Hathor 2340   Leave a comment

Hathor is an ancient Cow Goddess of Egypt along with Isis she is said to be the mother of Horus and her name means the mansion of Horus.  Hathor is associated also with the Nile and childbirth in particular, when the waters break in labour it was seen as symbolic of Hathor.  Hathor also welcomed the dead into the new world, death was seen as a rebirth and it was very natural for Hathor to be connected as the Goddess of Birth.

The Cult of Osiris promised eternal life to those deemed morally worthy. Originally the justified dead, male or female, became an Osiris but by early Roman times females became identified with Hathor and men with Osiris.
