Description

Au IIe siecle de notre ere, alors que le christianisme gagne en puissance et que les cultes a mysteres connaissent un grand succes dans le Bassin mediterraneen, Lucien exprime sa mefiance face a la superstition et aux bizarreries de certaines religions. Si tout est ecrit d'avance, a quoi servent prieres et sacrifices ? Et comment croire a une Providence en voyant l'injustice gouverner le monde ? Dans La Deesse de Syrie, pastiche haut en couleur d'Herodote, il peint le sanctuaire d'Hierapolis, les etranges legendes liees a sa fondation et les rituels qui y sont celebres. Lucien revisite aussi avec malice la mythologie traditionnelle. Pour notre plus grand plaisir, nous decouvrons les portraits de dieux bougons, coleriques, jaloux, amoureux et savourons son art de la parodie.
