Palabras persas en el mitraísmo: la construcción de una imagen oriental del culto mitraico = Persian Words in Mithraism: The Construction of an Oriental Image of Mithraic Cult

Israel Campos Méndez

Resumen


La cuestión de la procedencia oriental del culto mitraico se ha sostenido tradicionalmente en el propio origen persa del dios Mitra y por la presencia de otros testimonios en el culto vinculados con este territorio. El análisis en profundidad de las evidencias epigráficas en torno a la palabra “nama” nos permiten establecer la hipótesis de un empleo tardío de este término y por tanto permiten señalar un uso interesado para fomentar una representación oriental del culto mitraico romano.

The question of the western origin of the Mithraic cult has been supported traditionally by the own Persian origin of the god Mithra and by the presence of other testimonies in the worship linked by this territory. The analysis of the epigraphic evidence concerning the word "nama" allow us to establish the hypothesis of a late incorporation of this expression and therefore they allow to indicate a use interested to promote an oriental representation of the Roman Mithraic cult.
