Between the 1st and 4th centuries, Mithraism developed throughout the Roman world. Much material exists, but textual evidence is scarce. The only ancient work that fills this gap is Porphyry's intense and complex essay.
A place of worship for the Roman god of light Mithras was discovered during archaeological excavations in Trier. This includes a larger relief.
Las excavaciones llevadas a cabo en el yacimiento arqueológico romano de la villa de Mithra, en Cabra (Córdoba), han deparado el excepcional hallazgo de un mitreo, o zona destinada al culto al dios Mithra, cuya estatua fue descubierta hace unos 70 años.
On the occasion of the exhibition, the Royal Museum of Mariemont invites five experts from Europe to emulate the research on the cult of Mithras.
Despite the current political landscape of the US, we can look to antiquity to see that the red cap was actually once a symbol of citizenship and welcome to the foreigner.
