“There are horrors beyond life's edge that we do not suspect, and once in a while man's evil prying calls them just within our range.”
― H.P. Lovecraft, The Thing on the Doorstep
We do not willingly let evil into out homes…. but what if you let it in without knowing it until it is too late?
In this episode we hear about the case of the Papin sisters from France, and the Contendings of Heru and Set from Ancient Egyptian Mythology, both of which feature eye plucking.
Here is a brief Egyptian to Greek translation of the characters from this weeks myth in order of appearance:
Set - Seth
Wesir - Osiris
Aset - Isis
Heru / Heru-Sa-Aset - Harseisis
Ra - Re, Pre, Pra
Djehuty - Thoth
