The Image of the Bull: A Transcultural Exploration from Paleolithic Caves to the Mithraic Mysteries — Antonietta Francini, S.R.C., M.D., and Benefactor Taciturnus, F.R.C.

This podcast features an article from the December 2010 Mithraic Mysteries issue of the Rosicrucian Digest. It is well known that the image of the bull is prominent in the Mithraic Mysteries. However, the actual role of this image is widely misunderstood, and even inverted in the popular imagination, encouraged by decades of confused pedagogy. In order to gain a wider perspective, it will be useful to survey several aspects of the image of the bull in ancient myths and spiritualities, before we return to clarify his place in the Mithraic Mysteries.
