Eros or Cupid - Greek mythology and Latin mythology


Capitoline Museums, Rome (Italy)

Eros in Greek mythology is the god of love and according to Hesiod he would have manifested at the beginning of creation, after the birth of Gaea (see Myth of the birth of the world) and therefore would be part of the pre-Olympic divinities, symbol of the creation and perpetuation of living beings while according to others Eros would be the youngest of the gods, son of Aphrodite and Ares (or Hephaestus) or according to others of Zephyr and Eris.

Eros was a god who was always represented young. He was selfish and cruel so much that Zeus advised Aphrodite to kill him. But Aphrodite did not have the courage to do so and therefore hid him in the woods where he was raised by wild animals making him even more capricious and evil both towards men and towards the gods. An example among all is the loving passion that infused Apollo for Daphne (see Myth of Daphne).

Generally Eros is represented as a very handsome boy with wings on his shoulders, armed with a bow and arrow.

In his honor, the Erotidie were celebrated and held every five years.

According to what is handed down to us, Eros did not have love affairs. Only very late was his love for Psyche supposed.

In Latin mythology is identified with Cupid and retains the same attributes.

Eros or Cupid - Greek mythology and Latin mythology

« In spring, when
the water of the rivers derives in the gore
and along the sacred garden of virgins
opens the flower to the apple trees,
and another flower attacks the branches of the vine
in the darkness of the leaves

in me Eros,
that no age ever reassures me,
like the north wind red with lightning,
swift moves: so, turbid
merciless burned with dementia,
keeps tenacious in the mind
all the cravings I had as a boy. »

(Ibico - poet of the sixth century BC)

We are in Greece around 700 BC. and Hesiod exposes the current religion according to which the Earth (Gaea) and Tartarus originated from Chaos and together gave birth to Eros.

In Hesiod's Theogony, Eros is a creator God, the first God, born of primordial Chaos at the same time as Gaea without him none of the other gods would have arisen.

Son of Penia and Poros

We arrive at Plato and we are in the fourth century. BC, and in the Symposium he is described, by the mouth of Socrates, as the first born among the Gods is the son of Penia (Mancanza) and Poros (Expedient). Socrates and the guests at the boarding school seek the essence of love. Everyone attributes to love a state of beauty and positivity, aesthetics and well-being united. Socrates, on the other hand, narrates the myth taught him by Diotima, a cultured heterosexual, in which he speaks of a lack of love. Love is penia, that is, the sense of the lack of love.
Eros would thus represent the search for completeness that causes love and the expedients for which lovers are ready, but for others the discourse is deeper because it involves an inner search of the soul.

Eros, also in the Symposium, expressed the educational custom of the good society of the time, the loving relationship between two men, one of whom had the name of erómenos (beloved), a shy and submissive young man between 12 and 20 years old, while the other, named erastés (lover), was usually a mature man with good culture and above all with a good economic position or at least of prestige.

This relationship, defined as uranic, that is, sublime and celestial in the Convivio, is opposed to that between two sexes which would be decidedly of a lower order, the first of the Uranian Venus and the second of the pandemic Venus, that is sexual, that is, between man and woman.

The love between the mature man and the young man would be beyond the simple sexual relationship, because it would concern the education of the young man in future public life. For a child of good birth it was indeed a privilege to have the attentions of a noble and affirmed man.

The adult, however, did not have to give in to falling in love but had to be contained in feelings, the one who had to abandon himself to adoration was instead the young man who with the pleasures of his body had to compensate for the fatigue and bitterness of the other without expecting too much. In short, the adult behaved like a somewhat pedophile father.

We do not mistake this type of relationship with homosexuality which is quite another thing, just as a straight relationship can be healthy or corrupt depending on who practices it. This erotic custom also passed to Rome, albeit in a minor key, so that, while it was healthy and right that a mature free man had a teenager as a lover, it was instead very inconvenient that the same man should go with another mature male, because he was dealing with then of perversion.

The problem lay in the passivity or activity of the subject. It was normal to be passive for young men, slaves and women, it was abnormal for men made Greek or Roman. It is no coincidence that Catullus threw himself against Cesare and Mumurra, both adult generals who flirted with each other, calling them inverted and abominable, while Catullus ran after not only the beautiful Lesbia, but also the adolescents.

Son of Iris and Zefiro

According to later sources, Eros is the son of Iris and Zefiro.

"Therefore, as the son of Poros and Penìa, Love finds himself in this condition: in the first place he is always poor and anything but tender and beautiful, as most believe, indeed he is harsh, uneducated, always barefoot and without home, and lies down on the bare earth, sleeping outdoors in front of doors and in the streets according to the nature of his mother, and always accompanied by poverty. Instead, on his father's side, he undermines the beautiful and the virtuous, as he is brave and daring and vehement, and a shrewd hunter, always ready to weave intrigues, greedy for wisdom, rich in resources, and all his life in love with knowledge, ingenious magician and charmer and sophist and was neither born immortal nor mortal, but in one hour of the same day he flourishes and lives, if luck is propitious, in another he dies, but then is reborn by virtue of the nature of his father, and what he acquires it always slips away from him, so that Love is never poor or rich, and on the other hand it is in the middle between wisdom and ignorance. »

In Rome Eros changes his name and becomes Cupid, very similar to the Greek God, but some call him Love and others do not distinguish between Love and Cupid. Cicero hypothesized that Cupid was the son of Jupiter and Venus, and Cupid was the son of the Night and Erebus Seneca instead did not make any distinctions and wrote that he was the son of Venus and Vulcan.

Love tells me now that I write and Cupid guides my hand: may I die if I choose to be a god, but without you

Son of the Night and the Wind

The Orphics, we are in the sixth century. B.C. instead they elaborated another myth for which the Black-winged Night was loved by the Wind and laid a silver egg in the womb of the Erebus from that egg Eros was born that set the Universe in motion. Eros was therefore a hermaphrodite with golden wings, with four heads, with whom he roared like a lion, bellowed like a bull, hissed like a snake and bleated like a ram.

The Night, which he called Eros with the name of Ericepeo and Phaeton Protogenus, lived with him in a cave and took on the triple aspect of Night, Order and Justice. In front of that cave sat the inexorable mother Rhea who, clapping her hands on a bronze drum, forced men to pay attention to the oracles of the Goddess. Eros created the earth, the sky, the sun and the moon while the triple Goddess ruled over the Universe, until her power passed into the hands of Uranus.

« Men born in the darkness of your life, like the deciduous stock of leaves, frail beings, mud-mud, vain shadow figures, without the joy of wings, fleeting as day, unhappy mortals, men of the race of dreams, listen to us: immortal and ever-living, creatures of the sky, unaware of old age, experts in indestructible thoughts.
Hear from us all the truth about the things of heaven and the nature of birds, about the origin of the gods and rivers, and of the Erebus and of Chaos. You will know the truth, and for my part you will tell Prodico to go to hell for the future. In the beginning there were the Chaos and the Night and the dark Erebus and the immense Tartarus there was no earth, no air or sky. In the boundless bosom of Erebus, the Dark-winged Night first spawned an egg full of wind.
With the passing of the seasons, Eros blossomed from this, flower of desire: golden wings shone on his back and was similar to the swift whirlwind of the winds. Joined by night to the winged Chaos in the vastness of Tartarus, he brooded our lineage, and this was the first that led to the light. Not even the race of immortals existed before Eros joined the elements of the universe. When the other mating occurred, the sky and the ocean and the earth were born, and the immortal race of the blessed gods »
(Aristophanes. Birds 685-702)

For others Eros is considered the son of Ilizia, the Goddess of birth, "the one who helps women in labor", because the greatest love is maternal love.

In fact, Cupid, equipped with black wings, according to some gold, and with bow and quiver arrows, had the power to make all those he hit with fatal darts fall in love with.

Cupid would correspond to the God Imeros of Greek mythology while Love is considered to correspond to Eros.

The philosopher Hilmann attributes to:
- Himeros physical desire and excitement that is pandemic love
- Anteros would instead be reciprocated love and complicity,
- Pothos, or Poros, brother of Eros and son of Aphrodite and Cronus, would symbolize desire, personified on a cliff in front of the sea waiting for the love that will never come and concerns all the infinite wanderings of the mind behind the impossible, which it always pushes us to look for something we will never find.

« Men born in the darkness of your life, like the deciduous stock of leaves, frail beings, mud-mud, vain shadow figures, without the joy of wings, fleeting as day, unhappy mortals, men of the race of dreams, listen to us: immortal and ever-living, creatures of the sky, unaware of old age, experts in indestructible thoughts. Hear from us all the truth about the things of heaven and the nature of birds, about the origin of the gods and rivers, and of the Erebus and of Chaos. You will know the truth, and for my part you will tell Prodico to go to hell for the future. In the beginning there were the Chaos and the Night and the dark Erebus and the immense Tartarus there was no earth, no air or sky.

In the boundless bosom of Erebus, the Dark-winged Night first spawned an egg full of wind. With the passing of the seasons, Eros blossomed from this, flower of desire: golden wings shone on his back and was similar to the rapid whirlwind of winds. Joined by night to the winged Chaos in the vastness of Tartarus, he brooded our lineage, and this was the first that led to the light. Not even the race of immortals existed before Eros joined the elements of the universe. When the other mating occurred, the sky and the ocean and the earth were born, and the immortal race of the blessed gods »

(Aristophanes. Birds 685-702)

But it is also spoken of in the Greek myth, because Aphrodite, after becoming the wife of Vulcan, then becomes the lover of Mars with whom she generates Anteros (the antecedent Eros, the one who precedes Eros, as if to say the precursor) and subsequently Aphrodite became the lover of Mercury and from him she had a son who was Eros. Now Eros grew only if he was with Antero, but as Antero went away, Eros became a child again. Anteros is immature love, love for a partner from whom total love is expected, the satisfaction of all desires.

«But for me Eros doesn't sleep
in any season:
like the Thracian wind inflamed with lightning
rages beside Cypris
and burns me with mad passions,
gloomy, invincible,
strongly guards my soul. "

(Ibico, fr. 286)

Cicero instead hypothesized that Cupid was the son of Jupiter and Venus and Cupid was the son of the Night and Erebus Seneca does not make distinctions and wrote that he was the son of Venus and Vulcan.
In a myth, her love for Psyche was opposed by Aphrodite, forcing Psyche, guilty of having seen the likeness of God, to descend into Hades and emerge victorious.

A little decayed in the classical age, the cult of Eros returned to the fore in the Dionysian and mystery religiosity, recovering a nocturnal and infernal side that regulates life and death. Here appear the numerous Hellenistic and Roman figurations of erotes or cupids connected to the initiation of the neophyte or the soul into the afterlife, an event to which the fable of Cupid and Psyche, narrated by Apuleius in the Metamorphoses, is connected.

Plato's thought left a profound trace in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, intertwining with the exegesis of Christian love, not eros but agape, as love of God for men and of men for God. Plato's eros tends to Augustine's doctrine in which the ultimate goal of perfect behavior on earth leads to the contemplation of divinity in heaven.

And so the Platonic love for the Ephebes was sanctified in the pure love between God and men. Love between the sexes, on the other hand, would be sinful and brutal. No doubt about it, a good progress.

In the story of Apuleius, Psyche, a beautiful mortal, marries Love-Cupid without knowing him, because he only appears to her during the night. Pushed by the envious sisters to discover his identity, she commits a grave fault towards God, risking perpetual separation from him.

Psyche, a maiden princess is so beautiful that men offer sacrifices to her and call her Venus. So the jealous deity sends her son Eros to make her fall in love with the ugliest and most miserly man on earth and be covered in the shame of this relationship. And here Venus makes a disgusting figure. Psyche's parents, meanwhile, consult an oracle which replies:

« As at the wedding of death, dress your maiden and display her, O king, on a high barren peak. Do not expect a son-in-law born of a human race, but a ferocious, terrible, evil winged dragon that flying through the air all evil things and with iron and fire all troublesome beings. Jupiter himself fears him, his gods tremble, horror the rivers of Avernus and the dark kingdoms. "(IV, 33)"

Psyche is then taken to a cliff and abandoned. And here the parents make us a doubly disgusting figure. Cupid, however, sees her and falls in love with her, so he has Zephyr transported her to his palace where they will always meet in the dark so that Venus does not notice.

The nocturnal passion is strong but one night Psyche, instigated by her sisters, whom Eros had told her to avoid, with a dagger and an oil lamp decides to see the face of her lover, for fear that he is a hideous and bestial being.

Enraptured by the beauty of the God, she does not notice that a drop of oil falls from the lamp and burns the skin of Eros who, feeling betrayed, abandons her forever. One wonders: but by feeling an idea of ​​the features of the boy, Psyche hadn't made it? And then why in the dark, did they have Venus next door? But let's not go into it, it is the needs that justify the myth, which in reality would have a deeper implication.

Desperate Psyche attempts suicide several times, but the Gods forbid it, so she wanders through the cities in search of her husband, takes revenge on her sisters and prays to the Gods, until she reaches the temple of Venus and surrenders herself to her. This story inspired several fairy tales including Beauty and the Beast

Venus, who is not generous, subjects Psyche to several tests:
- he had to divide a pile of grains of different sizes into many equal piles but the ants helped him,
- then he had to collect the golden wool of a group of very aggressive sheep, so at sunset he only catches the blade left on the bushes.
- Then she had to collect water from a spring on a smooth and overhanging summit, but she was helped by the eagle of Jupiter.
- Finally he must descend into the Underworld and ask Proserpina for a little of her beauty. Desperate Psyche wants to throw herself off the tower but she comes to life and explains how to do it. During the return, however, out of curiosity, he opens the ampoule with the gift of Proserpina, which is actually a deep sleep. Eros, however, awakens her and asks her father (who has become Jupiter) for help.

Thus, by the will of Jupiter, Psyche becomes Goddess and marries Eros. The Gods celebrate with a great banquet where Bacchus acts as cupbearer, the three Graces play and the Volcano cooks lunch. Later the daughter is born, conceived by Psyche during a night of passion and is called Voluptuousness.

End of the myth, and beginning of commentators, from anthropologists to psychologists, to find hidden meanings. Eros could not be looked at with profane eyes and Psyche, who is the soul, must purify itself in order to look at God in his splendor.

Patriarchal distortions, the masculine is not Eros, which is always feminine. There is little to shuffle the cards, we have a mind that refers, in the present, in the past and in the future, to the outside and is our masculine. And we have an inside that includes instincts, feelings and emotions that is our feminine. The mind, which we perceive at forehead height, is the masculine, and it is the part that decodes the world, that organizes and relates to the outside, and is: Masculine. This part, however, is affected by everything that has been transmitted to it or that has been done to it, for better or for worse.

We perceive the female part at heart level, partly also in the stomach and belly, and it is the Feminine, who feels everything but is continually blocked by the mental male who tries to protect and adapt it, but in reality it imprisons it and the distortion.

Now it is the naked Goddess who cannot be unveiled with impunity, it is not the mind. "I am she who is, who always has been and always will be, and no man has ever dared to lift my veil"
This was said by the Great Sumerian and Hittite Mothers, a saying then copied by the Hebrew God Javhè, but only partially because the veil to be lifted over the God was embarrassing.

It is no coincidence that Eros is declared male in the era of patriarchy and pedophilia, that is the attempt to do without the woman by replacing her with ephebes, therefore feminine. Sexuality in any form is respectable if it concerns adults only, if there is no coercion, neither physical nor moral, and if it does not involve physical ills. The search for ephebes was not homosexuality, of all respect, but pedophilia.

Aphrodite, however, was always the Eros par excellence in every part of the world, she was the lustful Goddess who was a virgin, that is, without a husband, but who mated often and willingly, like her priestesses. The mind observes and deduces, but the one who loves is the soul. This is why Eros is defined as Penia in the Symposium, because the mind feels and suffers the lack of Eros, because Eros is only soul.

The myth offers the possibility to investigate the conception that ancient communities had of the human soul.

This essay is dedicated to the attempt to reconstruct the psychological knowledge of the ancient Greeks starting from their mythology.

However, it is good to clarify that the psychology of myths does not take up Greek-Roman mythology, but also the myths of other cultures: Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Celtic, Jewish, Chinese, German, Thracian, Dacian, Indian and so on.

The Pantheon of ancient psychology

Psychology in this specific context is not a "didactic", because, on the contrary, it is dynamic, complex and surprisingly real.

As in the case of all polytheistic religions, the Greek myths speak of the origin of the world and of humans, as well as the actions of gods and heroes ”.

The legend of cosmogony is often a story about the "birth" of psychological and behavioral manifestations.

The Night gave birth to Moros (collapse), then Hypnos (sleep) and Oneiroi (dreams), as well as a multitude of evil Gods: revenge, fraud, war, disturbance, struggle, death. , dissent, lies and words of dubious meaning, injustice and hatred. At the service of the Olympian gods there were: the Hours (representing the idea of ​​order and regularity), Moira (faith), Nemesis (the reward for injustices), the Caryatids (the idea of ​​elegance), the Muses (the idea of ​​art), Iris, Hebe (youth) and Ganymede (the beautiful servant of the Gods) ”.

Even the main age finds a correspondent in the being of certain Gods: Hermes is the eternal child, intelligent and creative heroes are associated with adolescent spiritual initiation rituals.

Hebe is the young man married to Heracles, Zeus symbolizes maturity as an age associated with power, balance and the ability to lead, Cronos represents the end of our evolution, age, the God of death and time.

From the beginning one cannot ignore the deterministic view of the ancient Greeks regarding psychic manifestations, a conception that derives from their general belief in universal order and predestination.

The psychic, together with the body, undergoes the influence of natural laws. Eager for universal harmony, the ancient Greeks valued balance and psychological normality. Opposing these was a crime that led to a kind of punishment.

Prometheus, the prototype of genius and unthinkable courage, was severely punished by the gods.

Madness, as a mental disorder, knows a large area of ​​representations. Regarding its origin, in most cases, the ancient Greeks invoked the guilt (personal, that of a family member or ancestors) of offending the gods out of selfishness, negligence or injustice.

For the intentional error the term used is Hybris, and for the unintended defect the term is Hamartia, the typical example is that of Oedipus.

The deities of the Greek myths associated with mental illness or disorder are, consequently, extremely numerous, linked to the emotions of the mad person and the reason for his suffering.:

Hecate, infernal goddess of the night. Represented as having three heads, a symbol of the impossibility of escaping one's fears, she waits for travelers at the intersection “Pushing them towards despair and death”. She corresponds to each person's unconscious fears.

Erynies, the Greek name for the Furies. “Since ancient times, they have begun to be identified with conscience. Carried "inside" the mind, they symbolize the remorse, the sense of guilt, the self-destruction of the person who feels the impossibility of being forgiven " . The correspondence with the Eumenides reveals a complex psychological dynamic. “This evolution is linked to that of conscience, which first prohibits and then punishes. The Erinias can transform themselves into Eumenides, favorable divinities, when reason leads the morbid conscience to a better appreciation of human acts ”.

The Gorgons, three monstrous sisters who inspired fear they were synonymous with the ugliness of the soul and a symbol of decay. "Euryale represents the sexual perversion, Stheno the social perversion and Medusa symbolizes the spiritual need to evolve but subsequently transformed, by the hand of Athena, into a horrible creature".

The Harpies they are similar to the Erines in meaning and consequences, but have a more general meaning. "Harpies symbolize bad habits - the obsessions generated by craving and even remorse the wind that carries them is generated by the spirit."

Hydra, the legendary snake with nine heads, continues the analogy with the lust that devours the soul, taking a step further: “Everything that comes into contact with depravity is either ruined by it or is ruined”.

The Bacchantes or Menai, servants of Dionysus, have, due to their rituals, a complex symbolism, being in direct connection with hysteria, drunkenness and perversion.

The Nymphs remember one “Superstition that refers to the madness generated by any form that arises from the water the sensation of attraction and terror”.

The ancients noted the dual nature of humans, expressed in the myth of the Dioscuri. “Pollux (the soul) cannot live his terrestrial experiences without Castor (the body)”.

Regarding the existence of consciousness and the unconscious in our being, the ancient Greeks not only guessed it, but also created some suggestive metaphors concerning it: the passage to the world of Hades, the fight between Perseus and Medusa, Tezeu and the Minotaur, the centaurs as a union of contrasts.

Apollo's victory over Python is the triumph of reason over instinct, conscience over the unconscious ". But, even better represented in Greek mythology, are the antagonism and complementarity between rational and emotional, from "Pairs of opposites" such as: Athena-Ares, Athena-Poseidon, Apollo-Dionysus.

In this context, one can clearly see a Greek preference for reason, order and the Logos. Therefore, "Athena is Ares' worst enemy, which he defeats in the famous battle of the gods", and so wisdom defeats anger and brute force.

Similarly, Athena wins the city of Poseidon, god of irrational, sudden and violent gestures. The symbolic gesture of taming the horse offered by Poseidon to the Athenians means remodeling, with the help of the intellect, what is natural and unrefined.

The ability to think to help us adapt and evolve is best represented by the image of the caduceus (belonging to Hermes, a God associated with intelligence, agility, wisdom): the two snakes are the alchemical symbol of the union of contrasts, conciliation and creative synthesis.

Zeus married “Metis, whose name means idea. From this union Athena was born, growing in the head of Zues, from where she jumped into the world ”.

This is how the ancient Greeks instinctively linked the process of thinking with the head and, implicitly, the brain.

Humorists, in exchange, consider it the ability of cognitive work, the genesis of an idea (Athena), to generate headaches.

In conclusion, Athena “It symbolizes, above all, psychological creation, synthesis, socialized intelligence”. Therefore, the words of Horace, remained famous: “I will be able to say or do nothing without the help of Minerva (Athena)”.

About the Apollo-Dionysus couple (thought by Nietzsche in relation to the philosophy of culture) we can think of it as the harmony of reason against the experience of ecstasy.

Dionysus, god of drunkenness and mystic, “Symbolizes the overcoming of inhibitions, of repressions”.

But the opposition between reason and emotion is not always seen as a conflict. The symbol of perfection, the hermaphrodite, the one who integrates the masculine and the feminine, is as the name implies, the son of the intellect (Hermes) and of affectivity (Aphrodite).

In addition to this, the respect and importance of Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty, in Greek mythology is obvious. "The sexual act is the specific domain of Aphrodite, which she inspires and protects".

Its opposite is Artemis, a virgin goddess. “The Greeks saw in her eternal virginity the indifference towards love. In Euripides' tragedy, Artemis herself affirms her hatred for Aphrodite ”.

The Goddess is, like all feelings, primordial, feared by the gods, capable even of giving life (Galatea). The Apple of Discord wins because love comes before power (Era) and wisdom (Athena).

The eternal lover of the Goddess is Ares (whose cohort is formed by Enyo, the destruction, Eris the dispute, Deimos the terror and Phobos the fear).

The union between Aphrodite (feminine and spiritual side) and Ares (masculine and carnal side) generated Harmony (union of contrasts) and Eros (passion).

About Eros, or Cupid for the Romans, the myths say that "His arrows are of two types: those made of gold, soaked in honey, others made of lead, soaked in poison".

Love is therefore joy and also pain, just as affective processes are characterized by polarity and mobility. Ancient artists presented Eros astride a lion. In this way they have shown that feelings can tame any being regardless of how cruel they are.

From antiquity to modern psychology

Most of the psychological ideas that the ancient Greeks had have not been lost, but found, perhaps in a different form in modern scientific psychology.

Even more, this psychological approach to mythology has proved to be a valid and useful investigation, capable of generating new concepts and theories.

Mythology is not dead. “Noscere te ipsum: know yourself. The old saying written at the entrance to the Delphi temple seems more present than ever ". Myths thus offer the possibility of delving into the essence, moving towards oneself.

The origin of the word psychological also leads us to a myth: Psyche and her lover, Eros.

This allegory has a meaning. Psyche, in the Greek language means soul. But the soul arises only through love, Eros, and ends up in Olympus, the place of eternal happiness ”.

The psychic is characterized by feeling, life and torment. Thus, psychology represents, from the mythological point of view, much more than just science or knowledge.

In short, it is the study of the human soul in search of love.
