- Follow Hellenic Faith on WordPress.com
Hellenic Faith is a website dedicated to Julian Hellenism, a reformed denomination of Hellenism, the polytheistic religion of the Graeco-Roman world, influenced by the teachings and writings of Julian the Philosopher (r. 361-363 ACE) and the divine Iamblichus (c. 245-325 ACE). It is a Orphic-Platonic tradition, derived from the teachings of Orpheus through the Platonic school, and solar-based, centered around the worship of the omnipotent creator God, King Zeus-Helios.
This website is under constant construction. It is expected to be completed by (at the very least) the year 2021 ACE. Everything on this website is subject to change. Many articles are incomplete, and those which do seem complete may be subject to complete revision.
