The Roman Cult of Mithras

Link added (both here and under “Ancient Religion (The Mysteries)”) to Robert Pearse’s lovely page on The Roman Cult of Mithras. The site provides a very handy introduction to Mithraism, a subject about which misinformation can be difficult to avoid, and keeps it brisk and clean. Particularly useful are his references throughout to online images of reliefs and frescoes from the Mithraea themselves, since it is precisely this evidence that comprises the massive bulk of our evidence about the Cult of Mithras. Definitely worth a visit!
