Read the lecture transcription.


O mother Gaia, of Gods and men the source, endured with fertile, all-destroying force;
all-parent, bounding, whose prolific powers produce a store of beauteous fruits and flowers.

All-various maid, the immortal world’s strong base, eternal, blessed, crowned with every grace;
from whose wide womb as from an endless root, fruits many-formed, mature, and grateful shoot.

Deep-bosomed, blessed, pleased with grassy plains, sweet to the smell, and with prolific rains.

All-flowery Daimon, centre of the world, around thy orb the beauteous stars are hurled with rapid whirl, eternal and divine, whose frames with matchless skill and wisdom shine.

Come, blessed Goddess, listen to my prayer, and make increase of fruits thy constant care;
with fertile seasons (horai) in thy train draw near, and with propitious mind thy suppliants hear.

- Orphic Hymn 26 to Ge, C3rd B.C. to 2nd A.D.
