Recently I mentioned the Greek god Dionysus in one of my posts and so I was happy to see this article appear in my blog feed. What is fascinating about it is the fact that Christian themes have been super imposed over the pagan god Dionysus. The blending of Christianity with paganism was not uncommon. I believe the motive was to help people ease into Christianity without wiping out pagan holidays entirely. Anyway, this is a very interesting piece and I hope my readers enjoy it. Thanks History of the Ancient World!
