GUEST,Okiemockbird BS: More pagan stuff (118* d) RE: BS: More pagan stuff 28 Apr 00


My earlier statement about mystery religions was imprecise. I should have said that nothing like the mystery cults is so far known from the native British tradition. Of course some of the urban Mediterranean cults -- of Mithras (popular among soldiers) of Serapis, of Cybele, maybe some others -- were imported during the Roman period.

Skarpi, yes--"freedom" is one of our "worship words" here in America (that's a reference to an old Star Trek episode, but seriously meant nevertheless) just as it seems to be for you.
