The sacrificial part of the Greek religion had to do with submitting to the wild chaotic world beyond one's own will; getting used to the idea that your rational plans will be knocked around by larger forces. The ecstatic-ritual part of ancient Greek religion was a kind of throwing oneself into the chaos, not pitting your rationality against the tempestuous world, but rather leaving your rationality on the shore, letting the waves toss you about, and coming to identify with the waves, with the storm, with the weather.Jennifer Michael Hecht Ancient Greek Religion Sayings By Jennifer Michael Hecht: The sacrificial part of the Greek religion had to do with submitting to the wild

The associations get only richer and more intense when you realise that the very concept of truth - the cornerstone of philosophy and religion alike, let alone law - also rests heavily on the meaning of waking up. And you don't need a philosopher to appreciate it, because there are clues to its dependency in everyday phrases such as 'waking up to the truth', 'my eyes were opened' and even 'wake up and smell the coffee'. If such phrases hint that waking up and truth are bedfellows of some sort, you need only go back to the ancient Greek for corroboration.

And what is opposite of lethargy, if not waking up?Robert Rowland Smith Ancient Greek Religion Sayings By Robert Rowland Smith: The associations get only richer and more intense when you realise that the very concept
The sciences were financially supported, honoured everywhere, universally pursued; they were like tall edifices supported by strong foundations. Then the Christian religion appeared in Byzantium and the centres of learning were eliminated, their vestiges effaced and the edifice of Greek learning was obliterated. Everything the ancient Greeks had brought to light vanished, and the discoveries of the ancients were altered out of recognition.Mas'udi Ancient Greek Religion Sayings By Mas'udi: The sciences were financially supported, honoured everywhere, universally pursued; they were like tall edifices supported
Greeks and Romans were anti-Mediterranean cultures, in the sense of being at odds with much of the political heritages of Persia, Egypt, and Phoenicia.

Greek and Latin words for "democracy," "republic," "city-state," "constitution," "freedom," "liberty," and "free speech" have no philological equivalents in other ancient languages of the Mediterranean (and few in the contemporary languages of the non-West as well).Victor Davis Hanson Ancient Greek Religion Sayings By Victor Davis Hanson: Greeks and Romans were anti-Mediterranean cultures, in the sense of being at odds with much
If the Gospel of Judas found in Codex Tchacos can be convincingly identified as being a Coptic translation of the original Greek Gospel of Judas that Bishop Ireneaus mentioned around A.D. 180 in his book, "Against Heresies," it will be an important step in the study of ancient gnosticism. We would have for the first time the chance to trace back the history of Sethian gnosticism to before the time of Irenaeus. This would be a significant gain in our knowledge of early Christianity.Gregor Wurst Ancient Greek Religion Sayings By Gregor Wurst: If the Gospel of Judas found in Codex Tchacos can be convincingly identified as being
