GABIJA (pronounced GA-bee-jah) is the Lithuanian Goddess of fire and the hearth. As GABJAUJA, she was also Goddess of corn and other grains. When a follower laid out a fire or a meal, they would give an offering to Gabija as well--water for a fire, and beer for a meal. Gabija's fire protected the home from thieves and demons, and could only be put out with pure water. With the advent of Christianity, Gabija was identified with St. Agnes. Her name is also seen as GABIETA or GABETA.
