and the Secret Doctrine
As if what we have already been over is not enough, we find
what a gross pagan Lewis really was when we notice that he portrayed Dionysus
(Bacchus), Silenus and the Maenads as good characters in his stories!
First, let's find out exactly what this pagan deity and his
In the Encyclopedia Britannica (1963
and 1974 editions) Dionysus is described "in Greek cult and mythology, a nature
god of fruitfulness and vegetation, but tending to specialize as a god of wine...The
alternative names Bacchus (Bacchos...); Sabazuis and Bassareus are Thracian."
He was also called Bromios.
He is believed to have
been introduced to Greece from Thrace and Phyrgia. While in Greece the orgiastic
worship of him was toned down, "In his native country his worshippers sought to
become possessed by or assimilated to him by wild dancing and the tearing in pieces
and eating of animals..." The victims of this carnage may have originally been
The female attendants of Dionysus were known as
the Maenads. Many women were attracted to him and took to the hills wearing faun
skins and crowns of ivy. The ivy wreath itself being one of his personal
attributes. (Remember the ivy wreaths
around the tops of the mazers of wine in Prince Caspian.) Their ritual
cry was "Euoi!" They danced by torchlight to the flute and kettledrum and used
wine freely. While under the god's power (really devils) they supposedly possessed
occult powers, could charm snakes, suckle animals, and were given super
strength to tear their living victims in pieces before devouring them raw. In
Greece a dancing circle surrounded his altar. Through this complete, unconditional
surrender to the devils in this orgy, they believed they could cross
over into the eternal, spiritual realm.
The phallus was
a prominent symbol in Dionysus' rituals and was carried in processions in his
honor. One of the oldest known prayer-hymns is one used by the followers of Dionysus
and is addressed to the genitals. His followers included fertility spirits,
such as satyrs.
He was said to have the "gift" of prophecy
and was given a position at that wretched shrine of Delphi only slightly lower
than that of Apollo. He often took animal forms and, interestingly enough, was
associated with the lion, among others.
Silenus in mythology
was the son of Hermes or Pan (Satan). He was said to be a nymph and was
the companion and nurse of Dionysus. Which gives room for speculation regarding
sodomy since Hermes was associated with such.
often depicted in the Bacchus' train in art and was generally shown as "a little
pot-bellied old man with snub nose and bald head, riding on an ass and supported
by satyrs..." (Quite appropriately, there is a statue of him carrying an infant
Dionysus in the Vatican.) In the plural they were said to be the same as satyrs,
but older, wiser and drunker. They were characterized as prophets and expert
Now, having laid all this disgusting filth out,
let's take a look at how C.S. Lewis protrayes them in his Chronicles of Narnia
for kids to read!
In Prince Caspian Lewis
opens to us his true heart: (The quotes are somewhat long in order to show
the context as Lewis has it.)
p. 152 - "The crowd and the
dance round Aslan (for it had become a dance once more) grew so thick and
rapid that Lucy was confused. She never saw where certain other people
came from who were soon capering among the trees. One was a youth, dressed
only in a fawn-skin, with vine-leaves wreathed in his curly hair. His
face would have bee almost too pretty for a boy's, if it had not looked so
extremely wild. You felt, as Edmund said when he saw him a few days
later, 'There's a chap who might do anything --- absolutely anything.' He
seemed to have a great many names --- Bromios, Bassareus, and the Ram,
were three of them. There were a lot of girls with him, as wild as he.
There was even, unexpectedly, someone on a donkey. And everybody
was laughing: and everybody was shouting out, "Euan, euan, eu-oi-oi-oi."
Note the wild dance, the extremely
wild faced youth that is Bromios (otherwise known and Dionysus or Bacchus), the
wild girls (Maenads), the man on the donkey (Silenus) who is also said to cry
"Refreshments!" (which in the context of Dionysus would be wine), and the
cries of "Euoi!". What Lewis is describing here is nothing other than a
Notice also that Lucy is confused. Lewis
gives himself away on this one. 1Corinthians
14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches
of the saints.
154 - "One saw sticky and stained fingers everywhere, and, though mouths were
full the laughter never ceased nor the yodeling cries of Euan, euan, eu-oi-oi-oi-oi,
till all of a sudden everyone felt at the same moment that the game (whatever
it was), and the feast, ought to be over, and everyone flopped down breathless
on the ground and turned his face to Aslan to hear what he would sat next.
"At that moment the sun was just rising and Lucy remembered
something and whispered to SBlipn,
" 'I say, Su, I know
who they are."
" 'Who?' "
boy with the wild face is Bacchus and the old one on the donkey is Silenus.
Don't you remember Mr. Tumnus telling us about them long ago?' "
" 'Yes, of course. But I say Lu ----' "
" 'I wouldn't have felt very safe with Bacchus
and all his wild girls if we'd met them without Aslan.'"
" 'I should think not,' Said Lucy." [Emphasis added.]
Again, all the sign posts are in place and Lewis even puts the event at sunrise!
p. 192 - "Bacchus and
the Maenads --- his fierce, mablipap girls --- and
Silenus, were still with them. Lucy, fully rested, jumped up. Everyone
was awake, everyone was laughing, flutes were playing, cymbals clashing.
Animals, not Talking Animals, were crowding in upon them from every direction.
" 'What is it, Aslan?' said Lucy, her eyes dancing and her
feet wanting to dance.
" 'Come, children," said he. 'Ride
on my back again to-day.' "
" 'Oh lovely!' cried Lucy,
and both girls climbed on to the piano coversm golden back as they had done no-one knew
how many years before. Then the whole party moved off --- Aslan leading.
Bacchus and his Maenads leaping, rushing and turning somersaults, the
beasts frisking round them, and Silenus and his donkey bringing up
the rear." [Emphasis added.]
Now, note here that Lewis
actually names the Maenads and describes them as "fierce". To complete the
description of this devil worship for your children to mimic in their play, he
adds the flutes and cymbals, and animals are brought in, though their fate
at the hands of the Maenads is carefully excluded.
describes them going down a hill into town where they found a girls' school.
The girls were dressed in ugly tight collars, thick stockings and tight
hair-dos. The teacher and class all fled in terror except one girl. Aslan
called her "sweetheart" and asked her to join his wild crowd, which she did. She
was instantly dancing with the Maenads who helped her take off some of her "unnecessary"
and uncomfortable clothes!
So, Lewis is telling your children
that in order to be part of this wild bunch (which he portrays as fun), they must
join in the dancing and take off some of their clothes!
This sounds remarkably similar to one of the accounts in the Bible -- the occasion
on which Aaron made the golden calf and blip worshipped it with a wild feast
and dancing party. When Moses got back down the mountain, he confronted Aaron
and received a stupid excuse. Then we read, Exodus
32:25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made
them naked unto their shame among their enemies:) 26 Then Moses stood in
the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD'S side? let him come
unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. 27 And
he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of blip, Put every man his sword
by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and
slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.
28 And the children of Levi did according to the
word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thoBlipnd men.
From this account we can see that the LORD does not look lightly
on this sort of thing. Allowing C.S. Lewis to teach your children such heathenism
is perilous to say the least!
The most revolting thing,
which has been evident right along, is stated plainly in the quote on p. 192.
Aslan is leading! Now, if Aslan is supposedly the Lord Jesus Christ, as
many assure us and as Lewis himself allowed, then what we find here is the grossest
blasphemy!! This is then supposedly Jesus Christ leading a Satanic orgy
of Bacchus!! This is sick beyond description!!
have already determined that the real identity of Aslan in The Chronicles of
Narnia is actually the sun god, but Lewis allowed and promoted the notion
that this was an allegory of Biblical truth and that Aslan was indeed a picture
of Christ Jesus - God in the flesh. Therefore, it is all the same as if
he had written such filth about the Lord of glory in the first place! Deuteronomy
32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will
render vengeance to mine enemies, and will repiano coversd them that hate me.
One last interesting point here is
that in The Last Battle on page 170 Lewis has Digory saying, "It's all
in Plato, all in Plato." Now, Lewis calls Plato "an overwhelming theological genius"
(Reflections on the Psalms, p. 80), which any discerning Christian familiar
with Plato's works would take strong exception to. Plato was a pagan, Greek philosopher
and his followers called Dionysus "Our Master". So, we see that C.S. Lewis gave
credit to a Dionysus-worshipper as having written long before Christ was
even born all the things that he, Lewis, put in his book! This is a real admition
of guilt, and fits perfectly with Lewis' belief that Christ fulfilled paganism
(Reflections on the Psalms, p. 129). Lewis has showed us plainly
who his master really is, and it is not the Lord Jesus Christ!
There are references to Bacchus and the myths and practices surrounding the
worship of him elsewhere in The Chronicles of Narnia, but we will
move on to the next quote, which also appears in Prince Caspian, and
brings us over into the subject of witchcraft.
