    The myth of Pan. One of the most widely venerated Satyrs was in fact Pan (or Faunus for the ancients) who – being the sun of Hermes or Dionysius – was actually the god of shepherds (who learned from him the art of masturbation) as well as being god of the wilderness, hunting and folk music. His name came from the ancient Greek paein which derived from the verb “to pasture”. The lifetime of Plutarch (CE ), who took the myth seriously, coincides with the time in which almost all the books of the New Testament were written. Speculation about the death of Pan continued in the Renaissance and afterward. Rabelais thought that Pan was Christ, for 'pan.

In ancient Greek religion and mythology, Pan (/ p æ n /; Ancient Greek: Πάν, romanized: Pán) is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds, rustic music and impromptus, and companion of the nymphs.

He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is also recognized as the god of. Pan the God of the Wild Pan is considered to be one of the oldest of Greek gods. He is associated with nature, wooded areas and pasturelands, from which his name is derived.

The worship of Pan began in rustic areas far from the populated city centers, and therefore, he did. The Victorian and Romantic vision of Pan remains a source of fascination for me Patricia Merivale’s book “Pan the Goat-God: his myth in modern times”, though old, remains – to the best of my knowledge – the essential starting point for a deeper exploration of the subject, along with John Boardman’s “The Great God Pan: the survival of an image”.

Pan idled in the rugged countryside of Arcadia, playing his panpipes and chasing Nymphs. Pan was depicted as a man with the horns, legs and tail of a goat, a thick beard, snub nose and pointed ears.The image of Baphomet (Pan) that is used in modern times was created by French Occultist, Eliphas Levi who had written in “The mysteries of magic;” The Baphomet of the Templars, whose names should be spelt kabbalistically backward, is composed of three abbreviations—TEM OHP AB, Temple omnium hominum pads abbas, the father of the temple.Myths in which Pan succeeds in his erotic pursuits still seem to maintain that “panic love is something violent, a sudden and unforeseen attack” (76).
