The Ta Hiera Hellenic Polytheist Forum SIG is a recon-oriented debate and discussion board focused on Hellenic Polytheism and related ancient beliefs. All willing to follow The Cauldron's Rules and Regulations are welcome. You will have a better experience here if you are aware of the following:

  • Our focus is a modern Hellenic religion that fits into the modern world while remaining true to the core of ancient Hellenic religion. That is, we focus on adapting ancient Hellenism to the current world we live in, not trying to duplicate it -- especially those parts of ancient Hellenism that require large numbers of people in one place, lavish state sponsored rituals and the like. If you have problems with this idea, this is probably not the Hellenic Polytheist group for you. On the other hand, a modern Hellenic religion will not look anything like the more popular Neo-Pagan religions (like Wicca, generic Neo-Paganism, etc.), so if you are looking for a Hellenic "Wicca-like" religion, this is probably not the group for you either.

  • "Recon-oriented" means that Unconfirmed Personal Gnosis (UPG) and non-primary or non-scholastic secondary sources will not be given the same weight as primary source material or scholastic secondary material in our discussions. (In other words, Hesiod and Homer will take precedence over something published by a Llewellyn author, something one saw in a dream, or the like.) If you are using UPG or questionable modern sources, you need to state that up front in your posts.

  • "Debate and discussion board" means that members are not required to agree and that debate can get very heated at times. However, we expect our members to always remember that those they are debating are not just names on a post, but real people who also have rights and feelings. The object of this board is to learn from the mix of ideas and views, not to completely demolish all who disagree with you.

  • The official position of this SIG is that the Gods call whom they will regardless of national origin, language spoken, race, gender, etc. While you are welcome to personally hold different views, this board is not the place to agitate for them.

  • Recon "pissing" contests (e.g. "I'm a real Recon and you aren't because I do 'X' and you don't.") are not welcome here. The Gods are welcome to judge who is a true worshipper and who is not if they wish, but it is hubris for humans to do it for them.
