Even if the book’s direct references to the god are minimal, Dionysus is still viewed as a major contender with Yahweh, and the two are cast as rivals, each of whom can offer salvation and deliverance to his followers.

He stresses the complementarity of the three hymns in their representation and theology of the god, and emphasizes that prior to dramatic portrayals of Dionysus they furnished the most authoritative image of the deity.

Claude Calame investigates the dithyramb and its relation to Dionysus. She determines that despite the absence of an explicit focus on Dionysus, the plays nevertheless reveal a rich variety of the god’s mythic and cultic aspects. Apart from that omission, the book itself is beautifully produced, with high-quality plates and sturdy binding.

Here, under the influence of late antique syncretism, Dionysus leaves off much of his pagan character and takes on characteristics of Christ, becoming a deity who shows compassion and pity for the sufferings of humans, and dedicates himself to allaying these sufferings.

Two articles usefully ask whether maenadic ecstasy was fact or fiction: His caution is salutary, but while it is true that many facets of the Dionysus figure remain undefined, these essays go some considerable distance in further defining this most elusive of gods.
