The Myth Reading Group meets on ‘Zoom’ on Monday 22 March, 5:30-6:30 pm (UK time). The link to join will be posted in the comments for this post. All are welcome.
This week’s text is taken from Jane Ellen Harrison’s Prolegomena to the Study of Greek Religion (1903). We will read extracts from Harrison’s chapter on Dionysus. The first extract deals with Dionysus’ introduction to Greek religion and the second one explores the god’s association to the bull.
