Topic: Zamolxis


  
  Zalmoxis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zalmoxis (Greek Ζάλμοξις, also known as Salmoxis, Σάλμοξις, Zamolxis, Ζάμοξλις, or Samolxis Σάμοξλις) was a semi-mythical social and religious reformer, regarded as the only true God by the Thracian Dacians (also known in the Greek records as Getae Γέται).
Plato says in the Charmides dialogue that Zamolxis was also a great medic who took a holistic approach to healing body and mind, not just the body as was the Greek practice.
It is possible that Zamolxis is Sabazius, the Thracian Dionysus or Zeus.

 www.dacii.ro - A new perspective of Romanian ancient history - The Dacians - Legenda lui Zamolxis
Tot retragandu-se din calea fiarei, Zamolxis a ajuns intr-o sala mare.
Zamolxis aproape ca renuntase sa mai spere ca va scapa, cand a patruns intr-o a treia sala, de data aceasta in forma de triunghi.
In toti anii pribegiei, Zamolxis nu incetase nici o clipa sa se gandeasca la cele traite in tinerete in Grota si in fata Sfinxului, si se intreba daca aici se va sfarsi destinul sau, daca menirea sa fusese atinsa si daca doar la atat avea sa se limiteze scopul sau in viata.

 The Yew-Demon
As Zamolxis lowered his wand from the helmet, the sphere and crescent flashed as though reflecting the midday sun.
Zamolxis also fought to repel the creatures with his wand, but it was not in his power to destroy them.
Zamolxis aimed his wand at the weapon and called, "By Mother Turan, be thou powerless!" Torq' Madah's staff went limp as though it were made of rubber, and struck Kirkay harmlessly.

Their supreme God was Zamolxis, a god related to the underworld initially, but therefore becoming a celestial one.
Gebeleizis is generally regarded as a the second hyposthasis of Zamolxis, being connected to the sky, the lightning and the Sun.
This shifting in the attributes of Zamolxis paralleled the burial customs of the Dacians in which the inhumation was replaced by the incineration.

 ROMANIAN MYTHOLOGY
When it was ready, Zamolxis disappeared from the nucleus of Thracian social life and descended to his underground "bunker".
Regarding Zamolxis' background itself and his underground hiding shelter, I personally don't fully reject everything that is said, but don't believe too much in it either.
As we can see, the naive identification of God Zamolxis with one of Pythagoras' slaves, who became afterwards free and wealthy, is being disputed even by Herodotus himself.

Zamolxis ar fi fost la origine întemeietorul unui cult initiatic si mistic, un personaj istoric real, un taumaturg si un reformator care ulterior a fost divinizat, este o ipotezã acceptabilã.
Zamolxis însã, divinitatea chtonianã, a rãmas — cel putin, începând din secolul lui Herodot — divinitatea supremã a daco-getilor.
Zamolxis era izvorul vietii, zeul vegetatiei, al reînvierii naturii, atributele lui erau legate de cresterea vitelor si rodul ogoarelor.

 Summary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Zamolxis, the first lawgiver of the Getae 1687 published by him 21 years after he began his studies—as we learn from an address to his readers—is divided into nine chapters, ending with a letter addressed to him by an old chum and guild mate of his, Johan Axehielmus (1608-1692).
Zamolxis might be assimilated with Saturn, but also with the Sun (maybe that way it may explain the cult of the Sun with Maramures inhabitants, which presence on their gates is relevant, and the famous Merry Graveyard In Sapanta certifies the continuity of Getical belief in immortality.
Most important, in my opinion, is Zamolxis proximity with the god Pan, who is the master of the whole material universe, a god of the entire Nature, the etymone of his name occurring again in the Gothic/Getic FAN—as we learn inclusively from Vulcanius Brugensis l.c., meaning "God".

Polovragenii, neam de pastori, traiesc in umbra propriului lor trecut, impartiti, cum ar spune Eminescu, intre "lumea-nchipuirii, cu-a ei visuri fericite" si "lumea cea aievea, unde cu sudori muncite te incerci a stoarce lapte din a stancei coaste seci".
Cea mai mare dintre toate, electrificata in 1984, este Pestera lui Pahomie sau a lui Zamolxis, a carei lungime depaseste 10 kilometri si se crede ca raspunde tocmai in Transilvania, in apropierea cetatii Sarmizegetusa.
Atunci au fost pomeniti Pitagora (profesorul lui Zamolxis, dar dupa unii, elevul profetului dac), Ptolemeu, Deceneu, Gebeleizis, alti zei si zeite.

 DACIA - Some Aspects
Zamolxis (Saitnoxis) was the Supreme God of the Getae (or Dacians), a Thracian people inhabiting a territory including today's Romania, but also extending farther cast and northeast.
If he be killed by the cast, they believe that the gods regard them with favour; but if he be not killed, they blame the messenger himself, deeming him a bad man, and send another messenger in place of him whom they blame.
For myself, I have been told by the Greeks who dwell beside the Hellespont and Pontus that this Zamolxis was a man who was once a slave in Samos, his master being Pythagoras, son of Mnesarchus; presently, after being freed and gaining great wealth, he returned to his own country.

Zalmoxis Σάλμοξις (or Salmoxis Σάλμοξις, Zamolxis Σάμολξις, Samolxis Σάμολξις) was a semi-mythical social and religious reformer, regarded as the only true God by the Thracian Dacians (also known in the Greek records as Getae Γέται;).
He traveled to Egypt and brought the people mystic knowledge about the immortality of the soul, teaching them that they would pass at death to a certain place, where they would enjoy all possible blessings for all eternity.
Plato says in the Charmides dialogue that Zamolxis was also a great medic who treated the mind as part of healing the whole human being, not only the body as the Greek medics did.

 Zamolxis - de Pitagora
Zamolxis (Saitnoxis) a fost zeul suprem al geţilor (sau dacilor), un popor trac care trăia pe teritoriul ce include azi România, dar care se extindea mult mai mult spre Est şi NordEst.
Eu însă am aflat de la grecii care se aventurau dincolo de Hellenspont şi Pontus că acest Zamolxis fusese un om care a fost o dată sclav în Samos, stăpânul lui fiind Pythagoras, fiul lui Mnesaarchus; acum, după ce a fost eliberat şi îmbogăţindu-se, s-a întors în propria ţară.
Acum, după moartea lui Pitagora, Zamolxis, reparând acolo, le-a devenit iniţiatorul acestei filozofii.

 Articol - culture: - Religia geto - daca de Claudiu Stroe
Clemens din alexandria ne spune si el despre prezenta lui Zamolxis ca divinitate a geto-dacilor, insa el spunand ca este doar un semizeu [9] adica, mai mult un zeu local decat un zeu care sa stapaneasca peste toate tinuturile geto-dacilor.
Este important faptul ca il numeste pe Zamolxis ca divinitate, desi nu se stie cat de bine informat era despre religia geto-dacilor de momrnt ce el spune ca getii aleg in fiecare an cate un sol pe care sa-l trimita lui Zamolxis.
In istoriografia latina avem mentionat ca zeu pe Zamolxis, insa nu pare e fi atat de maret prezentat ca in istoriografia greaca (probabil datorita putinelor date care s-au pastrat de la ei si datorita faptului ca ei au cunoscut pe geto-daci mai bine abia dupa ce au cucerit dacia, in anul 106), si pe Marte.

 Istoric
Dacii ca si tracii, era un popor puternic stapanit de prejudecati religioase,pe care conducatorii lor le-au folosit in interesul dominatiei de clasa si a statului asupritor.Acest Zamolxis, avea un templu pe muntele sfint Goganion, cu un riu cu acelas nume la poalele lui.
Pentru a demonstra nemurirea sufletului Zamolxis a disparut intr-o camera subterana a templului sau intr-o pestera din apropiere, unde a stat trei ani, iar in anul al patrulea a reaparut.
Unul dintre ei spune ca aici a fost localizat, dupa legenda, pestera profetului Zamolxis, elevul lui Pitagora, care s-a retras timp de trei ani in pestera dealului Kogaion si apoi iesind de acolo a aratat ca s-ar fi intors din lumea spiritelor.

And they assert that Pythagoras learned from the Egyptians his system of numbers and measures; and I being struck by the plausible, fanciful, and not easily revealed wisdom of the priests, he himself likewise, in imitation of them, enjoined silence, and made his disciples lead a solitary life in underground chapels.
And the Celtic Druids investigated to the very highest point the Pythagorean philosophy, after Zamolxis, by birth a Thracian, a servant of Pythagoras, became to them the originator of this discipline.
Now after the death of Pythagoras, Zamolxis, repairing thither, became to them the originator of this philosophy.

 The True Origin and MEANING of the "TRINITY"
Much later, across centuries, Clement from Alexandria was reproaching to the Greeks a "lack of originality" within their own civilization, and that these would have learned from Thracians their curative incantation formulas: "Sanas incantationes a Thracibulus accepisti" (in Latin, from: Clement of Alexandria, "Appeal Towards Nations", Migne, page 18, column 175b).
Similar accounts are also made by Hellanicos from Mithilenes, by the Great Plato, Mnasea (this last one was even considering Zamolxis as the Eternity God Chronos!), Diodorus from Sicily, Strabon mostly, Apulleius, Lucianus from Samosatas, Orygenes, Porphyrius (232-304) and Julian the Apostle, Aeneas from Ghaza, and Hesychios from Alexandria.
While Zamolxis represented a God of the "Underworld", Gebeleizis was the "Heavenly" God.
