A bit of reading regarding the Eleusinian Mysteries. Held annually in the city of Eleusis in honor of Demeter and her daughter Persephone, they were the most sacred and revered ritual celebration of ancient Greece, their origin possibly dating back to the early Mycenaean period.Quite a long essay (for a web page), but an instructing one, discussing the known facts about these Eleusinian rites. A shame that not much is known about how they were taking place exactly.
