(Rome: "L'Erma" di Brettschneider, ) pp. One of the most perplexing aspects of the Mithraic mysteries consists in the fact that Mithraic iconography always portrays Mithras and the sun god as separate beings, while-- in stark contradiction to this absolutely.

The “Mithraic studies”, as John Hinnells named it, is flourishing since the ’s, having a renaissance in the last years again. After Roger Beck’s published his great book in where he introduced the notion of startalk, a series of new studies and books were published on the Roman cult of Mithras.
