Platon and the Mysteries


And I conceive that the founders of the mysteries had a real meaning and were not mere triflers, but that he who arrives there after initiation and purification will dwell with the gods. For 'many,' as they say in the mysteries, 'are the thyrsus bearers, but few are the mystics', meaning, as I interpret the words, the true philosophers.
