Hymns To the Underworld Deities
« on: June 27, 2013, 12:24:57 pm »
I've been looking for hymns to Hecate, Hades, Persephone, and the others. The Homeric Hymns list the hymns to gods like Zeus, Hera, Hermes, and many others. Does anyone know the name of the ones to the underworld deities, as I can't remember what their called. I'm also on one cup of coffee, so nothing makes sense.

There is an Orphic Hymn to Hekate and Persephone.  I can't remember if there is one to Hades.  

 The Orphic Hymns
by Apostolos N. Athanassakis.  You can get it on Amazon.
I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --SatAset

It's called Google... but fine.

Orphic hymn to Pluton [Haides]
