother figure, mother of Persephone. Demeter and Persephone are inseparable. Represent life cycle; Demeter fall and Persephone spring. When Persephone is abducted by Hades, Demeter threatens to kill all the humans by unleashing Winter. Eventually she gets her back (in Spring) and it is agreed Persephone can stay through Fall, then go back to Hades in Winter. This is why Winter happens.
