Jeon Leon Gerome, The Bacchante (Head of a Woman) (c.1853) In Greek mythology In Greek mythology, maenads were the female followers of Dionysus and the most significant members of the Thiasus, the god's retinue. Their name literally translates as "raving ones". Maenads were known as Bassarids, Bacchae or Bacchantes in Roman mythology after the penchant of the equivalent Roman god, Bacchus, to wear a bassaris or fox-skin.
Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzythrough a combination of dancing and intoxication.During these rites, the maenads would dress in fawn skins and carry a thyrsus, a long stick wrapped in ivy or vine leaves and tipped with a pine cone. They would weave ivy-wreaths around their heads or wear a bull helmet in honor of their god, and often handle or wear snakes.These women were mythologized as the 'mad women' who were nurses of Dionysus in Nysa: Lycurgus "chased the Nurses of the frenzied Dionysus through the holy hills of Nysa, and the sacred implements dropped to the ground from the hands of one and all, as the murderous Lycurgus struck them down with his ox-goad".They went into the mountains at night and practiced strange rites.According to Plutarch's Life of Alexander, maenads were called Mimallones and Klodonesin Macedon, epithets derived from the feminine art of spinning wool.Nevertheless, these warlike parthenoi ("virgins") from the hills, associated with a Dionysios pseudanor "fake male Dionysus", routed an invading enemy.In southern Greece they were described with Bacchae,Bassarides,Thyiades, Potniades and other epithets.The term maenad has come to be associated with a wide variety of women, supernatural, mythological, and historical,associated with the god Dionysus and his worship.In Euripides' play The Bacchae, maenads of Thebes murder King Pentheus after he bans the worship of Dionysus. Dionysus, Pentheus' cousin, himself lures Pentheus to the woods, where the maenads tear him apart. His corpse is mutilated by his own mother, Agave, who tears off his head, believing it to be that of a lion. A group of maenads also kill Orpheus. #JeanLeonGerome#Gerome#Bacchante#MuseedartsdeNantes
