The glossary of key terms and concepts with regard to Olympianism compiled and maintained by the US-mission of the extant and living Orphic sodality. It is an excellent crutch for newcomers who are in the process of familiarizing themselves with the religious terminology of Olympianism, but it certainly remains very useful to those who have spent more time in study.

It is impossible to waste one's time getting lost in these pages, and nearly as impossible not to learn something. Wink 


"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
