Chapter 90, Isis (after Apuleius) Summary and Analysis

The Romans celebrated Isis and erected many temples to her. The Roman writer Apuleius wrote of his travels in Metamorphoses or The Golden Ass in the second century B.C. In his passages he describes his plea for help from Isis when he finds himself trapped in the form of a donkey.

Isis rises from the sea and declares, "I am Nature, Mother of All." Apuleius prays to Isis, "All other deities, whether bountiful or merciless, do reverence to Thee. It is Isis who rules the world..." He promises to always remember her help and keep her in his heart.
