Xenia is the ancient Greek concept of hospitality, the generosity and courtesy shown to those who are far from home and/or associates of the person bestowing guest-friendship. The idea originated as the Greeks believed that Gods mingled among humans and would often travel in disguise. Thus, to avoid angering a possible God in disguise, they thought it wise to treat all guests with the courtesy and respect that you would bestow on a heavenly being. Later, the practice of offering hospitality to “humble strangers” or Xenos became a common custom among the Greeks.
