From Lamplight to Necromancy

Hekate / Maximilan Priner (1901)

Hekate is not entirely Greek; she originated from Anatolia. There she was the protector of entrances. Her two torches on either side of a passage way kept evil at bay, illuminating whoever sought entry. She was a welcome sight for weary travelers, and those who crossed under her light would give thanks. Hekate became so prominent that she even had her own temple at the gates of Constantinople.

In the Greek pantheon, her persona shifted to that of the goddess of death and magic. Her areas of influence included necromancy, crossroads, poisonous plants, and witchcraft.
