In The Odyssey, Athena acts as guide, adviser and shield to Odysseus. Homer’s portrayal of Athena appears to accord with her place in ancient Mycenaean society, a role that evolved by degrees over the centuries yet remained rooted in the notion of Athena as a protector of civilization. She was omnipresent to Classical Greece, where she was famously established as patroness of Athens, the stewardess of Athenian wealth and power. It is perhaps symptomatic of the aggressive Mycenaean civilization that Athena, the worship... Sacred Virtues:...
