Yes, clever clogs Martin and Jeni got the ID of our mystery wine drinking and pissing cherub quite correct.
Here’s a brief biog:
Dionysus was born of a virgin on December 25 and, as the Holy Child, was placed in a manger. He was a travelling teacher who performed miracles. He “rode in a triumphal procession on an ass.” He was a sacred king killed and eaten in an eucharistic ritual for fecundity and purification. Dionysus rose from the dead on March 25. He was the God of the Vine, and turned water into wine. He was called “King of Kings” and “God of Gods.” He was considered the “Only Begotten Son,” Savior,” “Redeemer,” “Sin Bearer,” Anointed One,” and the “Alpha and Omega.” He was identified with the Ram or Lamb. His sacrificial title of “Dendrites” or “Young Man of the Tree” intimates he was hung on a tree or crucified.
Jesus Christ! you might say.
