⇒♩ Introduction. Definition of Psychopomp and Sketch of this post:

A Psychopomp is a god, spirit, or demon who is responsible for guiding the spirits of the dead on their journey to the underworld. His role is not to judge the deceased, but simply to provide safe passage. The word comes from the GreekÂ Â Â ÏˆÏ…Ï‡ÎżÏ€ÎżÎŒÏ€ÏŒÏ‚, which means “conductor of souls.” Psycho– (ÏˆÏ…Ï‡Îż) originally meant “of, or relating to the soul,” while pomps (Ï€ÎżÎŒÏ€ÏŒÏ‚) meant “guide” or “conductor.”

Classical examples of a Psychopomp are the ancient Egyptian god Anubis, the Greek ferryman Charon, Hermes and Hecate, the Roman god Mercury (equivalent: Hermes in Greek Mythology) and Archangel Gabriel in the Catholic religion, to name the most important ones.

Firstly, in the first section (I), letÂŽs look at some examples of Psychopomps in Mythology.
