Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986) [Book jacket] "Roma Mater combines Celtic myth with our distant memories of Roman Britain and adds a magic of its own: Ys, daughter of Carthage on the coast of Brittany, ruled by the magic of The Nine and the might of the King, their Husband. How The Nine conspired with their gods to bring him to them, though he belonged to Mithras and to Rome, is only the beginning of the story . . . " [Refs. to Mithraism throughout novel, not in DB. Mithraism is one of the main cultural/religious groups in the novel.]
Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986); pg. 1. Pg. 1: "At noon upon that Birthday of Mithras, the sun blazed low in an ice-clear heaven. As Gratillonius looked south, he saw its brilliance splinter into rainbow shards amidst his eyelashes. " [Opening words of the novel.]; Pg. 2: "Because the day was holy, he had not yet taken food, nor would he until the Mystery at eventide, and hunger somehow spurred awareness of his own strength... He raised his arms and began the office--soft-voiced, because such was seemly and it would be his heart that the God heard--' Hail, Mithras Unconquered, Saviour, Warrior, Lord, born unto us anew and forever--' "; Pg. 3: "Insolent knave indeed, Gratillonius knew. He sagged a little, inwardly. Of course he was dealing with a Christian. Most legionaries were, these days, or pretended to be. This very year the rescript had arrived that banned the old faiths, along with tales of how the authorities were despoiling Mithraic temples first. "
Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986); pg. 15. "Perhaps in awe, the reavers had spared the Mithraeum. Thus it stood alone on a knoll near the ditch, only brush surrounding its temenos... As it did not before the Lord of the Christians . . . but they welcomed women to their services, passed fleetingly through Gratillonius. His father, his brother, himself followed Mithras; but his mother had been Christian and so, by amicable agreement, were his sisters raised. "
Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986); pg. 46. "But Mithras be thanked that first he got this brief voyage. "
Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986); pg. 60. "Nothing could be done for the children except to beseech that Mithras--or Christ, or whatever Gods had stood over their cradles--would at least receive their weary spirits. "
Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986); pg. 65. "Certainly this land clung unhindered to its own old ways. Cynan had been right; Christianity was a religion for towns. Frequently Gratillonius spied a cella, a Celtic temple. Even smaller than a Mithraeum, it consisted of a single square room... "
Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986); pg. 71. Pg. 71: "He didn't think Ahriman would deign to employ mere spooks, and in any event they must flee from the light of Ahura-Mazda which Mithras bore. He could not understand why otherwise rational people had all those vague superstitions about Ys. "; Pg. 218: "His Queens--Nobody remained but Fennalis, and she was the mother of Lanarvilis. Flat-out against the Law of Mithras, to lie with both daughter and mother. "
Mithraism Roman Empire 300 C.E. Anderson, Poul & Karen Anderson. The King of Ys: Roma Mater. New York: Baen (1986); pg. 449. "Mithraism: Little is known today about the doctrines of this religion. We present those which we are reasonably well attested. Their parallels to Christianity were remarked upon at the time, in writings which survive, and are presumably due to common origins of the ideas in question. As for the rites, there is virtually no record, aside from some propagandistic Christian references. Out of these we have taken what looks plausible, and added thereto a good deal of conjecture. "
Mithraism Roman Empire 350 C.E. Anthony, Piers. Vision of Tarot. New York: Berkley Books (1985; 1st ed. 1980); pg. 199. "Rome never conquered Persia, but the Persian religion bid fair to conquer Rome. Except for the competition of Christianity! The two religions soon became rivals for the spiritual domination of the Empire.

Mithraism had a lot going for it with its essential monotheism and magic. But its exclusion of women weakened it. Christianity did not treat women well, but at least it allowed them to join. Thus the man of the family might worship Mithra, while his wife had to be ocntent with the religion that would accept her, however grudgingly. Slowly and subtly, Christianity gained. "

Mithraism Roman Empire 350 C.E. Anthony, Piers. Vision of Tarot. New York: Berkley Books (1985; 1st ed. 1980); pg. 199. "Jesus and Brother Paul came to stand in a Mithraic chapel in the city of Rome. It was a subterranean vault, lighted only by a torch. Its chief feature was a mangificent carving of a bull-slaying scene, brilliantly colored. There were several altars, one of which was evidently used for the sacrifice of birds. There were benches of stone with space allowed for kneeling during the service. The chapel was small, but well made.

'This is pagan, yet I would not condemn it,' Jesus decided. 'Worship should be an internal experience rather than a public display, and this private chapel is a step in the right direction. I wish I could talk to these people, and tell them of--'

There was a noise. 'I think they're coming,' Brother Paul said.

but it was not a body of worshipers who came. A mob of Roman soldiers charged in. They overturned the altars and attacked the great bas-relief carving with hammers. In moments they had destroyed the chapel. "

Mithraism Roman Empire 350 C.E. Anthony, Piers. Vision of Tarot. New York: Berkley Books (1985; 1st ed. 1980); pg. 199. "'...Who has done this thing?'

They soon found out. The Christians had done it. They had made a deal with Gracchus, the Urban Prefect of Rome. Persecution of the Mithraists followed throughout the Empire, and the religion was essentially shut down in favor of Christianity.

'But this is not my way!' Jesus protested. 'Religion is inseparable from morality. How can there be persecutions of others in my name?'

Yet it was so. Other religions shared the fate of Mithra, and Christianity was supreme in Rome. "

Mithraism Roman Empire 350 C.E. Anthony, Piers. Vision of Tarot. New York: Berkley Books (1985; 1st ed. 1980); pg. 198-199. "Now the center of the stage was Rome, and Rome was in a centuries-long struggle against the empire of Persia to the east... for a time Rome governed sections of Asia Minor, importing their slaves, soldiers, and merchants into the Imperial City. With these people came their religion: Mithraism, the faith of the Magi, later called 'magicians.' They worshipped earth, fire, water, winds, sun and moon; and men completely dominated this religion. Perhaps for this reason, Mithraism spread like wildfire through the Roman Empire after its two-thousand year quiescence and sometime persecution of Asia. "
Mithraism Roman Empire 359 C.E. Anderson, Poul. The Boat of a Million Years. New York: Tor (1989); pg. 33. "A hunchbacked beggar whined for alms in the name of Christ and then, when likewise ignored, tried Jupiter, Mithras, Isis, the Great Mother, and Celtic Epona... "

"If you claim to believe, as we do, that this god is just as good as that one, what you are really saying is that gods in general don't matter at all. Our live-and-let-live policy toward the worship of Mithra and Dagon and Baal and all the other deities whose temples thrive in Roma is a tacit admission of that view. "
Mithraism United Kingdom 700 C.E. Vance, Jack. Lyonesse: Madouc. Lancaster, PA: Underwood-Miller (1989); pg. 2. "...while the Danaans introduced the more wholesome Aryan pantheon. With the Romans came Mithraism, Christianity, Parsh, the worship of Zoroaster, and a dozen other similar sects. "

"Recently the quality of Arta, or righteousness, has been turned into a god, while the deva Mithra has never been entirely expunged from the Zoroastrian faith because, as my last living contemporary cousin says most piously, 'Is Mithra not the sun? And is not the sun the sign of the Wise Lord?' So, slyly, one by one, the devils return. What man wants to worship, he will worship. "
