Term: Isis

DEFINITION:
One of the most popular and beloved goddesses. Her worship began in Egypt where she was known as Au Set, but in Greek it became Isis. Her worship spread throughout Europe, and when She appears in specialized forms, she is given different names. For example, she is Aphrodite (goddess of Love), Hecate (goddess of magic), and Demeter (goddess of grain).

It is estimated that She has been worshiped for 6,000 years. Rituals for initiation into her Mysteries appear in Apuleius’ Metamorphoses, or The Golden Ass (circa 100 CE). The ritual is similar to initiation into certain modern Witchcraft groups.
