The goddess of the harvest and agriculture, presiding over grains and the fertility of the earth.
Though Demeter is often described simply as the goddess of the cycle of life and death.
She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries, a religious tradition that predated the Olympian pantheon.
Demeter’s two major festivals were sacred mysteries.
- Her Thesmophoria festival (11–13 October) was women-only.
- Her Eleusinian mysteries were open to initiates of any gender or social class.
At the heart of both festivals were myths concerning Demeter as Mother and Persephone as her daughter.
