Mithraism and other Roman mystery religions

Birgitta Hoffmann

Away from the demands of the Roman state religions or the continuing traditions of the indigenous population the Roman Empire had room for a large number of personalised religious experiences, the so-called mystery religions, whose cults might make very different demands on the use of any given space. Some of these cults very highly localised, such as Eleusis. Others such as Mithras were spread across the entire Roman Empire.

This course will look at Mithraism and other sites of various mystery religions and explore in how far the written record and the archaeology help us to understand how these religions were practised.
