What is less-known is that Athena, too, has a patronage-portfolio role over this area under her Aegis likewise - part of a persistent … Continue reading A Brief Point Upon Sacred Hospitality, The (Wandering) God-Guest, And Vratya
We had a question to the page about why I'd placed Dyaus and Tvastr in the same spaces on a recent image. A good question. I have long maintained that Tvastr is also an expression of the Indo-European Sky Father deific [i.e. Dyaus Pitar].
