Description:

Just hundred years after the first edition of Albrecht Dietrich's Eine Mithrasliturgie (Leipzig 1903; 1923), the present book offers a complete new edition of so complex a text. It provides the Greek text, an English translation, a punctual introduction, an extensive commentary, an index of Greek words and of the various voces magicae, and, finally, also an appendix, with photographic reproductions of the papyrus. . Not only Hans Dieter Betz is one of the most gifted scholars in the domain of primeval Christianity and Hellenistic religions, but he already devoted to the Mithras Liturgy a monographic essay, which is here enriched and largely supplemented. We particularly appreciated how Betz deals with the critical debate which spread from Dietrich's book (in particular the criticism put forward by one of the most important scholars of Mithraism, the Belgian Franz Cumont) and how he sets Dietich in the historical and cultural milieu of his age.?

Synopsis: The author provides the first complete English commentary on one of the most important texts of the history of religions in late antiquity: the so-called "Mithras Liturgy", a magic Graeco-Egyptian papyrus from the 4th century A.D., written from the inner perspective by an initiated devotee of the god Helios-Mithras-Aion and containing an esoteric ritual instruction for an ascension to and consultation with the god.

In addition to an introduction into the history of research since Albrecht Dieterich's famous work "Eine Mithrasliturgie" (1903), the volume contains the Greek text and the English translation, an analysis of the literary composition, and a commentary establishing the text and contextualizing it in relation to Egyptian religion, Mithraism, hermeticism and gnosticism. At the end of the book there is a bibliography and a Greek word-index.

About the Author: Hans D. Betz, Geboren 1931; Studium der ev. Theologie in Bethel, Mainz und Cambridge (GB); 1957 Promotion; 1966 Habilitation; 1963-78 Professor of New Testament an der School of Theology in Claremont, CA; 1978-2000 Shailor Mathews Professor of New Testament Studies, University of Chicago; 2000 emeritus.
