Polytheist Leadership, Out of Context

While this isn’t related to the Thiasos of the Starry Bull in particular, I thought this post might be a bit easier to find on WordPress than on Tumblr. So, here goes the post I promised to all the PLC attendees!

Emily Kamp is a Hellenic polytheist, devoted in particular to Hestia, Hermes, and Dionysos the Starry Bull. When not teaching high-school Latin or making horrendous puns, she is the moderator of an online shrine to Hestia (which doubles as a daily devotional for polytheists of all stripes).
