Hestia Goddess

Hestia Goddess-
The Beautiful Goddess Hestia 
Good Day my dear Friends & Followers, for today I am going to bring you all into the world of the Olympians by way of the Goddess Hestia. The Goddess of the Hearth or the fire burning of Hearth, it has said to be either way among the Gods of Olympians. She was regarded as one of the twelve great gods and she was another daughter of Kronus and Rhea. According to the Greek Mythology and the Olympians, the Goddess Hestia was the first born daughter of Rhea and therefore the first of the children that was swallowed by her father Kronus.  It seems that she was like Artemis and Athena, a Maiden Divinity and Goddess. From what I  find out, she was quite beautiful as all three sisters were - including herself, Hera and the Demeter too. It seems that she too had many suitors too. As Apollo and Poseidon had sued for her hand, however Hestia swore by her older brother Zeus to remain a virgin forever and in this character it was that her sacrifices consisted of only cows which were only one year old. I discovered that even thought the Goddess vowed that she would remain a virgin forever, she

and Poseidon are seen often at Mount Olympia
Still had connections with the powerful and known to be very handsome Apollo and Poseidon Gods of Olympus, which thus alluded to the legends of the Temple of Delphi where the three divinities were worshipped in common and Hestia and Poseidon did appeared together also at Mount Olympia. It seems besides the Mighty God of the Seas Poseidon - Hestia was often seen together with Hermes too; as a protecting the works of man.  I leads me to believe that Hestia was quite the Goddess and had many suitors both God and maybe even mortal. She sounds as if she was quite a beauty and even though she took the vow of chastity the Gods still loved to be around her.
As I dug a little deeper into the life of the beautiful Goddess Hestia I discovered that she was looked upon as the Hearth; as the sacred centre part of domestic life of both the Gods & their mortals. So it seems that Hestia was the Goddess of domestic life and the giver of all domestic happiness, blessing and as such she was believed to dwell in the inner part of every house to have invented the art of building houses. As the hearth of a house is at the same time the altar on which sacrifices are offered to the domestic Gods - Hestia was looked upon as presiding at all sacrifices. As the Goddess of all sacrifices of fire at the altar,
Goddess Hestia
She had a share in the sacrifices in all the temples of the Gods. Hence when any sacrifices were offered, Hestia was invoked first, and the first part of the sacrifice was always offered to the goddess. Solemn oaths were always sworn in by the Goddess of the hearth ~Hestia~ and the hearth itself was the sacred asylum where suppliants implored the protection of the inhabitants of the house. Basically The Goddess Hestia would always give protection to the homes of all the mortals at the time and give protection to all the inhabitants in the house too. She was also the Goddess that the mortals gave great offerings and sacrifices too to make sure their homes were safe. Hence by doing these great offerings and sacrifices the people would relieve solemn oaths sworn by the goddess of the Hearth and then all inhabitants of the house would be protected by her solemn oaths  and words... This could be extended to a town  or city too. Hence the people would likewise have a sacred hearth, the symbol of an harmonious community of citizens and of a common worship to their Goddess Hestia. There was another public hearth that exited in ancient Greece and these were called the Prytaneium in the center of town. This is where the Goddess had her especial sanctuary (thalamos), under the name of Prutanitis, with a statue and the sacred hearth too. This is where the prytanes would offer sacrifices to the Goddess and upon entering her private hearth Hestia would protect their suppliants. It seem that back in the day, as these public Hearth's were sacred in every town, so hence each state would receive their prytanes had all their sacrifices there too for the Goddess Hestia. When a colony was sent out, they always took the fire which burn in the sacred public Hearth with them, to their new home so that it would be blessed with the Goddess Hestia blessing.

If ever the fire of the public hearth became extinct, it was not allowed to be light again with  ordinary fire, but by either fire produced by friction or by burning glasses drawing fire from the sun. Some have speculated in the ancients that the Goddess Hestia could be in someways like that of a divinity such as Gaea or her sister Demeter. Hence being the universe or the centre of the earth hearth in a mystical form of Warmth... As far as special temples that were just make
for the Greek Goddess Hestia, it seems that every Prytaneum was a sanctuary of the Beautiful Goddess. And it seems that all temples in Greece give a portion to the
goddess whatever the divinity they may offered it too, they all belong to her. She may have been a quiet and home body of goddess... However, she was an powerful Goddess and she was beloved by all the people of Greece in the ancient times.. Plus I believe she was also loved and respected by many of the Olympians too. I HOPE THAT YOU ALL
