Episode 18: Homeric Hymn to Dionysus

January 8, 2017
We celebrate the new year with the story of a new arrival: Dionysus. The newest god of the Greek pantheon, Dionysus was imported into early Greek culture, probably from the east. The Hymn describes a young, strong and beautiful god who is abducted by pirates for ransom. Long story short, it doesn't quite work out for the pirates and yet again we see the after effects of a divine encounter.
