I'm looking to get into a deeper study of the ancient Greek mystery cults (Eleusinian Mysteries and Orphism primarily, but if I'm missing others, any pointers are welcome), and I would appreciate reading material suggestions.

Hello there,

You could take a look at:

The Road to Eleusis: Unveiling the Secret of the Mysteries- R. Gordon Wasson, Carl A. P. Ruck and Albert Hofmann
Eleusis and the Eleusinian Mysteries- George E. Mylonas
Dionysus: Myth and Cult- Walter F. Otto
Mysteries of Demeter : Rebirth of the Pagan Way- Jennifer Reif (Though this isn't an academic text and is more of a "How to" book on creating a modern cult of Demeter based upon her mysteries, still might be worth a look)


“Only a dog barks guests away from his own door.”
