Subject Hephaestus (Greek Deity)


The life of Hephaestus, god of fire, abounded with intrigue, mystery, and excitement. Who was Hephaestus father? Why does Hera refuse to reveal his name? Why doesnt Hephaestus reveal the recipient of his special gift, the bronze net?

Hephaestus life as portrayed in Greek and Roman myths was filled with rejection and deception. Yet this god did not let the negative experiences of life stop him from seeking love and companionship. Hephaestus is shown as a god of pride, hope, and compassion. Though he sometimes struggles to make the right decision, he manages, like most of us, to find the right answer within himself.
