Cupid and Psyche: Teasing Meanings from Text Cover this source using academic books and papers that discuss how it was interpreted in antiquity. Some questions are listed below: In antiquity the myth of Cupid and Psyche (from the Metamorphoses) could have a religious meaning. Rings bearing their likeness may have served an amuletic purpose. The allegorical pairing depicts perfection of human love in integrated embrace of body and soul. Is this broader interpretation well supported in antiquity? The story tells of the quest for love and trust between Eros and Psyche. Aphrodite was jealous of the beauty of mortal Psyche. Aphrodite imposes a series of difficult tasks on Psyche, which she is able to achieve by means of supernatural assistance. What conclusions can be drawn about the nature of how the gods can help humans. Is this part of the narrative similar to the story of the Labors of Hercules? After successfully completing these tasks, Aphrodite relents and Psyche becomes immortal to live alongside her husband Eros. Together they had a daughter, Voluptas or Hedone (meaning physical pleasure, bliss). Is this similar or different to the view of love expressed in the Bible (https://www.patheos.com/blogs/christiancrier/2015/05/20/what-is-eros-love-in-the-bible-a-bible-study/)? In the Gnostic narrative found in On the Origin of the World, Eros, during the universe’s creation, is scattered among the creatures of Chaos, existing between the midpoint of light and darkness as well as the angels and people. Later, Psyche pours her blood upon him, causing the first rose to sprout up on the Earth, followed by every flower and herb. This passage is unclear, how might it have been interpreted by the Gnostics? Did early Christian authors know of this myth, and if so, did they associate it with Biblical texts?
