No other god of the Greeks is as widely present in the monuments and nature of Greece and Italy, in the sensuous tradition of antiquity, as Dionysos. In myth and image, in visionary experience and ritual representation, the Greeks possessed a complete expression of indestructible life, the essence of Dionysos. In this work, the noted mythologist and historian of religion Carl Kerényi presents a historical account of the religion of Dionysos from its beginnings in the Minoan culture down to its transition to a cosmic and cosmopolitan religion of late antiquity under the Roman Empire. From the wealth of Greek literary, epigraphic, and monumental traditions, Kerényi constructs a picture of Dionysian worship, always underlining the constitutive element of myth. Included in this study are the secret cult scenes of the women's mysteries both within and beyond Attica, the mystic sacrificial rite at Delphi, and the great public Dionysian festivals at Athens. The way in which the Athenian people received and assimilated tragedy in its immanent connection with Dionysos is seen as the greatest miracle in all cultural history. Tragedy and New Comedy are seen as high spiritual forms of the Dionysian religion, and the Dionysian element itself is seen as a chapter in the religious history of Europe.

Prometheus the god stole fire from heaven and bestowed it on humans. In punishment, Zeus chained him to a rock, where an eagle clawed unceasingly at his liver, until Herakles freed him. For the Greeks, the myth of Prometheus's release reflected a primordial law of existence and the fate of humankind. Carl Ker�nyi examines the story of Prometheus and the very process of mythmaking as a reflection of the archetypal function and seeks to discover how this primitive tale was invested with a universal fatality, first in the Greek imagination, and then in the Western tradition of Romantic poetry. Ker�nyi traces the evolving myth from Hesiod and Aeschylus, and in its epic treatment by Goethe and Shelley; he moves on to consider the myth from the perspective of Jungian psychology, as the archetype of human daring signifying the transformation of suffering into the mystery of the sacrifice.

Zauberische dunkle Frauen wie Kirke, Medea und Nemesis auf der einen Seite. Lichtgestalten wie Aphrodite und Hera auf der anderen: Es ist nicht Zeus, zeigt der Mythologe Karl Kerényi, entlang dessen Achse sich das Weltbild der Griechen aufspannt - es sind Helios und Hades. Paradoxien von Tod und Leben, Nacht und Tag, Gut und Böse: Kerényis einfühlsame Prosa folgt den mythischen Frauen durch ein Labyrinth kultureller Bezüge. Ein aufregendes Buch über die Frauenfiguren Griechenlands, die verborgene Logik ihrer Taten, die strenge und doch zauberische Systematik des mythischen Denkens.

Mit den Gottern Griechenlands zahlt der Dionysos zu den Hauptwerken des grossen Altphilologen und Religionsforschers Walter F. Otto. Erstmals 1933 veroffentlicht, ist dieses Buch ein Klassiker der Religionswissenschaft, dessen eindrucksvolle Prosa uber die Fachwelt hinaus Aufsehen erregte. Seine wichtigste These ist die der Doppelgesichtigkeit des Dionysos, eines 'wahnsinnigen' Gottes, der in seinen Epiphanien Gegenwart und Entruckung, Seligkeit und Wildheit, Leben und Tod in sich vereinigt und zusammenhalt und damit die Totalitat der menschlichen Lebenswelt zum Ausdruck bringt. Diese Interpretation hat in der Wissenschaft bis heute Gultigkeit behalten.

What did Zeus mean to the Greeks? And who was Hera, united with Zeus historically and archetypally as if they were a human pair? C. Kerenyi fills a gap in our knowledge of the religious history of Europe by responding to these questions. Examining the word Zeus and its Greek synonyms theos and daimon, the author traces the origins of Greek religion in the Minoan-Mycenacan civilization. He shows how Homer's view of the gods decisively shaped the literary and artistic tradition of Greek divine mythology. The emergence of the Olympian family is seen as the expression of a humane Zeus cult determined by the father image but formed within the domain of Hera. Originally published in 1976.
