The New Mithraeum is a space devoted to Mithras and Mithraism or, what is the same, to philosophy, religion, society and art of the Antiquity.
Due to the nature of the Mithraic Mysteries, archaeology is the first source from which Mithraeum.eu is nourished. In The New Mithraeum Database (TNMdB), we gather a good part of already existing inventories and documentation of many experts that since Franz Cumont and Maarten Jozef Vermaseren have focused their scope of study to a cult as obtuse as exciting. But we want to go further and also integrate articles and opinions from other disciplines, even extra-academic, that try to fit some of the many lost tiles that compose the Mithraic mosaic.
Mithraeum.eu offers its members a simplified online editor that allows publishing original articles online. The service includes an editing assistant to guarantee a plural but coherent editorial line and a standard quality of each piece available on the site.
The New Mithraeum is structured, like the Mitreo di San Clemente, in several chambers. Some are dedicated to study, others to reflection and meditation, and others to socialization. There are also multi-purpose rooms open to speculation and even some reserved for those who want to go a little further.
The New Mithraeum is a participatory project that aims to contribute to the knowledge of our past to better understand our present.
We remain open to any suggestion or contribution related to research and knowledge sharing about the Mysteries of Mithras. If you have something to propose, do not hesitate to send us a message.
