Back Mitraruna - General

The Mitraruna are the essential thought-concepts of Mithraism.

NB There is no definitive compilation of these, but we list a few of them here which are not mentioned elsewhere.


Holum is the Whole or World.

Holum is the whole of active existence viewed as one entity.

The limits of Holum are the limits of activity. A feature of Holum is that the different parts of Holum have connection to each other and influence or can potentially influence each other.

Bonum & Malum

Bonum is The Good.

Malum is The Bad

Dreg, Dregor, Angramanus

Dreg is Deviation from what is good, true and right.

Dregor (or Dreggor in English) is the being that causes Dreg or Deviation. Dreggor is the Devil and the negative counterpart to the Ashura.

Angramanus (or Angraman in English) is the mental spirit associated with unrighteous action. Angraman is the negative counterpart to Spentaman.

NB Angraman only has power when infecting the mind of a person, whereas Dreggor has independent intelligence and power with respect to any particular person. (i.e. being a good-thinking person is incompatible with being infected with Angraman, but it doesn't make one immune to attacks by Dreggor). Of course Dreggor, like most activity in the world, ultimately depends on working through human minds for its power.


Ratus is the universal righteous guide - what connects us to Ashura and knowledge of Vaius.

Ratus has many forms of which one is Mitra.
