Example text

Gatherings of pagan cult associations Mystery cults and cult associations were operating throughout the Graeco-Roman world. Sociologically, they can be considered as a subgroup of the general class of voluntary associations. The most popular mystery cults were the one in Eleusis, the Sibylline cult at Rome, the Mithras cult, and the cults of Isis and Serapis. Cult associations are well attested by inscriptions, for instance, those drawn up by the association 25 Coptic Gos. Thom. 61. Salome is one of the Galilean women and disciples that accompanied Jesus to Jerusalem; Mk.

Smith, From Symposium to Eucharist, 130–131. Another Dionysiac association is attested by a long inscription discovered two kilometres from Torre Nova in the Roman Campagna, in the environs of Rome, dating to ca. 150 CE. The inscription (IGUR I, 160; ed. L. Moretti, Rome, 1968–1991) offers much information about the organizational model, internal structures, membership and recruitment of the association, but does not mention the meals or symposia held by this association. See Bradley H. McLean, “The Agrippinilla Inscription: Religious Associations and Early Church Formation,” in Origins and Method: Towards a New Understanding of Judaism and Christianity; Essays in Honour of John C.

13:1–3; Lam. 1:10; Philo, Virt. 108, as Du Toit indicates himself. 84 However, Pliny does know the Latin noun ecclesia for the assembly of the people of a Greek town; see Ep. 1. 85 The periodical supper held by voluntary associations was a generally Hellenistic practice. This practice was shared by pagans and Jews alike. In this respect pagans and Jews shared the same cultural tradition. It is impossible, therefore, to differentiate between periodical community suppers held by pagans and similar suppers held by Jews.
