Hello everyone, This is my first post here. I'm seeking for examples in mythology (actually, in any religious story--be it from Greek mythology or the Bible or whatever) of situations where an innocent has been unfairly punished for innocent actions. From my studies, a good example I can think of is the blind Norse god Hod, who was tricked by Loki into killing his brother Balder. Vali, son of Odin, killed Hod to avenge balder's death, even though Hod didn't know what he was doing. Loki, who tricked Hod into killing Balder, was also severely punished for his actions (and other things he did, such as mocking the gods during Aegir's banquet) by being tied up in a cave with his son's intestines and having a poisonous serpent hanging above his head until the day of Ragnarök. It seems however that Odin was actually the one who orchestrated the death of Balder for the purpose of having him ressurect after Ragnarök. I'm looking forward to the examples you people can think of.
