The Whore of Babylon or Babylon the Great is a Christian figure of evil mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible. Her full title is given as “Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes and Abominations of the Earth.”
Horae : Multi Cultural, Known in Persia as “houris”, in Egypt as “Ladies of the Hour”, in Babylon as “harines”. Semetics called them “whores” after Hor (meaning a hole) who was the ancestress of the Horites. In Greece the Horae were Aphrodite’s celestial nymphs, who performed the Dances of the Hours, acted as midwives to the Gods and inspired earthly Horae (harlot priestesses) to train men in Sexual Mysteries. The dance the hora was based on the priestesses’ imitation of the zodiacal circling of “hours”. Time-keeping is known as horology because of the systems devised by these ancient priestesses of the Goddess. The Horae were called “fair ones, begetters of all things, who in appointed order bring on day and night, summer and winter, so as to make months and years grow full.” The Vestal Virgins serving in the temples of Vesta and Hestia in Greece and Rome were originally harlot-priestesses. The temples of Aphrodite at Eryx, Corinth and Cyprus were served by a thousand sacred harlots apiece. The promiscuous priestess-shamans of Japan were called Holy Mothers. Every Babylonian woman prostituted herself in the temple before marriage. The original meaning of the word prostitute is “unmarried woman”.
Horus was often the ancient Egyptians’ nationalpatron god. Different forms of Horus are recorded in history and these are treated as distinct gods by Egypt specialists. These various forms may possibly be different perceptions of the same multi-layered deity in which certain attributes or syncretic relationships are emphasized, not necessarily in opposition but complementary to one another, consistent with how the Ancient Egyptians viewed the multiple facets of reality.[
