~ MITHRAISM  SALIENT ANCIENT RELIGION OF GREAT IMPORTANCE
             IT STOOOD FOR THE TRIUMPH OF GOOD OVER EVIL
     TO REDUCE ITS CHARM AND APPEAL
     CHRISTIANS SPREAD THE IDEA THAT
     MITHRAISM WAS INVENTED BY THE DEVIL
     hx> A MITHRAIC WORSHIP SITE WAS FOUND UNDER THE
         FOUNDATION OF ST CLEMENT CHURCH IN ROME
     note CHRISTIANS CO OPTED MITHRAISM ALONG WITH
          OTHER TRADITIONS THAT WERE HARD TO ERADICATE
     lit+ " ... THERE IS ONE CHIEF AND PRINCIPAL GOD ...
                ONLY MITHRA ... "  in UTOPIA by
     Sir Thomas MORE [#] as if he chose MITHRA
     as the deity to rule his ideal island representing
     UTOPIA which is peculiar since MORE was
     a fervent ROMAN CATHOLIC

     hx> EARLY CHRISTIANS SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYED
         DOCUMENTS AND MEMORIES OF MITHRAISM
     MITHRAISM WAS THE MAIN RIVAL RELIGION

     hx> the above underscores HOW THIS RELIGION
         SPREAD AND AMALGAMATED WITH CULTS FROM
     INDIA to EGYPT and BRITAIN
     IT PROBABLY ORIGINATED IN PERSIA
     note AS THE ROMAN EMPIRE EXPANDED AND REACHED PERSIA
          AND AFTER POMPEY [#] CONQUERED CILICA IN 67 BC
     MITHRA BECAME RAPIDLY KNOWN AS  " SOL INVICTUS "
     UNDER ROME THE MITHRA CULT WAS A COMBINATION OF
     PERSIAN MYSTICISM WITH SEMITIC THEOLOGY
     ITS GREATEST POPULARITY WAS AMONG THE
     ROMAN TROOPS  ROMAN SLAVES  AND
     ALONG THE DANUBE BASIN
     ITS SIMILARITIES WITH CHRISTIANITY
     WERE VERY STRONG
     MANY EARLY CHRISTIANS EXPLAINED THE SIMILARITIES
     AS A SATANIC INVENTION TO PARODY THE TRUE CHURCH
     in spite of attempts by Julian the Apostate
     to uphold MITHRAISM
     " CHRISTIANITY ASCENDED
       THE THRONE OF THE CAESARS AND
       CHRISTIANITY BECAME CAESARISED " as per
     Irach J S TARAPOREWALA [#] in Ancient Religions
     Edited by Vergilius FERM [#] per The Philosophical
     Library  New York 1950 pp 212
     note some tenets of MITHRAISM
          MITHRA ASCENDED TO THE HEAVENS IN
          THE CHARIOT OF THE SUN
     MEN WERE INITIATED TO THE RELIGION AT ANY AGE
     BY SOME SORT OF BAPTISM
     NO DISTINCTION WAS MADE BETWEEN RICH or
     POOR SLAVE or FREE but
     WOMEN WERE EXCLUDED and some believe this was
     the fatal reason for its demise
     MITHRAISM SURVIVES AMALGAMATED WITH MANY
     RELIGIONS BUT FAILED TO BECOME A NATIONAL CULT
