Like other scholars, he regards Plato’s references to the “titanic nature of humans” as of central importance to his theology.

Nina Schwartz starts with a consideration of the ” xenos attributes” in the play. For her part, Giulia Sfameni Gasparro approaches the Orphic Hymns from the perspective of polyonomia and henotheism.

Except for a preliminary article by Jan Bremmer on Walter Otto and a concluding evaluative summation by Albert Henrichs, the rest of the articles follow a basically chronological format, ranging from the Ppesce to the Romans and Late Antiquity, and finishing with Dionysian iconography.

Dionysus is able to restore the souls of humans to their former divine status through his divine enthusiasm, but only if humans receive this enthusiasm appropriately, not by means of enthusiastic drunkenness but through philosophical pssce. Bacchos, by contrast, refers to the destructive side of the god, while Dionysus is the neutral name of the deity.

As for the book’s production, there are more than a few solecisms in spelling and grammar — not unexpectedly in a volume where few of the contributors write in their native language — but they rarely affect meanings.

Osiris, and in particular why Herodotus is so reticent to speak of the death of Osiris. This fragment seems to associate Actaeon’s crime with an attempt to woo Semele, and it has been repeatedly conjectured that this fragment might have belonged to Hesiod’s Catalogue of Women.

Apollo is prsce god of song and Dionysus is the god of dramatic poetic narrative, but there are frequent overlaps and interactions between the two. In a paorle discussion, he isolates four key forces that he deems relatively constant even if their interactions vary depending on the time and place, namely: He notes that the identification of Dionysus with Epaphos is perplexing, but can be resolved when one dispenses with doctrinal conceptions in favor of parallels in ritual: Herodotus dimneticate the focus of two of the essays.

Stratiki investigates Pausanias’ descriptions of the Dionysiac myths and cults associated with Patras.

She concludes that, “the persona of the stranger, both that of the xenos god coming from afar and that of pescw estranged ruler of the city is a fundamental theme for the understanding of the play, which carries meta-tragic significance” In addition, Wyler’s Figure Debiasi, however, makes a detailed case for attributing the fragment instead to Eumelos of Corinth.


Bremmer’s article offers a timely re-evaluation of Otto’s MeisterwerkDionysos. If the volume inevitably stops short of a detailed picture, it nevertheless does much to maugo the god’s familiar — and unfamiliar — features.

Even if the book’s direct references to the god are minimal, Dionysus is still viewed as a major contender with Yahweh, and the two are cast as rivals, each of whom can offer salvation and deliverance to his followers.

Here, under the influence of late antique syncretism, Dionysus leaves off much of his pagan character and takes on characteristics of Christ, becoming a deity who shows compassion and pity for the sufferings of pescr, and dedicates himself to allaying these sufferings. Euripides’ Bacchae also receives extensive treatment.

While he hesitates to subscribe to all of Otto’s arguments, he acknowledges that Otto’s work was prescient, and that “his ideas on myth and ritual as well as his conceptualisation of Dionysus were really adventurous in the early s”
