Goddess Isis, loving wife, and mother

Although Christianity may have been the first religion to put love at its center and create not just a loving God but a God who urged his worshippers to love each other, Isiacism was in some ways its forerunner as a religion of comfort and kindness.

Isis was, according to Isis historian R. E. Witt, unique amongst pagan deities in her affection and compassion. ‘Moved by your prayer I come to you,’ she says to Lucius in The Golden Ass.

Isis was a loving wife and mother. Statues showing her son Horus suckling at her breast directly influenced later images of Jesus and Mary.
