Mythology Meme: [1/2] Mythological Objects
↳ Lance of Longinus
Mentioned only in the Gospel of John (19:31–37) and not in any of the Synoptic Gospels. The gospel states that the Romans planned to break Jesus’ legs, a practice known as crurifragium. Just before they did so, they realized that Jesus was already dead and that there was no reason to break his legs. To make sure that he was dead, a Roman soldier (named in extra-Biblical tradition as Longinus) stabbed him in the side “and immediately there came out blood and water.”
Catholics, while accepting the biological reality of blood and water as emanating from the pierced heart and body cavity of Christ, also acknowledge the allegorical interpretation: it represents one of the main key teachings/mysteries of the Church, and one of the main themes of the Gospel of Matthew, which is the homoousian interpretation adopted by the First Council of Nicaea, that “Jesus Christ was both true God and true man.” The blood symbolizes his humanity, the water his divinity.

Mythology Meme: [1/1] Mythology↳ Greek MythologyGreek mythology is embodied in a large collection of narratives, and arts. Greek myth attempts to explain the origins of the world, and details the lives and adventures of a wide variety of gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines and mythological creatures.Why?Greek Mythology is on my life for about 14 years now. Made me get interested in classical art, inspired me several times in several questions. Honestly, I have no idea where I’d be now without the greek mythology. That’s why it is so important to me.
So it’s known that I am crazy about mythology, and I couldn’t find a graphic challenge of any sort, so I decided to come up with one instead. So yeah, here it goes:
1 Mythology (greek, norse, roman, etc)
2 Mythological Objects
