Coribanti

Postby maple62 » 31 Jul 2006, 03:00

I've come across some text relating to a village in Matera that I'm researching... San Mauro Forte, which is titled "I Coribanti Superstiti"

It's not difficult to translate superstiti but can anyone help me with the meaning of Coribanti please?

Thanks

Michael

The coribanti were priests.

This is from Wikipedia and is their electronic translation(not very good). But if you do a Google search on 'coribanti' or 'Corybant' (for English) it will describe them for you.
