Are there still Hellenists? Leaders of the movement claimed in 2005 that there are as many as 2,000 adherents to the Hellenic tradition in Greece, with an additional 100,000 who have “some sort of interest”. No official estimates exist for devotees worldwide.
What is the symbol of Hellenism? The dodecagram, or twelve pointed star, is one of the more widespread symbols of Hellenismos. The twelve points represent the twelve Olympic Gods and thus the symbol serves its purpose as a dedicational symbol well.
When did worship of Greek gods end? The short answer is the classical Greek religion we recognize as Greek mythology came to an end in the 9th century in the Mani Peninsula area of Greece when the last pagans were converted.
Why do people no longer worship Greek gods? The Greek gods are no longer worshipped because the spread of Christianity made the worship of pagan gods illegal. As Christianity spread through Europe, Greek and Roman polytheism became less and less popular. Eventually, paganism was outlawed completely.
