God of the Month: Baal Shamin

Like all Polytheists, I have altars to “other” Gods. Baal Shamin of Palmyra is one of Them. This ancient Canaanite God did not wish to be forgotten, especially after the horrific destruction of his temple in Syria. When the Romans ruled the area, they featured his symbols on their armor – the thunderbolt and ear of wheat. Baal Shamin was the God of Protection, as well as, the God of the Sky and Fertility. October 28 is his festival day.

Mighty One!
