excerpt from LOST SECRETS OF THE MYSTERY SCHOOLS, by Earlyne Chaney:

Quote:
His (Orepheus) secret writings called The Sacred Vestiture and The Rite of the Girdle discribe initations of the candidates as they were invested with a band of coral or gold...


A "gridle" is worn around the waist...such were Elvis' costume belts.

Thank you so much dear Maia for posting the link to the very interesting information on Orpheus for us and as sweet Sue said most certainly a possibility about the belts on Elvis' costumes! :D :wink: Thank you also Sue my dear friend for bringing this back since I missed it the first time around. :oops: :D

Thank you for the interesting Greek mythology lesson, Maia. I was more fascinated by it than I thought I would be. The connection between Elvis and Orpheus is delightful to think about, since Orpheus is credited with so much power and influence.

I always thought those belts just looked beautiful on Elvis. I wonder if he was aware of this symbolic meaning.
