Hecate - The Story Of The Goddess Of Witchcraft
Hecate is one of the characters in Greek Mythology that has a divine authority and a power to control over magic, witchcraft, and sorcery. Hecate was associated with the magical art of necromancy because she was thought to have the power to govern the spirits of the dead.

In this video, we will talk about who Hecate is and what is her relationship with Persephone, and why she was never included in the Greek Pantheon. So, sit back, relax and enjoy this video. 

Hecate is a #goddess  in Greek religion and mythology, most commonly represented with a pair of torches, a key, snakes, or hounds, and subsequently shown as three-formed or triple-bodied. Crossroads, entrances, darkness, light, magic, protection against witchcraft, the Moon, knowledge of herbs and toxic plants, cemeteries, ghosts, necromancy, and sorcery are all connected with her.

Her first literary appearance was in Hesiod's Theogony in the eighth century BCE as a goddess of high honor having realms in the sky, earth, and sea. Scholars disagree on her origins, but she had a large following among the witches of Thessaly and a prominent sanctuary among the Carian Greeks of Asia Minor at Lagina.

The goddess Hecate is one of the lesser-known goddesses of the Greek pantheon. Child of Perses and Asteria, she was the only Titan to retain her control under Zeus' reign. Hecate's powers transcended the boundaries of the sky, the earth, the seas, and the underworld.
