Venus is the Greek goddess of love, beauty and sexuality. According to Greek poet Hesiod, she was born when Cronus cut off Ouranos’ genitals and threw them into the sea, and from the aphros sea foam arose Aphrodite. Because of her beauty other gods feared that jealousy would interrupt the peace among them and lead to war, and so Zeus married her to Hephaestus, who was not viewed as a threat.

Smith , the gold gorget collar copying Irish Bronze Age examples. In his description, Julius Caesar claimed that they were one of the two most important social groups in the region alongside the equites, or nobles and were responsible for organizing worship and sacrifices, divination, and judicial procedure in Gaulish, British and Irish society. Druidic lore consisted of a large number of verses learned by heart, and Caesar remarked that it could take up to twenty years to complete the course of study.
What was taught to druid novices anywhere is conjecture: All instruction was communicated orally, but for ordinary purposes, Caesar reports,  the Gauls had a written language in which they used Greek characters. In this he probably draws on earlier writers; by the time of Caesar, Gaulish inscriptions had moved from the Greek script to the Latin script. Sacrifice[ [ edit ]n 18th century illustration of a wicker man , the form of execution that Caesar claimed the druids used for human sacrifice.
Celts and human sacrifice , Threefold death , and Ritual of oak and mistletoe Greek and Roman writers frequently made reference to the druids as practitioners of human sacrifice. A form of sacrifice recorded by Caesar was the burning alive of victims in a large wooden effigy, now often known as a wicker man. A differing account came from the 10th-century Commenta Bernensia , which claimed that sacrifices to the deities Teutates , Esus and Taranis were by drowning, hanging and burning, respectively see threefold death.

An Irish schoolteacher who came to a Jerusalem hospital convinced she was about to give birth to the Baby Jesus when in fact she was not even pregnant.
Origins[ [ edit ]he historical origins of Irish Travellers as a distinct group is still unknown. Research has been complicated by the fact that the group appears to have no written records of its own. A suggestion that they might be of Romani extraction [1s not supported by genetic evidence, which finds no connection to Romani groups. It has since been recognised that no single explanation is likely to be adequate in answering this complex question.
Current scholarship is investigating the background of Gaelic Ireland before the English Tudor conquest. The mobile nature and traditions of a Gaelic society based on pastoralism rather than land tenure before this event implies that Travellers represent descendants of the Gaelic social order marginalised during the change-over to an English landholding society.
The study provided evidence that Irish Travellers are a distinct Irish ethnic minority, who have been distinct from the settled Irish community for at least years; the report claimed that they are as distinct from the settled community as Icelanders are from Norwegians. This apparent distance though may be the effect of genetic drift within a small homogeneous population and may therefore exaggerate the distance between the two populations. An estimated time of divergence between the settled population and Travellers was set at a minimum of 8 generations ago, with generations at 30 years, hence years and a maximum of 14 generations or years ago.

After much consideration, it was agreed that the Island of Ireland should be divided into thirteen separate Provinces and that the City of Dublin, the County of Dublin and the town of Bray shall not be included in any Masonic Province, but shall continue under the superintendence of the Grand Lodge of Ireland.
