Description

One of the most important gods in the Roman pantheon was the goddess Vesta. 

Vesta was the goddess of the hearth and home, and her temple was one of the most important in ancient Rome.

It was attended by six women who were some of the most important in all of Roman society. They were given privileges that few in Rome were allowed, but it also came at a very steep price.

Learn more about the Vestal Virgins, the cult of Vesta, and its role in Roman society on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
