 Cybele - Free Encyclopedia of Thelema
Originally a Phrygian goddess, Cybele (Greek Κυβέλη, sometimes given the etymology "she of the hair" if her name is Greek, not Phrygian) (Roman equivalent: Magna Mater or 'Great Mother') was the Earth Mother goddess who was worshipped in Anatolia from Neolithic times.
For Roman devotes of Cybele Mater Magna who were not prepared to go so far, the testicles of a bull, one of the Great Mother's sacred animals, were an acceptable substitute, as many inscriptions show.
In Rome, when the worship of Cybele, as Magna Mater, was formally initiated in 203 BC, Rome was embroiled in the Second Punic War at the time.

 The Eugene O'Neill Review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In this first tentative exploration of the Magna Mater myth, O’Neill emphasizes the light-dark dichotomy within her image, not only in the Cybel character, but also by splitting her devotee into two personae.
The dream which his mother’s spirit brought to him from the Magna Mater is both salvific and messianic: “when one man loves her purely and she finds him worthy she will love him and give him the secret of truth and he will become the new savior who will bring happiness and peace to men!
O’Neill’s valiant attempt to rehabilitate the Magna Mater myth fails because he cannot honestly discover in Nature a benevolent alliance of power and love.

 Pagan Regeneration: Chapter V: The Regenerative Rites of the Great Mother
The Magna Mater of all living creatures was especially the goddess of the wilder aspects of nature.
So the Magna Mater came in triumph to the west in 204 B.C. Although the worship of the Great Mother was officially welcomed to Italy, it seems to have been regarded with suspicion, treated as foreign, and subjected to state regulation during the last two centuries of the Republic.
In the cult of the Mater Deum the communion of eating and drinking, the semblance of mystic marriage, the purification in the bath of blood, and the mortification of the flesh, all functioned as sacraments of spiritual regeneration.

The project of the Temple of Magna Mater was born two years ago under the Curule Aedileship of C. Fabius Quintilianus and continued under the Aedileship of F. Apulus Caesar.
Their first goal was to try to restore part of the Temple, but it was soon realized that this kind of action would be very expensive, and absolutely out of our reach with current NR financial means.
As said before, it's quite clear that it is not possible to restore the Temple itself, because its structural platform is nowadays covered by a tree growth known as Little Wood, which is in itself protected as an historical structure, and is also currently conserved for environmental reasons.
