The New Mithraeum is a space dedicated to Mithras and Mithraism or, in other words, to philosophy, religion, society and art of Antiquity.
Due to the nature of the Mithraic Mysteries, archaeology is the main source of Mithraeum.eu. The New Mithraeum Database (TNMdB) collects a large part of already existing inventories and documentation of many experts who since Franz Cumont and Maarten Jozef Vermaseren have focused their of study to this topic. The New Mithraeum also integrates articles and opinions from other disciplines, even extra-academic, that try to fit together some of the many lost tesserae that make up the Mithraic mosaic.
Mithraeum.eu offers its members a simplified online editor that allows them to publish original articles. The service includes an editing assistant to ensure a plural but consistent editorial line and a standard quality of each piece available on the site.
The New Mithraeum is structured, like the Mithraeum of San Clemente, in several rooms. Some are dedicated to study, others to reflection and meditation, others to conviviality. 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 are open to suggestions and contributions related to research and exchange of knowledge about the Mysteries of Mithras. If you have something to propose, do not hesitate to send us a message.
