Abstract:Mithraism, first established as a separate branch of study by famed philologist Franz Cumont in the first year of the 20th century, is currently a battlefield of contention among scholars, especially concerning the origins and meaning of the Roman Cult of Mithra. The author herein argues that Roman Mithraism was not a completely newly fabricated cult but merely another manifestation of the same Mysteries descended from the ancient Near East and Egypt. The methodology used applies a syncretistic comparison and discursive examination of various elements in the Roman cultic iconography, epigraphy, textual remnants and rituals with correlative manifestations of the astral-cosmogonical beliefs, relics, and rituals from the ancient Near East and Egypt over a period of more than four thousand years. The discourse includes ancillary discussions on the leontocephalous (lion-headed god) and the Sun-god-Moon-god alternating preeminence in archaic cultures and in relation to the Cult of Mithra.
