The Icarian Picnic is the last trace of ancient festivals devoted to Dionysus, the spirit of wine and ecstasy, later considered a patron of the arts. The Greek Byzantine chain dance was a relic of the Dionysian procession.
The Eastern Orthodox faith was devoted to a celebration of life. The saints’ days are commemorated with numerous feasts. There are two types of feasts in the Orthodox Church calendar: fixed and movable.
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.” (Rev 22:17)
According to some legends, the Messiah will bring to his lavish banquet a fine old wine, which has matured in paradise since the creation of the world. Where Jesus is quoted as saying “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman (John 15:1),” clearly the wine feast of Dionysus (also known as Bacchus) was a part model.
Recently, scholars have been re-examining the feasts in Homer’s account of what he called the Palace of Nestor in Pylos. According to remains unearthed at Pylos in 1952, the ancient feasts gathered thousands of people and offered vast quantities of food. Some feasts may have served upward of 8,000 people, far more than lived within the palace walls. They served a purpose similar to inaugural balls, community banquets, and other modern-day events: to seal an agreement or solidify a traditional relationship.
In the 1930s, the annual Icarian Picnic evolved into a weekend convention in a fine hotel. The picnic may be one reason the inhabitants of this Greek island live long and healthy lives.
