Mi spiegate perché mettete dei volti attuali in un sito di archeologia mitra ?
Grazie. Francesca.

I have been investigating an archaelogical site in the Northern Shenandoah valley of Virginia. TL and C14 dates from iron smelting materials are circa 150 AD.

If this piece could be added, too, please. At the BM: (G69/dc12) Thanks!

 
Probably at home... but I’m at work. ;-) Will get back to you.
 
Beautiful and unexpected piece, Pattie. Thanks for sharing. Do you have any more information about it besides the brief description on the British Museum page? CIMRM maybe?

Hi, I’m a newly converted Greco-Roman pagan who’s deeply interested in Mithraism. Have no idea if I’m in the right place though!

 
Veronica, I surfed onto your profile and would like to assure you that Mithras welcomes everyone. I frankly know of more women worshiping than men... myself included. Feel free to message me if you would like.
 
Dear Veronica, as a woman you cannot attend the ceremonies in the mithraeum. But you can help prepare the feast. You also have a soul, like the slaves. You can therefore hope to ascend to the heavens through the solar cycle, and you will be admitted into Capricorn at the winter solstice. Then your soul will be beautified and purified for six months and it will come out into Gemini and escape from earthly influence to ascend among the gods and goddesses. But if your soul has led an impure life, if you have lacked fervor and courage, if you have not endured your condition and if you have been selfish or dishonest, then you will ascend to the sky towards Saturn, then towards the Moon where you will be prepared to return to Earth. In cancer your soul will be admitted, and you will go down the days. your soul will become heavy and charged with humidity and it will come out on the eve of the winter solstice, in Sagittarius. She wandered among the Manes before integrating a fetus and being reincarnated.
 
Welcome Veronica 💫

Re-interpreting the Mysteries of Mithras

Ernest Renan suggested that without the rise of Christianity, we might all have embraced the cult of Mithras. Nevertheless, it has had a lasting influence on secret societies, religious movements and popular culture.
