The Greeks worshipped Dionysus and honored him widely and often. In fact, Greek drama was written as part of the great Dionysian celebrations. In this program, we learn about Semele, Dionysus' mother, and the efforts of Hermes and Apollo to save the baby's life; the purification of Dionysus; how mortals received the gift of the grape, and the dangers it can cause; and how Dionysus freed Hera from Hephaestus' golden net. Also discussed are Theseus, Ariadne, and the labyrinth; the marriage of Ariadne and Dionysus; Dionysus and Silenus; and Dionysus and the Maenads.
