Ev Cochrane: Mars in Ancient Myth and Religion | EU2017

Ev Cochrane will show that the name for the red planet Mars comes from the cult of the Latin god Mars as well as document that the characteristics of the Latin god are closely paralleled in the earliest Babylonian descriptions of the red planet. Far from being confined to the ancient Near East alone, the very same Mars-motifs are depicted in the New World, ancient China, and aboriginal Australia yet few make any sense by reference to Mars today. Ev will go on to discuss Mars’ role in the polar configuration and show how and why it was always intimately associated with the Queen of Heaven as paramour and husband.
