Mithriaca III: The Mithraeum at Marino by Maarten Jozef Vermaseren

By Maarten Jozef Vermaseren

Ce monument devait être publié au second de los angeles découverte en 1963 et il ne faut sans doute pas regretter ce retard de vingt ans vehicle l'ouvrage de M. J. Vermaseren a bénéficié de tous les travaux sur les mystères «iraniens» parus dans los angeles assortment EPRO qu'il dirige lui-même avec toute los angeles compétence que l'on connaît et de quelques autres articles ou études. Après avoir soigneusement situé Marino et l'emplacement du mithraeum dans los angeles cité, l'auteur procède à une description très détaillée du monument : le sanctuaire est relativement lengthy (29,20 m), l'aménagement est conforme à los angeles normale, toutefois l. a. voûte, symbolisant le ciel, n'est pas décorée en bleu avec des étoiles. L'autel du dédicant est placé au centre de los angeles nef, devant los angeles représentation de Mithra sur le mur de fond. L'originalité de ce nouveau sanctuaire tient surtout à ses peintures, assez bien conservées, reproduites par de très belles photographies en couleurs et décrites avec minutie : Cautès et Cautopatès, Mithra et le taureau et quatre petites scènes de chaque côté, surmontées des bustes de Sol et Luna, le wrestle de Jupiter contre les Géants, Saturne, los angeles naissance de Mithra, Mithra sur le taureau, à droite, Mithra taurophorus, Sol à genoux devant Mithra, l'alliance de Sol et Mithra, le miracle de l'eau. Pour bien marquer l'importance de ces peintures, l'auteur procède à des comparaisons avec des monuments voisins, le mithraeum Barberini à Rome et celui de Nesce (Nersae) dans les Abruzzes (avec des reliefs) daté de 172 ; celui de Marino pourrait être d'une dizaine d'années plus ancien, toutefois, et comme d'autres historiens proposent une date plus tardive, est inséré un commentaire de P. G. P. Meyboom, centré sur l'analyse des peintures, qui apporte quelques précisions concepts et opte pour les environs de two hundred après J.-C. En une quarantaine de pages très denses, et à l. a. lumière de tous les travaux connus, M. J. Vermaseren étudie les interprétations religieuses de ces peintures. los angeles qualité des illustrations, photographies et dessins, l. a. richesse des notes et l. a. précision des indices donnent une très grande valeur à ce petit ouvrage.
