Vesta in myth
Like the other well-known asteroids, Vesta carries the name of a Roman goddess who was the ruler of family life and home.

During the holiday of Vesta, called Vestalia, women were allowed to enter this temple to say their prayers to this goddess. Men were never allowed in.

They were chosen at a young age from six to ten to be in this role for the next 30 years at least.
They were obliged to remain virgins during their priesthood, after which they were granted their freedom.
These women took this great sacrifice because it was considered a great honor, knowing they would probably never get married or have a family.

Vesta, the goddess was considered the purest goddess. She was a virgin and this is why the priestesses were obliged to preserve their chastity.
