Religious & Cultural Beliefs of the Raven
To the ancient Greeks and Romans, the raven is closely associated with the god Apollo and goddess Athena. According to folklore, the raven once had feathers as white as snow until the day Apollo sent the raven to spy on his lover Coronis. The raven returned with gossip of Coronis’ unfaithfulness and Apollo cast the bird into a fire, scorching its feathers. This is said to be the reason the raven has its midnight-black feathers.
Christianity also supports a similar lore regarding the raven’s dark coloring. During the flooding of the world, it is said that Noah first sent a raven to confirm that the flood waters had receded. The raven did not return. Noah then sent a Dove and the Lord punished the raven by giving it black feathers, denoting its failure and betrayal to Noah.
