The figure of the dying god — variously named Adonis, Osiris, or Attis and embodying both beauty and tragedy — has exerted a fascination from ancient times to the present day. Worship was sometimes central to the community, sometimes marginal yet compelling in its “outsider” status. Myths invited meditations on love and death in various modes from comedy to epic. Through the great mythological texts of Greece and Rome as well as modern literature and art, this course explores this figure in all its variety, along with Christian adaptations and recent interpretations.
