Diploma in Modern Mithraism
 (NEW 2018)


               Distance Learning Course Details


   College accreditation: International Association for Distance Learning.

Mithraism was a mystery religion of Persian origin that spread rapidly through the ancient Roman empire and, though not many people know this today, it was the main religion of the Empire before it converted to Christianity. This course explains how Christianity took over various aspects of Mithraism including a savior born of a virgin on 25th December. It also looks at the philosophy of Mithraism and its relationships with other faiths and spiritual movements. Details are also given of a modern Mithraist revival including ceremonies and rituals.

Cost: 145.00  (145 Pounds Sterling- for currency conversion see www.xe.com)

A FREE textbook will be included for students from the UK.   Students outside the UK will need to order the textbook separately - free shipping is available to many countries from our recommended supplier.

A course manual is also provided in PDF format.
