Day 30: Any suggestions for others just starting to learn about this deity?
For my last post, I would like to include a list of links I have utilized over the course of these 30 days of devotional writing. Some I quoted directly and provided hyperlinks within the text itself, but here it is easier to find. I also would suggest if anyone is truly wanting to connect with Hermes that they establish an altar and set to making offerings. In the devotional act of gifting, without any other motivation except making a connection, your reward will be so much more rich than if you simply ‘give to get’; something I see a lot of Pagans doing.
- Theoi is THE best online resource for information about the Greek Gods, Heroes and Mythology in general, with their section on Hermes to be pretty wide.
- Mythagora is another great site that really is more annotated, but overall enjoyable resource of mythology. I utilized their list of texts including Hermes which came in handy.
- The Neokoroi website has a wonderful sections for each God full of good information, including an extensive list of offerings for Hermes and a great essay entitled “Hermes: An introduction to worshiping the messenger of the Gods“.
- The HellenicGods website is a great resource on Hellenismos and ways to include worship with traditional Hellenic religion into modern lives. Their section on making offerings is exceptionally good.
- A great blog I highly suggest concerning the life of a modern Hellenic, is Baring the Aegis.
- Our Hermetikoi have the Digital Herm as our home on the internet, and an excellent source for Hermes…especially the growing Bibliography page.
- Sacred-texts is a wonderful source for primary source materials of pretty much anything from the ancient world… or at least prior to copyright laws. Here are the site search results for all their materials including the term Hermes… so we get the alchemical Hermes Trismegistus, philosophers writing about the God Hermes, and images of ancient portrayals of the quick-witted one.
