Here is a dose of daily religion from A to Z.
Today’s religious topic is as follows:
”Andromache”, in Greek myth, the daughter of Eëtion (prince of Thee in Mysia) and wife of HECTOR. All her relations perished in or shortly after the taking of Troy. When the captives were allotted, Andromache fell to NEOPTOLEMUS, the son of ACHILLES, whom she accompanied to Epirus and to whom she bore three sons. At Neoptolemus’ death, HELENUS, the brother of Hector, inherited both Andromache and the kingdom. After the death of Helenus, Andromache returned to Asia Minor with her youngest son, Pergamus, who there founded a town named after himself.
Andromache in Captivity by Frederic Leighton (ca. 1886)
