It is indeed surprising to see Mithras represented in the Middle Ages, as we tend to assume that paganism was forgotten at an early date. Well, some representations of Mithras killing the bull in key locations in Europe prove the opposite. To what extent did medieval masons know about the cult of Mithras?

Here are the best known examples:

* Tauroctony of Santo Domingo de Silos
* Tauroctony of Aula Gotica.
