Greco-Roman mysteries

Definition[edit] The term "Mystery" derives from Latin mysterium, from Greek mysterion (usually as the plural mysteria μυστήρια), in this context meaning "secret rite or doctrine". An individual who followed such a "Mystery" was a mystes, "one who has been initiated", from myein "to close, shut", a reference to secrecy (closure of "the eyes and mouth")[4]:56 or that only initiates were allowed to observe and participate in rituals. The Mysteries were thus cults in which all religious functions were closed to the uninitiated and for which the inner workings of the cult were kept secret from the general public.

Characteristics[edit] Mystery religions form one of three types of Hellenistic religion, the others being the imperial cult or ethnic religion particular to a nation or state, and the philosophic religions such as Neoplatonism. Mysteries thus supplement rather than compete with civil religion. Greek Stories about Zeus-The Birth of Zeus, the King of the Gods. Zeus was born by the Titans Cronus and Rhea.

Tendances spatio-temporelles de la qualité du sperme en France / Actualités / Actualités. La revue Reproduction vient de publier les résultats de l’étude menée par l’InVS sur les tendances spatio-temporelles de la qualité du sperme en France.

Ce travail s’inscrit dans la continuité de l’étude réalisée par l’Institut et publiée en décembre 2012 dans la revue Human Reproduction. Cette première étude concluait à un déclin de la qualité du sperme en France (concentration et morphologie des spermatozoïdes) dans un échantillon proche de la population générale entre 1989 et 2005. Cette étude était innovante par rapport aux éléments disponibles antérieurement à ce sujet en France, du fait notamment de l’échantillon étudié (26 609 hommes), couvrant la totalité du territoire métropolitain sur une période importante (17 ans). Les résultats montrent que la concentration et la qualité morphologique des spermatozoïdes a baissé dans la quasi-totalité des régions avec une diminution plus importante en Aquitaine et Midi-Pyrénées.
