The Mysteries of Mithras PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Mysteries of Mithras free pdf The Mysteries Of Mithras presents a revival of the magical practices and initiatory system of Mithraism, the ancient Roman mystery religion that was immensely popular in the Roman Legions from the late second century B.C. until A.D. 400 and was taken to every corner of the Roman Empire. As the last pagan state religion in Europe, it was the most important competitor to early Christianity and heavily influenced Christian doctrine and symbolism. The parallels between Christianity and ancient Mithraism are striking - for example, the god Mithras was born of a virgin in a cave on December 25. Payam Nabarz reveals the history, origins and spiritual and philosophical tenets of Mithraism and its connections to Christianity, Islam and Freemasonry. He, also, describes the modern neo-pagan practice of Mithraism in evidence today and for readers who wish to adopt the Mithraic path, he includes seven of its initiatory rituals and meditations, as well as orations and teaching tales, that open the door to the seven Mithraic grades of passage.
