Over the course of time Olympus diminished in favour of religious experiences. These experiences were provided by the Mysteries – religious movements that were secretly practiced by groups of adherents who decided, to be initiated into the profound realities of one deity or another. In this book, Marvin W. Meyer explores the sacrifices and prayers, the public celebrations and secret ceremonies, the theatrical performances and literary works, the gods and goddesses that were a part of the mystery religions of Greece in the seventh century B.C. to the Judaism and Christianity of the Roman world of the seventh century A.D
