- Vinalia Urbana and other festivals of Venus
- Epithets and roles of Venus
- Examples of epithets in mythology
1. Festivals of Venus: Vinalia Urbana, Vinalia Rustica & Venus Genetrix
Venus is the goddess of love, sex, beauty, fertility, victory, gardens and profane wine. That's a hefty resume for one deity, but she must have served the Romans well given the many festivals held in her honor. We'll explore four of them here.
2. Roman Goddess Venus: Epithets & Roles
In this lesson we explore the intoxicating legend of the Roman Goddess Venus. She was a highly revered Goddess mostly associated with beauty and love, however she was assigned several epithets that described the other roles she fulfilled for the Roman people.
3. Epithets in Mythology: Definition & Examples
In this lesson we will observe a rhetorical figure often found in epics and mythology: the epithet. Thus, it will be easier to understand the texts of the ancient Greeks.
