Hecate or Hekate[a] is a goddess in ancient Greek religion+ mythology, most often shown holding a pair of torches, a key, snakes or accompanied by dogs and in later periods depicted in triple form. Hecate was the chief goddess presiding over magic and spells. She is often hailed as the triple moon goddess, the mother of the craft. She witnessed the abduction of Demeter's daughter Persephone to the underworld and, torch in hand, assisted in the search for her. Thus, pillars called Hecataea stood at crossroads and doorways, perhaps to keep away evil spirits.
