    New Ancient Goddess Discovered?

    Link here.

    These kinds of things amaze me, because I've been wondering for some time if there's deities out there that have yet to be discovered in the spirit world, and then we manage to find one right in the physical world.

    This is really awesome. I often wonder how many Gods have been lost to time. I'll take this as a lesson to keep myself open on my path, who knows who you might find.

    I forgot which book. but I think it was either Italian witchcraft or Hereditary witchcraft.

    it is also quoted by other places and authors. Uni was often equated with Juno.

    The Etruscan goddess Thalna is sometimes also equated with her, and/or with Hera.

    There's quite a bit of info about Uni out there, I just didn't recollect Grimassi going into it---but its been a long while since I've read anything by him...





    (For anyone interested in Etruscan religion, Nancy Thompson de Grummond and Larissa Bonfante are pretty much the way to go in terms of information.)

    anything on Italian or Etruscan folklore that I know of was solely from Grimassi. a lesser extent from Monsno. but never to my knowledge of Uni.

    Re: New Ancient Goddess Discovered?

    Uni is mentioned quite a bit in the book The Religion of the Etruscans, by Nancy Grummond, University of Texas Press, 2006. Seen her mentioned in other works as well so she is not exactly a newly discovered goddess. Granted many times it is in relationship to other goddesses through comparison or similarities of their purposes or roles. Figure this book was published in 2006 so well before this article's date of 2016 which suggests poor research on the part of the authors part who wrote the article I think.

    At the very least, we're getting to learn more about this goddess than we have before, unless the book you mentioned (which is starting to sound pretty interesting to me) says roughly the same thing that these "new discoveries" said.
