In school we learned all about the pantheon of Roman and Greek gods and how they were worshipped and what their various specialities were. Except, not everyone was all about the ‘established’ and ‘approved’ Gods. Apparently, there were some mystery cults back in the day that worshipped Gods outside of the norm and did some crazy shit to appease them. Since these were meant to be secret, however, there’s not a lot of details that were recorded for history, so a lot of what historians know, they’re sort of guessing at. But it’s all juicy stuff, don’t you worry.
Ancient Civ class just got a little more interesting. Maybe we should bring back some of these cults (not the murder-y ones though.)
