THE MARSI WERE AN ANCIENT CENTRAL ITALIAN TRIBE WHO TRACED THEIR LINEAGE FROM" MARSUS, "THE SON OF "CIRCE". THEIR CHIEF DEITY WAS HIS DAUGHTER, "ANGITIA," THEIR PRIMARY GODDESS WAS HIS DAUGHTER. SHE A SNAKE CHARMING SORCERESS WHO LEARNED HER CRAFT DIRECTLY FROM "CIRCE". SHE WAS A SISTER OF "MEDE"A AND "CIRCE". "ANGITIA" RULED OVER HEALING AND WITCHCRAFT. AND WAS RENOWNED FOR HER VERBAL AND HERBAL CHARMS.

"ANGITIA" HAD A TEMPLE AND A SACRED GROVE ON THE SHORES OF "LAKE FUCINO". THE MARSI HONORED HER BY DRAPING HER STATUE WITH LIVE SNAKES AS A SYMBOL OF HEALING AND CARRYING HER TO THE SHORES OF THE LAKE. IN RETURN, "ANGITIA" WOULD PROTECT AND HEAL HER WORSHIPPERS, ALSO TEACHING THEM HOW TO CHARM SNAKES, CURE SNAKEBITES, AND USE HERBS FOR HEALING.

WHEN THE ROMANS CONQUERED THE MARSI, CHRISTIAN AUTHORITIES BANISHED ALL PAGAN RELIGIONS AND WORSHIP OF "ANGITIA" WAS SUPPRESSED. HOWEVER, SOME OF HER RITUALS DID SURVIVE AND ARE NOW DEDICATED TO SAN DOMENICO, THE SAINT NOW WORSHIPPED IN THE TOWNS THAT WERE ONCE ASSOCIATED WITH THE MARSI.
