The Arachne is a creature from Greek mythology, whose name was later used for words like “arachnid” and “arachnophobia.” There’s very little to fear about the story of Arachne, however. Hers is a cautionary tale about pride that we can all learn from. According to the myth, Arachne was a very famous and talented weaver. . Arachne has even issued a challenge, claiming that she will beat Minerva in a weaving contest if the goddess has the courage to accept. Outraged, Minerva disguises herself as an old woman and visits Arachne. She tries to persuade Arachne to take back the challenge. She argues that old age has made her wise, and that Arachne should heed her advice.

Students also characterized Arachne and Athena referring to the textual evidence as their support for personality conclusions drawn. Groups shared with the whole class compelling examples of evidence and made inferences about the character traits of Arachne and Athena.   Conlaudate Matercula Arachne-Sepheranz There’s a book called “The Deplorable World” by Constantine Charagma and Erica Frevel that mentions Sanatas, and I think the deity known as the “The Dark Mother of Monsters” might be closely linked with Sepheranz. It’s at least worth looking into, even if its conception of Satan is a bit off.
