Cosmic Mysteries of Mithras

Cosmic Mysteries of Mithras | Mysteries of the Ancient World | Scoop.it

he ancient Roman religion known as the Mithraic mysteries has captivated the imaginations of scholars for generations. There are two reasons for this fascination. First, like the other ancient "mystery religions," such as the Eleusinian mysteries and the mysteries of Isis, Mithraism maintained strict secrecy about its teachings and practices, revealing them only to initiates.

 

As a result, reconstructing the beliefs of the Mithraic devotees has posed an enormously intriguing challenge to scholarly ingenuity. Second, Mithraism arose in the Mediterranean world at exactly the same time as did Christianity, and thus the study of the cult holds the promise of shedding vital light on the cultural dynamics that led to the rise of Christianity.

Oracles Past and Present: Our Means of Managing Information | Anthropology in Practice, Scientific American Blog Network

Oracles Past and Present: Our Means of Managing Information | Anthropology in Practice, Scientific American Blog Network | Mysteries of the Ancient World | Scoop.it
We live in an amazing time: We never have to wait to know. At this very moment you could be on a smart mobile device, in which you have available nearly the sum of all human knowledge at your fingertips —think of the means you have in your pocket!

I’m willing to bet our capacity to find and share information would make citizens of the Ancient World jealous. When the mysteries of the world still loomed large, people from all walks of life travelled great distances—or sent delegates—to seek answers from a source that they believed was plugged into the Universe: Oracles.. First, they had to get to the Oracle, which in itself was a challenge because travel wasn’t easy. Then they had to present their case to priests who would determine if the question was worthy of the Oracle. So they could have travelled all that way for nothing because the priests could turn them away. If the question was approved, however, then they were prepped to meet the Oracle, and the gift accepted. Only after being properly prepared, were they granted an audience with the Oracle so they could pose your question. Travelers were then supposed to go home and implement whatever edict she had issued. And there was no real guarantee of success—there was always a small chance that they had misunderstood the Oracle and did something wrong, and then their efforts would be for naught.
