Abstract

Le scandale des Bacchanales, en 186, se comprend, non seulement grâce aux deux textes bien connus, mais aussi par l'étude du sanctuaire souterrain de Bolsena, et plus encore, du contexte social et religieux en ce début du IIe siècle. L'Affaire apparaît d'abord comme un mouvement secret de protestation, venu surtout des milieux de l'aristocratie campanienne. Elle exprime une nouvelle religiosité, d'inspiration néopythagoricienne : on retrouve la même inspiration en Etrurie où la religion traditionnelle en est renouvelée. On la retrouve aussi dans les milieux les plus officiels de Rome. L'article se présente comme une réflexion sur l'ouvrage de J.-M. Pailler, Bacchanalia. The scandal of the Bacchanalia in 186 can be understood not only through two well-known texts, but also through the examination of the underground sanctuary at Bolsena, and even more so through the study of the social and religious context at the beginning of the second century B.C. At first, the Affair appears as a secret movement of protest arising mostly from the circles of the Campanian aristocracy. It expresses a new form of religious feeling of neopythagorian inspiration. The same inspiration can be traced in Etruria where it brought about a renewal of traditional religion. It can also be traced in the most official circles in Rome. The article is meant as a reflection on J.M. Pailler's work : Bacchanalia.
