Kenneth Sylvan Guthrie

Employing all the available data & survivals of the historic Persio-Roman Mithraics. Embodying versions of Zoroastrian Scriptures; Combining the religions of all races & times...

Mithraic Mysteries Restored and Modernised: A Drama of Inner Initiation is a book by Kenneth Sylvan Guthrie that explores the ancient Mithraic religion and its relevance in modern times. The Mithraic religion was a mystery cult that was popular in the Roman Empire from the 1st to the 4th century AD. The cult worshipped the god Mithras, who was associated with the sun and believed to have the power to grant immortality to his followers.

In this book, Guthrie provides a detailed account of the Mithraic religion, including its beliefs, rituals and symbols. He also discusses the role of initiation in the Mithraic cult, which involved a series of trials and challenges designed to test the initiate's courage and determination.

Guthrie then explores the relevance of the Mithraic religion in modern times, arguing that its teachings and practices can be adapted to help individuals achieve spiritual growth and self-realisation. He presents a dramatic retelling of the Mithraic initiation ceremony, which he believes can serve as a powerful tool for personal transformation and enlightenment.

Overall, Mithraic Mysteries Restored and Modernised is a thought-provoking and insightful book that sheds light on an often overlooked aspect of the ancient religion and offers a fresh perspective on how its teachings can be applied in the modern world.

Using all the available data and surviving historical Persian-Roman Mithraic texts, which are versions of the Zoroastrian scriptures, it combines the religions of all peoples and times with the best of modern spiritual thought, with experiments for every day of the year.
