Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a detailed introduction of the deities in the Middle East. The first deity is called Zeus-Jupiter represented in an epigraphical and archaeological manner. The religious figure of the Zeus-Jupiter is regular outcome of the Greco-Roman interpretation of Baal Hadad. The second deity is called Dionysus/Dusares whose figure is no longer to be demonstrated in the Middle East and elsewhere. The third deity is called Nemesis seen as the mirror of the society of the living. The popularity of the Nemesis to the Roman era is undeniable. Written or sculptured representations of imperial power s' often based on an analogy with the divine figures in order to divert their eternal essence, which appears to be an old game of traditional and authoritarian rule. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Dionysus/Dusares; imperial power; Middle East; Nemesis; Zeus-Jupiter
