Find Out His Name

J.P. Rosenbaum, Ashley Hebert

Taken from the Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of World Religions

Here is a dose of daily religion from A to Z.

Today’s religious topic is as follows:

”Amphitryon”, in Greek mythology, son of Alcaeus, king of Tiryns. Having accidentally killed his uncle Electryon, king of Mycenae, Amphitryon fled with Alcmene, Electryon’s daughter, to Thebes, where he was cleansed of guilt by King Creon, his maternal uncle. Alcmene refused to marry Amphitryon until he had avenged the death of her brothers, all of whom except one had fallen in battle against the Taphians. Creon offered his help if Amphitryon would rid him of the uncatchable Cadmeian vixen. Amphitryon borrowed CEPHALUS’ invincible hound Laelaps, and ZEUS changed both Laelaps and the vixen to stone. The Taphians, however, remained invincible until Comaetho, the king’s daughter, out of love for Amphitryon, cut off her father’s golden hair, the possession of which rendered him immortal. On Amphitryon’s return to Thebes he married Alcmene.

When Amphitryon was once absent at war, Alcmene became pregnant by Zeus, who slept with her in the guise of her husband; she became pregnant again by her real husband upon his return. Thus she bore twin boys: Iphicles the son of Amphitryon, and HERACLES the son of Zeus.
