The wisdom inspired by Dionysus Liberator: a comparison
The objective of this paper is to assess the action of Dionysus Liberator in
two aspects: first, the wine consumption and, secondly, the Orphic rituals. In both of
these elements, there exists an acquisition process of an upper knowledge, typical of
both wise men and philosophers, in which Dionysus Liberator plays a role. Thus, we
will establish the similarities and differences between these two procedures in order to
get a privileged wisdom and to know the way in which the god intercedes.
