Mithras: A Roman God in London
Mithras: A Roman God in London
Lecture - Ruth Clydesdale
In a dark cave, a man straddling a bull plunges a dagger into it. A dog and a snake leap to lick its blood, while a scorpion grips its testicles. This image is the centrepiece of Mithraism, a mystery cult of the Roman Empire. Here in London the Walbrook Mithraeum has been superbly restored and opened to visitors in 2017. Tonight's illustrated lecture delves into the rituals and meanings of this god's worship. Ruth Clydesdale is an independent researcher and lecturer on art, religion and their links to ancient philosophies. She returns to Treadwell's at our invitation.
