Eleusinian Mysteries & Rites

by Dudley Wright Author

The most famous of the secret religious rites of ancient Greece, the Eleusinian Mysteries were initiation ceremonies held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone at Eleusis. In this historical text, Dudley Wright - who wrote widely on subjects such as vampires and Freemasonry during his times - provides a concise account of the Eleusinian rituals, incantations, prayers, and songs. These rites served as inspiration for countless religious and cult ceremonies and rituals to come, and you can learn in this text how these mysterious rites influenced Greek culture, the Greek mythological resurgence, and our religious culture today.
