DELOS

The Temple of Dionysus in Delos is just one of the many examples we can do about the cult of fertility and vitality. The propitiatory value of these objects-images is evident. The cult of lingam in India continues to exist today, and veneration for male genitalia is spread throughout Eastern Asia. Even in Europe happened the same thing, from Greece to Scotland, as a godddess or as a talisman. Is not true that Christian religion has suffocated form the very beginning these beliefs and customs, Romanesque is scattered of such examples. The ancient pagan religiosity has continued to exist for centuries and centuries, only in the nineteenth century public morality felt obliged to intervene with the use of repression and the "invention" of pornography.
