Hestia/Vestia

Hestia/Vesta By: Grace Buckley

FORMS/POWERS:Hestia unlike some other gods/goddesses did not journey to the world, she stayed inside with the hearth of Olympus. Meaning she did not have any forms. This might contribute to her being the least well known olympian because she did not take part in war or disputes. This is because of her warm and gentle nature. Like all gods she had the power to resist injuries, longevity, and had superhero strength. In addition she also had energy weilding powers enabling her to do amazing things such as fly.

SACRED OBJECTS-The sacred fire: could not be burned out and was used to make sacrifices to the gods.-The donkey: Saved her from an attack- Preparation of a family meal: Because she supported domestic life-Anything sacrifieced to the gods because of the sacrifical flame.

One of her sacred objects.

"HESTIA IS THE GODDESS OF THE HEARTH, HOME, SACRIFICAL FLAME, AND FAMILYSHE WAS THE FIRST GENERATION OF OLYMPIANS IN MYTHOLOGY"

Hestia did not have the most drawn art of her. Yet here is a representation of how people believe she looked.

FAMILYHestia is the oldest child of Cronos and Rhea. Her siblings were Zeus, Poesidon, Hades, Demeter, and Hera.

This is a family tree of Hestia's family.

Roman temple dedicated to Vesta the roman version of Hestia.

Hestia was the first born and technically the last born of Cronos and Rhea she like her siblings were thrown up with the help of Zeus. She participated in the war against the titans and became an olympian. Because she had a gentle nature she didn’t participate in any more wars after that . Yet she did give up her throne. Unlike the other gods she was very humble and gave her throne to Dionysus to prevent conflict among the twelve olympians. In return Zeus granted her the ability to run Mount Olympus. Hestia tended to the fire of Mount Olympus and had the keys to Mount Olympus. She also would get a piece of every sacrifice that was given to the gods. Because she worked so hard inside Mount Olympus she didnt journey to the Earth, join in wars, or disputes.Causing her to become more of a minor god and that’s why some names for her was the forgotten goddess. Yet as a result she was the most respected of the gods.
