Edusa

November 16th, 2008 by sabrina

Edusa is the Roman Goddess of weaning. She takes over the nutrition of children from Rumina, Goddess of breastfeeding, when it is time for children to learn to eat solid foods. The Romans placed great importance on infancy and early childhood, and had many deities devoted to this time, each with rule over a very specific aspect. Edusa’s name is also seen as Educa, Edulia, or Edulica.

    probably the source of our word “education”; which seen as a series of weanings, sublimations, &latent regrets acquires a greater resonance. . .
