The God who Comes: Dionysian Mysteries Revisited
Algora Publishing, 01.01.2003 - 204 Seiten
The Eleusinian Mysteries were the most widely acclaimed and influential religious cult in the ancient Greek world. For almost 2000 years, the Mystery Rites of Dionysos and associated Hellenic deities drew participants from Rome, Egypt and all around the Mediterranean, influencing and inspiring many of the greatest minds including Aristotle, Homer and Plutarch. The God Who Comes is a meticulously researched exploration of how and why these rites were performed, based upon archaeological, scholarly, and iconographic evidence - a refutation of facile New Age inventions.
