Example text

Die Sibyllinischen Bücher verbrannten, markierte dies nicht das Ende einer Wissenstradition. Religiöse Texte, wohl zumeist Ritualanweisungen, wurden so emsig zusammengetragen, dass die neue Sammlung der Sibyllinischen Bücher stark anschwoll. Augustus machte sich 12 v. Chr. daran, diese Kollektion zu durchforsten und zu bestimmen, was als zugehörig galt und was nicht. Ein ähnlicher Kanonisierungsprozess ist auch von der Bibel bekannt. In der Kaiserzeit kursierten Orakelsammlungen unter dem Namen libri Sibyllini, welche die wichtigsten Ereignisse der römischen Geschichte in Form von Prophezeiungen ex eventu wiedergeben.

Wurden die angeblichen Numabücher verbrannt. Man warf den Anhängern des Bacchuskultes vor, dass sie ihre Rituale in der Abgeschiedenheit und in der Nacht feierten. Da alle von Wein berauscht waren, soll es zu unbeschreiblichen Szenen gekommen sein: Das Panorama reicht von sexuellen Ausschweifungen über kleinere Verbrechen wie das Erstellen von falschen Testamenten bis hin zum Mord. Und da die Zahl der Eingeweihten groß war, wurde der Kult, den man für eine Verschwörung hielt, zur Gefahr für den Staat (Livius 39,8–19).

Kritik an einem religiösen System ist ein Teil des Systems, zumal bei polytheistischen Religionen. Zweitens ist es gut möglich, dass Religionskritik nur im literarischen Diskurs verhandelt wurde und wenig Einfluss auf die Kulte entwickelte. Xenophanes von Kolophon Xenophanes von Kolophon richtete sich irgendwann zwischen 570 und 467 v. Chr. – den frühen Philosophen wurde gerne ein hohes Alter zugeschrieben – gegen die anthropomorphen Göttervorstellungen. Er mokierte sich darüber, dass die Menschen ihre Götter so darstellten, wie sie selbst waren: Die dunkelhäutigen Äthiopier hatten dunkelhäutige Gottheiten, die Thraker, durchweg rothaarig und blauäugig, dachten sich ihre Götter mit roten Haaren und blauen Augen.
