    I never knew about the connection between Demeter and bees! Thanks for exploring that here, I greatly enjoyed it!
    Greater Mystery rites all over the ancient world had an almost magical way of defining a geographic territory, defining a nationality, as well as defining a religion from which political philosophy and laws emerge. Overwhelming evidence suggests that these types of mystery rites were ubiquitous to the ancient world, and all of them utilized psychoactive substances. Demeter eschewed wine in favour of kekeyon. The last supper, which was almost certainly a mystery rite consecrated its ceremony with wine which is also a psychoactive substance. My blog explores a profusion of connections between the Eleusinian Mysteries and Jewish Jubilee. Check it out at lessermystery.wordpress.com

    Why do you catagorise the Last Supper as “almost certainly a mystery rite” ? Why the insistence on “paganizing” Christianity. Yes, nothing exists in a vacuum. However, the teachings of Christ were a revolutionary break from elitist pagan hierarchical systems. Additionally, the similarities may exist only in so much as the older expressions were an incomplete forecasting (or a dialectic if you will) of a more spiritually mature faith. Hence, they are still observed and taught by people as diverse as Zapatista sympatheticos in native communities in Chiapas.
