The Dionysian Mysteries were a religious cult of ancient Greece and Rome known for their use of alcohol and trance-inducing ritual practices as a means of self-liberation and transcendence.  Through religious rites, one could overcome societal constraints and mental limitations to gain access to the innate and uninhibited "true self"- personified by Dionysus.  Through closer examination of these rituals, we can gain insight into the ancient Greek and Roman psyche- one afflicted by tensions between the civilized and uncivilized self.
