ever so gently to transform Christ back into the soothsaying god of the vine, which he was, and in this way absorb those ecstatic instinctual forces of Christianity for the one purpose of making the cult and the sacred myth what they once were - a drunken feast of joy where man regained the ethos and holiness of an animal.
umm eww? Thats horrible. How is that even scholarly? Sounds like trash to me. Its strange to me that someone who uses big words is considered a scholar.
