beliefs and myths from ancient times

I'm Jasmina (also called Jassie).

I'm from Denmark, and I blog about mythologies (mainly Greek, Norse, and Egyptian), religions, superstitions, etc.

I am a Hellenic polytheist in the religion known as Hellenismos - the traditional, polytheistic religion of ancient Greece.

You are very welcome to ask me anything, or request a post about a specific myth or mythical character, but please check the Greek Deities page and the Myths and Deities page before requesting something :)

Note: I usually post or reblog something every other day.

Perseus was a Greek hero and the son of Zeus and Danaë.

Danaë was the only child of Acrisius, King of Argos. Disappointed by his inability to father a son, Acrisius consulted the oracle at Delphi, who warned him that he would one day be killed by his daughter’s son.

Danaë was childless and to keep her so, Acrisius imprisoned her in a bronze chamber open to the sky in the courtyard of his palace.
Zeus came to her in the form of a shower of gold, and impregnated her. Soon after, their child was born.
Fearful for his future but unwilling to provoke the wrath of the gods by killing Zeus’s offspring and his own daughter, Acrisius cast Danaë and her son into the sea in a wooden chest.
