All who have paid the least attention to the literature of Greece, Egypt, Phoenicia, or Rome are aware of the place which the “Mysteries” occupied in these countries, and that, whatever circumstantial diversities there might be, in all essential respects these “Mysteries” in the different countries were the same.
All these separate facts–all these scattered testimonies, recur to that fruitful principle which places in the East the centre of science and civilisation. It was when Cyrus had entered Babylon that the Persians, for the first time, testified their homage babiloniss him by adoration; for, “before this,” says Xenophon Cyropoed”none of the Persians had given adoration to Cyrus.
