A venerable scholar of Mithraism, Beck assembles 17 reprinted and original articles from the past three decades that underpin the project to comprehend and describe the Mithraic mysteries more effectively than the traditional methods for studying the culture of classical antiquity seems to afford. His topics include a summary of the mysteries in six propositions, the metamorphosis of the myths from history to fiction, interpreting the Ponza zodiac, the rise and fall of the astral identifications of the Tauroctonous Mithras, and some uses of Hellenistic science in Roman religion. Previously published articles are reproduced with original as well as new page numbers, to facilitate locating references from other works.
