In Orphic mysteries, the soul is considered of Divine origin. "The soul, according to the Orphic view, is of celestial origin and divine. It is a particula divinae aurae, a particle of the pure empyrean substance or aether. “From heaven is my descent, as ye yourselves know also”—such is the language in which the departed soul addresses the Gods of the lower world; and again, “for I, too, claim to be of your blest race.” Man is “a child of earth and starry heaven."[1]
