The Dionysian Mysteries were a ritual of ancient Greece and Rome which used intoxicants and other trance-inducing techniques (like dance and music) to remove inhibitions and social constraints, liberating the individual to return to a natural state. It also provided some liberation for those marginalized by Greek society: women, slaves and foreigners. In their final phase the Mysteries shifted their emphasis from a chthonic, underworld orientation to a transcendental, mystical one, with Dionysus changing his nature accordingly. By its nature as a mystery religion reserved for the initiated, many aspects of the Dionysian cult remain unknown and were lost with the decline of Greco-Roman polytheism; modern knowledge is derived from descriptions, imagery and cross-cultural studies.

  • Os mistérios dionisíacos ou cultos dionisíacos eram ritos religiosos dedicados ao deus grego Dioniso. Destacavam-se por serem cultos que contradiziam e ultrapassavam a ordem social e humana convencional, ao contrário dos aos outros deuses, que cumpriam o papel de reforçar e sacralizar os valores da cidade grega.Nos rituais a Dioniso o devoto experienciava a alteridade, o contato com a figura do Outro, encontrando dentro de si, através do transe, uma expressão que divergia da experiência cotidiana e ordinária. Na experiência dionisíaca, o aspecto dual – o masculino e o feminino, o selvagem e o civilizado etc – que confere racionalidade e coerência à realidade consensual se desfaz, os opostos fundem-se, e assim também o homem funde-se aos deuses e à natureza.
  • Der Dionysoskult ist der Kult um Dionysos, griechischer Gott des Weines und der Fruchtbarkeit, und einer der zahlreichen Mysteriengötter der antiken Welt, deren Kulte sich gegenseitig beeinflussen und deren Wesen nicht genau abgegrenzt werden kann.
