The origins of Saturday Sabbath


Saturday is the seventh day of the week upon the Gregorian Calendar. It was named after the planet within the 2nd century by the Romans. The planet               was named for the Roman god of agriculture. It has been called dies Saturni ("Saturn's Day"), through which has evolved into Old English as Saterdaeg and gradually evolved into the word "Saturday."

Cronus - Greek Mythology

In Greek Mythology              was worshiped as a harvest deity, overseeing crops such as grains, nature and agriculture. He was usually depicted with a sickle, which he used to harvest crops and which was also the weapon he used to castrate and depose Uranus. Cronus is associated with the Roman god Saturn.

Rhea is giving her husband Cronus a stone surrounded in diapers instead of his son Zeus to devour. This work, made between centuries I & III, is in the base of a stone statue in the Capitolino Museum of Rome.
