For those who aren't familiar with Dionysus, he's the greek God of wine.  There's a lot of similarities between him and Jesus.  Dionysus was born on December 25 and also he was also the god of wine.  Remember Jesus can turn water into wine as well.  Anyways, here are fragments of the Dionysus temple.  I don't think he ever existed, and more like it was an occult schools of mysteries.  Below is a quote from Manly P. Hall on the mysteries of Dionysus.  As occultists, we believe that all theology has had some form of pagan influence.  

Manly P Hall Quote The Secret Teaching Of All Ages:


In the Anacalypsis, Godfrey Higgins conclusively establishes Bacchus (Dionysos) as one of the early pagan forms of the Christos myth, "The birthplace of Bacchus, called Sabazius or Sabaoth, was claimed by several places in Greece; but on Mount Zelmisus, in Thrace, his worship seems to have been chiefly celebrated. He was born of a virgin on the 25th of December; he performed great miracles for the good of mankind; particularly one in which he changed water into wine; he rode in a triumphal procession on an butt; he was put to death by the Titans, and rose again from the dead on the 25th of March: he was always called the Saviour. In his mysteries, he was shown to the people, as an infant is by the Christians at this day, on Christmas Day morning in Rome."

Below is quotes from the article I've posted.  


The architect of the temple was Hermogenes of Priene who planned it based on his 'eustyle principle' (eustylos meaning the beautiful style). It was an architectural ideal that prescribed a series of proportional relationships that was all derived from the diameter of the column. More precisely, the ideal 'eustyle' intercolumniation (i.e. the space between the columns) should be two-and-a-quarter column-thicknesses and the height of the Ionic column nine-and-a-half times its diameter.


The Temple of Dionysos was built entirely of marble within the borders of a trapezoidal-shaped temenos, on a high crepidoma (i.e. a multilevel platform). The temple was surrounded with 6x11 columns, and the dimensions of its stylobate (i.e. the foundation of a row of classical columns) are 18.50 to 35 meters. These impressive dimensions mean that it was the largest temple to Dionysus in the ancient world. The temenos of the temple was surrounded by four stoas: two Doric ones (north and south) and two Ionic ones (west and east).

I heard about Mithra many years ago there are different views on him. He was around before Jesus' time. He has many similarities. Including being born on Dec 25th by a virgin, son of a sun god (demi god in old lore), his father worked with wood, and so on. This is just one version of the 2 their parallels as well. Christianity took alot from surrounding religions. I'm not saying they stole it, just saying they used some references. Many religions do this. The wiki article also covers your Dionysus information.

A Journey into Light and Shadow. A place where the line is blurred between both worlds.

Nothing is as it seems. Shadow doesn't always mean evil and light doesn't always mean divine.
