Roots

The Roman god of drunken BACCANALIA has a sober past. BACCHUS is a Greek diety with ancient pagan roots. Like most key man-gods of the Near Eastern mystery cults, this demigod is a dead male. The “Green god” resurrected every spring, but apparently Bacchus’ death was something to drown one’s sorrow over with some good wine. The accessive weeping over Bacchus dominates the original cultic ritual, which the Romans modified into a drunken Hell’s Angels funeral. בכות    BaKHOOS or BaKHOOT, weeping in Edenic, appears in Genesis. 35:8, so a tearful link to Bacchus seems strong.


Branches

Some fundamentalist Christiansare unhappy with the paintings of women mourning Jesus as another echo of Near Eastern mystery faiths.  For more on the Bet-Khuph-Hey root, see VOCALIZE
