Serapis

Post  Dimitrios65 on Wed Sep 20, 2017 5:59 pm

Hello,
Does anyone here worship Serapis? I'm not sure as to the extent that this question is relevant for this forum, but if you do worship Serapis, how do you view him in the wider context of Olympianismos?

Many thanks

Serapis was sometimes dentified with Hades (Julian) and a few other gods, he had an awesome temple in Alexandria, the Serapeum. I've read that some Christians identified Serapis with Christ. When the Christians stormed the Serapeum and stood in front of the magnificent statue they were awestruck and fearful to strike the statue of the god for fear that the sky would fall over their heads and the Nile would dry up.
