The cult of Dionysos in Lower Moesia and Thrace according to the epigraphic data (1st3rd centuries). Author: Irina Shopova. Language: Bulgarian with a summary in English

 

     The study deals with epigraphic material related to the cult of Dionysus from present-day Bulgarian lands (1st3rd century AD). The analysis of epigraphic sources allows to trace out the main characteristics of Dionysus's cult in Roman provinces of Lower Moesia and Thrace. The main aims of the research are:

     1. To outline differences in the cult of Dionysus in urban and rural areas of the two Roman provinces

     2. To make a typology of Dionysian type of deity and to answer the following two interrelated questions:

          a) Is there a “rural” and “urban” Dionysus in the Thracian Roman provinces?

          b) Is there a “Thracian”, “classical (Greek)” and “Roman” Dionysus in the lands of the Thracians during the Roman era and, if yes, where it occurs  in the rural part of the provinces, in the west Pontic poleis or in the Roman military and urban centers, respectively?

     3. To test the working hypothesis that in the Thracian Roman provinces Dionysus and Liber Pater is not one and a same deity.
