Tying up the gods

Sitting on Dover docks, waiting for a ferry, I was passing the time by reading the BBC History Magazine. An article caught my eye as it involved a practice of the ancient Greeks and Romans of punishing their gods by tying them up. Part of the article went like this,

local communities decided to punish or detain gods by binding them with chains- in one case to a cross.

The goddess Artemis bound

artemis-kindyas

Gods where treated this way to prevent them from defecting to adversaries or to punish them for helping an enemy of for failing to help a community.

This is the first that I have heard of this ritual and it does a certain question. Are gods and goddesses subs or are subs gods and goddesses? 🙂
