Walker Brents III
on the Greek Mystery Religions

walker brentsWalker Talks!  A monthly series of ruminations by Walker Brents on diverse subjects — from individual writers and philosophers, to bits of mythology, epic tales and cultural turning points.

 

Today, Walker will plumb the subject of the Greek mystery religions- eleusinianreliefcults that persisted for centuries and even millennia, each with its own secret rituals, celebrations and belief systems, each centered variously on the likes of Dionysus, Orpheus, Demeter, Persephone, each open only to initiates…

…religions that arose as the history of the gods became the history of the soul.
