ARCHEOSOPHICAL DRAMATURGY THE TRAGEDY AND THE DRAMA IN THE SCENIC REPRESENTATION OF THE SACRED MYSTERIESThe dramatic and tragic art was used in the celebration of the Mysteries because the actor, thanks to his mimic expression, the use of the word and the sacral investiture, produced in the spectators, by the means of the compassion and of the fear, a purification of the passions, without mention of the real telepathic influence exercised by the artists on the receptive. The cathartic function of the Mysteric representation is similar to the iconognosis we have mentioned in Booklet 18: ‘Mysteric Experience of the Holy Grail‘. The theology of the icon, that is, of the picture painted for purposes of cult and of meditation, is well associated with the dramaturgy, because in the esoteric theater in particular, the scenery with its colors and its symbols, the actors, the music, the songs, take the place of the icon, but a mobile icon, the fixation, meditation and contemplation of which results in the metaphysical awakening of the aspirant to the deification. We would like to continue with this, but the esoteric didactics advises giving the pearls one at a time.
