On the 4th of July let’s Honor the Goddess Of Libertas!

Freedom

 

This morning when I woke up the goddess was right beside me and she gave me a strong message. She said to me “Let them not forget me, as they have always had my favor”. I decided to honor her and bring awareness to her with this blog.

On this great day our nation celebrates the freedom that we attained from the Kingdom of England but let us not forget and take time today to also honor the Lady that stands guard on our behalf. Our fore fathers felt that this goddess was very important to our nation which is why even today she holds a very important place in our Nation’s Capital.

She is the Statue of Freedom, also known as Armed Freedom. She  is a bronze statue designed by Thomas Crawford (1814–1857). She has graciously stands guard on top of the dome of the US Capitol in Washington DC. She was originally named Freedom Triumphant in War and Peace, official U.S. government publications now state that the statue “is officially known as the Statue of Freedom”. She depicted as a female figure wearing a military helmet and holding a sheathed sword in her right hand and a laurel wreath and shield in her left.

The statue was created to honor and as a representation of the Roman goddess Libertas. Which had given her favor to the newly formed nation of the United States of America.

In 238 BC Libertas assumed the goddess status. She was the personification of all the virtues of Liberty and Freedom. Tiberius Gracchus ordered the construction of her first temple on Aventine Hill in Rome. She was also known as the goddess of democracy. The rod is one of her symbols it was used in the ceremony Manumissio vindicta (Freedom by the Rod) in which a master would free a slave.  The Greek equivalent to Libertas is Elleutheria.

She has served as inspiration for many modern-day symbols including the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island. According to the National Park Service, her Roman robe is the main feature that invokes Libertas and the Symbol of Liberty from which it is named. In addition money throughout history has been created in her honor.
