About this deal

According to the Avesta, the sacred text of the Zoroastrians, wolves are a creation from the 'darkness' of the evil spirit Ahriman, and are ranked among the most cruel of animals. [25] and belong to the daevas. The Bundahishn, which is a Middle Persian text on the Zoroastrian creation myth, has a chapter dedicated to the 'nature of wolves' as seen in Zoroastrian mythology and belief.

Benjamin Thorpe translation: Geri and Freki the war-wont sates, the triumphant sire of hosts; but on wine only the famed in arms, Odin, ever lives. [6] The Bible contains 13 references to wolves, usually as metaphors for greed and destructiveness. In the New Testament, Jesus is quoted to have used wolves as illustrations to the dangers His followers would have faced should they follow him (Matthew 10:16, Acts 20:29, Matthew 7:15) [64] Virgil leads Dante away from the she-wolf in Inferno Canto 1 lines 87-88 as drawn by Gustave Doré, 1861 Watson, Burton (1993).

Mount Lykaion ( Λύκαιον ὄρος) is a mountain in Arcadia where an altar of Zeus was located. Zeus Lykaios was said to have been born and brought up on it, and was the home of Pelasgus and his son Lycaon, who is said to have founded the ritual of Zeus practiced on its summit. This seems to have involved a human sacrifice, and a feast in which the man who received the portion of a human victim was changed to a wolf, as Lycaon had been after sacrificing a child. The sanctuary of Zeus played host to athletic games held every four years, the Lykaia. As the Lady of Mount Tai, Bixia is regarded as the female counterpart of Dongyuedadi, the "Great Deity of the Eastern Peak" (Mount Tai). Wéndi — Culture Deity, or 文昌帝 Wénchāngdì — Deity who Makes Culture Thrive, or 文昌王 Wénchāngwáng — King who Makes Culture Thrive: in southern provinces, this deity takes the identity of various historical persons, while in the north, he is more frequently identified as being the same as Confucius ( Kǒngfūzǐ 孔夫子)Chinese traditional theology, which comes in different interpretations according to the classic texts, and specifically Confucian, Taoist, and other philosophical formulations, [20] is fundamentally monistic, that is to say, it sees the world and the gods who produce it as an organic whole, or cosmos. [21] The universal principle that gives origin to the world is conceived as transcendent and immanent to creation, at the same time. [22] The Chinese idea of the universal God is expressed in different ways. There are many names of God from the different sources of Chinese tradition. [23] The additional eight main goddesses of fertility, reproduction, and growth are: [72] :149–150,191,note 18

Since all gods are considered manifestations of 氣 qì, the "power" or pneuma of Heaven, in some views of tian, some scholars have employed the term "polypneumatism" or "(poly)pneumatolatry", first coined by Walter Medhurst (1796–1857), to describe the practice of Chinese polytheism. [10] Some Taoists consider deities the manifestation of the Tao. [ citation needed] Raijū ("thunder beast") is a god from the Shinto religion. It is attributed with causing thunder, along with Raijin, who causes lightning. While Raijū is generally calm and harmless, during thunderstorms it becomes agitated, and leaps about in trees, fields, and even buildings. If the images on the Tullstorp Runestone are correctly identified as depicting Ragnarök, then Fenrir is shown above the ship Naglfar. [40]Héshén — River God: any watercourse god, among which, one of the most revered is the god of the Yellow River, 河伯 Hébó — River Lord [iv] There are a variety of immortals in Chinese thought, and one major type is the xian, which is thought in some religious Taoism movements to be a human given long or infinite life.
