PostSubject: Vesta.....   Mon Feb 16, 2009 3:39 pm

Vesta is the Roman Goddess of Fire and the Hearth, whose circular temple in Rome was considered the central hearth of the City.

Vesta is one of the most ancient Roman goddesses, whose worship remained of an ancient character. In the earliest times of Her worship, She was considered a Goddess of the earth as well as fire, perhaps in the recognition that the deep heart of the Earth is fiery. Later She became the Goddess of ceremonial or central fire, and was worshiped by the State, where She presided over the central altar, as well as in the home, where offerings were made to Her at every meal. Her national cult was tended by the famous Vestal Virgins, who took vows of chastity and tended Her fire, never allowing it to go out. The Vestals were given great honor and considered highly sacred persons, and were treated like princesses.
