What is known depends on later Greek, Roman, and Christian interpretations. There are two major forms of the Adonis myth, only brought together in late mythographical tradition e.
The first, which may be termed the Panyasisian form, knows only of a quarrel between two goddesses Aphrodite and Persephone for the affections of the infant Adonis.
Zeus or Calliope decrees that Adonis should spend part of the year in the upperworld with the one, and part of the year in the lowerworld with the other.
This tradition of bilocation similar to that connected with Persephone and, perhaps, Dumuzi has no suggestion of death and rebirth.
The second, more familiar Ovidian form narrates Adonis's death by a boar and his commemoration by Aphrodite in a flower. There is no suggestion of Adonis rising.
The first version lacks an account of Adonis's death; the second emphasizes the goddess's mourning and the fragility of the flower that perpetuates his memory.
Even when the two versions are combined, Adonis' alternation between the upper and lower worlds precedes his death.
The rituals of Adonis, held during the summer months, are everywhere described as periods of intense mourning.
Only late texts, largely influenced by or written by Christians, claim that there is a subsequent day of celebration for Adonis having been raised from the dead.
The earliest of these is alleged to be the second-century account of Lucian Syrian Goddess 6 — 7 that, on the third day of the ritual, a statue of Adonis is "brought out into the light" and "addressed as if alive"; but this is an ambiguous report.
Lucian goes on to say that some think the ritual is not for Adonis but rather for some Egyptian deity. The practice of addressing a statue "as if alive" is no proof of belief in resurrection; rather it is the common presupposition of any cultic activity in the Mediterranean world that uses images.
Besides, Lucian reports that after the "address" women cut their hair as a sign of mourning. Considerably later, the Christian writers Origen and Jerome, commenting on Ezekiel , and Cyril of Alexandria and Procopius of Gaza, commenting on Isaiah , clearly report joyous festivities on the third day to celebrate Adonis identified with Tammuz having been "raised from the dead.
This pattern will recur for many of the figures considered: an indigenous mythology and ritual focusing on the deity's death and rituals of lamentation, followed by a later Christian report adding the element nowhere found in the earlier native sources, that the god was resurrected.
The frequently cited "gardens of Adonis" the kepoi were proverbial illustrations of the brief, transitory nature of life and contain no hint of rebirth.
The point is that the young plant shoots rapidly wither and die, not that the seeds have been "reborn" when they sprout. Finally, despite scholarly fantasies, there is no evidence for the existence of any mysteries of Adonis whereby the member was identified with Adonis or his fate.
The Ras Shamra texts late Bronze Age narrate the descent into the underworld of the puissant deity Aliyan Baal "the one who prevails; the lord" and his apparent return.
Unfortunately, the order of the incidents in the several different texts that have been held to form a Baal cycle is uncertain.
The texts that are of greatest relevance to the question of whether Aliyan Baal is correctly to be classified as a dying and rising deity have major lacunae at the most crucial points.
Although these texts have been reconstructed by some scholars using the dying and rising pattern, whether these texts are an independent witness to that pattern remains an open question.
In the major narrative cycle, Baal, having won the rulership by vanquishing the dangerous waters, is challenged by Mot, ruler of the underworld, to descend into his realm.
After some initial hesitation, and after copulating with a cow, Baal accepts the challenge and goes down to the lower realm, whence it will be said of him that he is as if dead.
After a gap of some forty lines, Baal is reported to have died. Anat descends and recovers his corpse, which is properly buried; a successor to Baal is then appointed, and Anat seeks out and kills Mot.
After the narrative is interrupted by another forty-line gap, El declares, on the basis of a symbolic dream, that Baal still lives. After another gap of similar length, Baal is described as being in combat with a group of deities.
As is apparent from this brief summary, much depends on the order of incidents. As it stands, the text appears to be one of a descent to the underworld and return — a pattern not necessarily equivalent to dying and rising.
Baal is "as if he is dead"; he then appears to be alive. In another, even more fragmentary Hadad cycle Hadad being identified with Baal , Hadad goes off to capture a group of monsters, but they, in turn, pursue him.
In order to escape he hides in a bog, where he lies sick for seven years while the earth is parched and without growth. Hadad's brothers eventually find him and he is rescued.
This is a disappearing-reappearing narrative. There is no suggestion of death and resurrection. There is no evidence that any of the events narrated in these distressingly fragmentary texts were ritually reenacted.
Nor is there any suggestion of an annual cycle of death and rebirth. The question whether Aliyan Baal is a dying and rising deity must remain sub judice.
The complex mythology of Attis is largely irrelevant to the question of dying and rising deities. In the old, Phrygian version, Attis is killed by being castrated, either by himself or by another; in the old Lydian version, he is killed by a boar.
In neither case is there any question of his returning to life. There is a second series of later traditions that deny that Attis died of his wounds but do not narrate his subsequent death or, for that matter, his rebirth.
Finally, two late, post-Christian theological reflections on the myth hint at rebirth: the complex allegory in the Naassene Sermon and the euhemerist account in Firmacus Maternus, in which a pretended resurrection is mentioned.
Attis is not, in his mythology, a dying and rising deity; indeed, he is not a deity at all. All of the attempts in the scholarly literature to identify Attis as a dying and rising deity depend not on the mythology but rather on the ritual, in particular a questionable interpretation of the five-day festival of Cybele on March 22 — The question of the relationship between the Day of Blood March 24 and the Day of Joy March 25 caught the attention of some scholars, who, employing the analogy of the relationship of Good Friday to Easter Sunday, reasoned that if among other activities on the Day of Blood there was mourning for Attis, then the object of the "joy" on the following day must be Attis's resurrection.
Unfortunately, there is no evidence that this was the case. The Day of Joy is a late addition to what was once a three-day ritual in which the Day of Blood was followed by a purificatory ritual and the return of the statue of the goddess to the temple.
Within the cult, the new feast of the Day of Joy celebrates Cybele. The sole text that connects the Day of Joy with Attis is a fifth-century biography of Isidore the Dialectician by the Neoplatonic philosopher Damascius, who reports that Isidore once had a dream in which he was Attis and the Day of Joy was celebrated in his honor!
Scholars have frequently cited a text in Firmacus Maternus The text most probably reflects a late antique Osirian ritual.
The figure of the king-god of Babylon, Marduk, has been crucial to those scholars associated with the Myth and Ritual school as applied to the religions of the ancient Near East.
For here, as in no other figure, the central elements of their proposed pattern appear to be brought together: the correlation of myth and ritual, the annual celebration of the dying and rising of a deity, paralleled by an annual ritual death and rebirth of the king.
Marduk is the canonical instance of the Myth and Ritual pattern. In , F. Thureau-Dangin published the text, transcription, and translation of a Seleucid era text, preserved in two copies, presenting a part of the ritual for the New Year festival the Akitu in Babylon.
Despite a large number of references to the performance of the ritual in Babylonian texts although not always to the Akitu associated with Marduk or Babylon and scattered mentions of individual items in the ritual, this exceedingly late cuneiform text is the only detailed description of the ritual program in Babylon to survive.
It enjoins twenty-six ritual actions for the first five days of the twelve-day ceremony, including a double reading of a text entitled Enuma elish.
Assuming that this reference is to some form of the text now known by that name, the "Babylonian creation epic" as reconstructed by contemporary scholarship, the ritual suggests a close link to the myth.
However, not one of the twenty-six ritual actions bears the slightest resemblance to any narrative element in the myth. Whatever the significance of the recitation of the text during the Akitu festival, the myth is not reenacted in that portion of the ceremonies that has survived.
Realizing this, some proponents of the Myth and Ritual approach have argued that the first five days of the ritual were only purificatory in nature, and go on to speculate that the next three days of the festival featured a dramatic reenactment of a myth of the death and resurrection of Marduk.
This sort of imaginative speculation gave rise to a new set of problems. There is no hint of Marduk's death in the triumphant account of his cosmic kingship in Enuma elish.
If some such myth was enacted, it was not the one stipulated in the ritual program. Nevertheless, scholars turned to a cuneiform text that they entitled The Death and Resurrection of Bel-Marduk.
The title is somewhat misleading. There are sixteen episodes in the text, which appears to narrate Marduk's imprisonment.
The text is fragmentary and difficult to interpret, but it appears to be in the form of a ritual commentary in which a set of ritual gestures are correlated to events in a subtextual narrative of Marduk's capture.
For an older generation of scholars, Marduk's imprisonment was equivalent to his death, and his presumed ultimate release represented his resurrection.
More recent interpretations have minimized the cosmic symbolism: Marduk has been arrested and is being held for trial. By either reading, such a narrative of the king-god's weakness or crime would appear odd in a Babylonian setting.
This caution is strengthened by the fact that the text is of Assyrian provenance and is written in the Assyrian dialect. It is not a native Babylonian text and could have played no role in the central festival of Babylon.
At that time, the statue of Marduk was carried off into Assyrian captivity. From one point of view, the text has a simple, propagandistic message: Compared to the gods of Ashur, Marduk is a weak deity.
More subtly, for those Assyrians who held Marduk in some reverence, the notion of his crimes would provide religious justification for his capture.
The notion that the king undergoes an annual ritual of mimetic dying and rising is predicated on the fact that the deity, whose chief representative is the king, is believed to undergo a similar fate.
If it is doubtful that Marduk was understood as a dying and rising deity, it is also doubtful that such a ritual was required of the king.
Some scholars have held that the so-called ritual humiliation of the king on the fifth day of the New Year festival, with its startling portrayal of the king being dethroned, slapped, pulled by the ears, and reenthroned, is symbolic of his death and resurrection.
But such an interpretation ignores both the manifest content of the ritual text and its date. During the humiliation ceremony, the king is required to recite a negative confession: that he did not overthrow his capital city of Babylon or tear down its walls, that he did not insult its protected citizens, that he did not neglect or destroy its central temple.
From one point of view, such a negative confession is ludicrous. What native Babylonian king ever contemplated, much less carried out, such actions?
These were the actions of foreign kings Assyrian, Persian, Seleucid who gained the throne of Babylon by conquest and desecrated the native cult.
However, as with Cyrus among the Israelites, so too for the Babylonians, foreign kings could be named who restored Babylon and its temple.
Read in this light, the ritual humiliation of the king appears to be a piece of Babylonian nationalistic ritual rectification: Good fortune and continued kingship comes to the foreign king if he acts as a pious native king would act.
If not, he will be stripped of his kingship. This understanding is made more plausible by the date of the only surviving texts of the ritual.
They are all from the Hellenistic Seleucid period, that is to say, from a period after the ending of native kingship and the installing of foreign kings on the throne.
The pattern may be earlier, dating back, perhaps, to the time of Sargon II r. In the present text of the New Year ritual, a set of actions designed to deal with the more proximate Assyrian conquerors has been reapplied to the relatively more foreign Seleucid rulers.
There is no evidence that the Babylonian Marduk was ever understood to be a dying and rising deity, that such a myth was reenacted during the New Year festival, or that the king was believed to undergo a similar fate.
In contrast to the other deities considered above, Osiris has a thick textual dossier stretching over millennia. Although the full, connected myth is only to be found in Greek, in Plutarch's Isis and Osiris from the early second century ce, the Osirian myth can be reconstructed from the Pyramid Texts of the fifth and sixth dynasties.
While the names of the actors and details of the incidents vary, this record is remarkably consistent over twenty-five hundred years.
Osiris was murdered and his body dismembered and scattered. The pieces of his body were recovered and rejoined, and the god was rejuvenated.
However, he did not return to his former mode of existence but rather journeyed to the underworld, where he became the powerful lord of the dead.
In no sense can Osiris be said to have "risen" in the sense required by the dying and rising pattern; most certainly it was never conceived as an annual event.
The repeated formula "Rise up, you have not died," whether applied to Osiris or a citizen of Egypt, signaled a new, permanent life in the realm of the dead.
Osiris was considered to be the mythical prototype for the distinctive Egyptian process of mummification. Iconographically, Osiris is always depicted in mummified form.
The descriptions of the recovery and rejoining of the pieces of his body are all elaborate parallels to funerary rituals: the vigil over his corpse, the hymns of lamentation, the embalmment usually performed by Anubis , the washing and purification of the corpse, the undertaking of the elaborate ritual of the "opening of the mouth" with its separate operations, as well as other procedures for reanimation, the dressing of the body, and the pouring out of libations.
Through these parallels, the individual Egyptian dead became identified with, and addressed as, Osiris perhaps earliest in Pyramid Texts a — a.
The myth and ritual of Osiris emphasizes the message that there is life for the dead, although it is of a different character than that of the living.
What is to be feared is "dying a second time in the realm of the dead" Book of Going Forth by Day — Osiris is a powerful god of the potent dead.
In no sense can the dramatic myth of his death and reanimation be harmonized to the pattern of dying and rising gods. The assessment of the figure of Tammuz Sumerian, Dumuzi as a dying and rising deity in the scholarly literature has varied more than any other deity placed in this class.
For example, within a thirty-year period, one of the most significant scholars in the field, the Sumeriologist Samuel Noah Kramer, has revised his judgment regarding this question several times.
Before , Kramer thought it possible that Dumuzi was freed from death; between and , he considered Dumuzi to be solely a dying god; since , he has been willing to speak again of the "death and resurrection" of Dumuzi.
The ritual evidence is unambiguously negative. During the summer month of Tammuz, there was a period of wailing and lamentation for the dead deity.
A substantial number of cultic hymns of mourning, going back to the second millennium bce, have been recovered; by the sixth century bce, the ritual was practiced in Jerusalem Ez.
If third-century Christian authors are to be trusted, the figure of Tammuz interacted with that of Adonis in Asia Minor. In all of these varied reports, the character of the ritual is the same.
It is a relentlessly funereal cult. The young Tammuz is dead, and he is mourned. His life was like that of the shoot of a tender plant.
It grows quickly and then withers away. It was a life that is "no more" — a persistent refrain in the lamentations. There is no evidence for any cultic celebration of a rebirth of Tammuz apart from late Christian texts where he is identified with Adonis.
Given the predilection of scholars concerned with Christian origins for a pre-Christian pattern of dying and rising deities, it comes as no surprise that, despite the lack of cultic evidence, it was widely supposed that the period of mourning for Tammuz must have been followed by a festival of rejoicing.
