Meet the Minoans: Zagreus


I've just uploaded a new Minoan Path blog post about Zagreus, one of the lesser-known deities of the Minoan pantheon. Don't get him confused with the Greek god Zeus; Zagreus has his own unique, fascinating character.

I'm fascinated by Zagreus' connection with the sacred animals goat, bull, and serpent, and also by his connection with ancient shamanic and ecstatic ritual practice.
