The relationship between the ancient Greeks and their gods was well known and existed publicly in daily life. However, from very early times, mystery cults began to emerge that were accessible only to those who had been accepted into the rites following certain trials. The most famous ‘Mysteries’ in antiquity were those of Eleusis and Samothrace. The exhibition is organized in cooperation with the Ephorates of Rodopi and Evros and will be open to the public until 30 September 2015.
