June 14th (Minerva and Jagannath Day)

In ancient Rome, the goddess Minerva (patroness of wisdom and the arts, and deity of battle) was honored annually on June 14th at her sacred festival, the Lesser Quinquatrus of Minerva.







In India, this is a day sacred to Jagannath, a benevolent incarnation of the god Vishnu. An annual festival in honor of him is celebrated in the city of Puri on the East Coast of India.
