In a comment left on my previous post, Galina remarked:
I also think it’s great that you’re talking about female orpheotelestai. I suspect people forget that was a thing.
Sadly, I encounter that all the time. But thankfully women are highly regarded within the Starry Bull tradition – and not just because we’re Bacchic Orphics. You find this same attitude in Egypt and Magna Graecia, two cultures that have strongly influenced us, especially in the shaping of our values.
