Martiana of Sartrix has started a fundraiser to create a new translation of Hesiod’s Theogony including various scholia, which are often omitted from translations. As I’ve said many times before, we need polytheists to spearhead efforts to study the sources and material that define our religions and spiritual practices, so do support her!


A little while ago, I began one of my more ambitious projects, a new translation of Hesiod’s Theogony, together with the rich (but hitherto untranslated) ancient scholia, or explanatory comments, which show us how the poem was understood and taught in antiquity.

I am currently fundraising to be able to complete this translation, which will be used by the Hermetic House of Life discord server for their reading weekly group. The text will be placed in the public domain, freely available to be read and reproduced.

The goal is to raise 900$ between ko-fi and Patreon, which would cover the translation of both the Theogony and all the scholia. Should that goal be surpassed, I’ll also start to tackle the ancient Glosses on the Theogony.
