I know the Mithras site (since my childhood) at Carrawburgh and have worked at the APX Xanten (Germany) knowing about the Mitras Altar find down the road in Kalkar.

Batava Auxiliary Units where stationed at Xanten and Kalkar until they where transfered in disgrace (after the Batava uprising 69/70AD) to the Vindolanda area.

I was just checking the connection and if the same Batavian Cohort had maybe built and used the two temples and had maybe brought the cult to the area of north England

I was pleasantly surprised to read thie inscription on the other Altar proving a Betavian connection to Mitras at Carrawburgh and to read that evidence points to the lower Rhein area. Although it must not be forgotten that the Betavas home land was in the area of todays Nijmegen in Holland and directly connected to the Northern Lower Rheinarea of Roman Germania Inferior.

The Altar found at Kalkar (not in situ.) is unfortunately dated after the official exodus of the Batavians although the Temple itself has not been found or excavated and the founding of the temple could possibly of an earlier date!

Papa, the Pope in Latin, would be short for Pater Patrum 🤔. It’s a clever statement, if it weren’t for the fact that the term was used to refer to bishops in general long before Pope Siricius. It would come from the Greek πάππας, which also means father, as in the Spanish papa or papá...

Mithras: Geschichte einer Gottheit

I am a devotee of Mithras Thank you for this interview. I think the author is right when he highlights that Roman Mithras is very different to Persian Mitra. Mithras is born mighty from birth and with a connection to His Father. The rock is a symbol of prowess and His Father is Sol. The main rite was centered on celebration of Mithras,’ victory over the bull, the bull which in Rome was similar to a dragon or an animal which normal people cant slay.
