Lecture # 6 10.6.2010     Pleasures and Punishment Hades: God of the Underworld, has dog (Cerberus) with three heads  that guards the entrance to the underworld Underworld: grey, lifeless, no new ideas, no birth/rebirth *Stories of archetypal figures who serve as examples of behavior that  we should never do. Painting #1      (on red vase): The Palace of Hades o Hades on throne with staff with wife, Persephone, holding torch o Are the King and Queen of the Dead o Laborers at bottom: Heracles with Kerberos; Hekate at far right Sisyphus rolling boulder while being shipped by a Erinys Detail of the Judges of the Dead: Rhadamanthys, Minos  (children of Zeus and Europa), and Aiakos (grandfather of  Achilles) Painting #2     o You can’t just get to the underworld; you must pay. o People often put a coin in their mouth or hand when they die. Charon carries souls across the River Styx and Cheron. Charon sits on the edge of the earth waiting for people to die. o Unrest and dissatisfaction in the Underworld. No body just phantom; souls flittering around in the Underworld like  bats. Picture #3
