    Dionysos. Mythos und Kultus E–book/E–pub This is an extraordinary book Prof Otto attempts to look at Dionysus as the object of Greek religious devotion rather than simply as a functional vegetation god or god of wine He avoided the reductionist approach of many other classicists and tried to tease out the personality of the god and show how it manifested itself in all his attributes The book is not without flaws sometimes the reader is not sure whether Prof Otto is describing g

Otto Della Grecia» dimostra l'intrinseca connessione di mito e culto nella religione greca classica un aspetto di uel. All of antiuity extolled Dionysus as the god who gave man wine However he was also known as the raving god whose presence makes men mad and incites him to savagery and even to lust for blood He was the confidant and companion of the spirits of the deadflowers of spring bore witness to him too The ivy the pine the fig tree were dear to him Yet far above all these blessings in the natural world of vegetation stood the gift of the vineDionysus was the god of the most blessed ecstasy and the most enraptured love But he was also the persecuted god the suffering and dying god and all whom he loved all who attended him had to share his tragic fate The god who sends the mind reeling the god who appears to mankind in the most urgent immediacy is welcomed and feted by the women in an absolute ecstasy and excess of rapture They respond to his coming with the behavior of the insane The myth tells again and again how his fury ripped them loose of their peaceful domesticity from the humdrum orderly activities of their daily lives for the purpose of making them into dancers in the wilderness and the loneliness of the mountains where they find him and rage through the night as members of his revel rout The visage of every true god is the visage of a world There can be a god who is mad only if there is a mad world which reveals itself through him Where is this world Can we still find it Can we appreciate its nature His presence awakens a sense of urgency ecstasy and terror in the hearts of all within his vicinity For what can one do when Dionysus arrives and one is confronted with a stark awareness of the perplexing nature of reality but fall back in euphoria or else lose touch in a transitory insanity The Eternal Enigmas of Duality and Paradox Madness dwells in the surge of clanging shrieking and peaking sounds it dwells also in silence The women who follow Dionysus get their name maenads from this madness Possessed by it they rush off whirl madly in circles or stand still as if turned into stone It is true that the world of the other gods are not without Paradox But none of these worlds is as disrupted by it as the world of Dionysus He the nurturer and the god of rapture he the god who is forever praised as the giver of wine which removes all sorrow and care he the deliverer and healer the delight of mortals the god of many joys the dancer and ecstatic lover the bestower of riches the benefactor this god who is the most delightful of all the gods is also the most frightful No single Greek god even approaches Dionysus in the horror of his epithets which bear witness to a savagery that is absolutely without mercy In fact one must evoke the memory of all the monstrous horror of eternal darkness to find anything at all comparable He is called the render of men the eater of raw flesh who delights in the sword and bloodshed Correspondingly we hear not only of human sacrifice in his cult but also of the ghastly ritual in which a man is torn to pieces The madness which is called Dionysus is no sickness no debility in life but a companion of life at its healthiest It is the tumult which erupts from its innermost recesses when they mature and force their way to the surface It is the madness inherent in the womb of the mother This attends all moments of creation constantly changes ordered existence into chaos and ushers in primal salvation and primal pain and in both the primal wildness of being The final secrets of existence and non existence transfix mankind with monstrous eyesthis spirit of duality which distinguishes Dionysusis the source of the fascination and the confusion which everything that is Dionysiac evokes for it is the spirit of a wild being His coming brings madness An intoxicated god a mad god Truly an idea which demands our deepest thought by Walter F Otto from Dionysus Myth and Cult The nature of Dionysus and illuminating Nietzsche s ideas on the nature of tragedy and it s connection to human greatness also why Nietzsche was consistently enraptured with Dionysus The Tragic Disposition There is only one hope and one guarantee for the future of that which is human it lies in this that the tragic disposition shall not perish What suffering this race must have endured in order to create such beauty Direct self observation is not nearly sufficient for us to know ourselves we need history for the past flows on within us in a hundred waves
