Mithraean Temple

Mithraean Temple - Rome

Temple to the God Mithras, a Persian religion also known as Zoroastrianism. It holds many traditions that we adopted by Christianity. Shown are the benches inside of the dark chamber in which the members would sit at the end of every meeting to eat bread and wine - the body and blood of the mythical bull slaughtered when Zoroastrianism came into existence. At the far wall is a plague dedicated to the bull.
