My 100th post! I’m having a hard time finding pictures for some of them, especially for some of the more obscure Goddesses, so don’t be surprised if you see a generic picture turn up one day. Sure, I could just do all the popular ones that have statues and old paintings of them, but that would be boring. You can read about Aphrodite just about anywhere, but where else are you going to be able to learn about Boldogasszony?
Boldogasszony is the Hungarian Goddess of motherhood and birth. She watches over her children and assists with birth. With the coming of Christianity, she was replaced by the Virgin Mary, but one of Hungary’s most famous churches, Sarlos Boldogasszony (Visitation of Our Lady), still bears her name. Boldogasszony means “happy mistress”, and she is also known as Nagyasszony (big mistress) or Kisasszony (little mistress).
