Product Description

The Mystery Cults often pop up in history books, providing intriguing detail for few sentences before the author moves on. Dedicated entirely to these occult rites and rituals, this handsome book covers the Eleusinian Mysteries, the Mysteries of the Kabeiroi, Dionysus, Private Initiation, Isis, Mithras, and other sacred cults. Looking at these events through an anthropological and archaeological lens, the imagistic/doctrinal dichotomy is explored from historical, literary, and physical evidence left behind. The contents of the ceremonies, who participated, what they meant, and their significance in society is explored through poetry, site excavations, and ethnographic comparisons, for a rich and fulfilling look at these ancient rites. Black and white photographs included. 256 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
