CALAME, Claude. ¿Qué es lo que es Órfico en los Orphica?: La poesía atribuida a Orfeo. Synthesis (La Plata) [online]. 2004, vol.11, pp. 11-29. ISSN 0328-1205.
After the publication in recent years of various poetical texts considered as inspired by Orphism, time has come to have a critical look to such a classification; its reasons are far from clear. That offers an occasion to question the cultic role of these new texts, the status of Orphism as a religious movement in classical Greece , the functions assumed by Orpheus as a hero and a founder, and the role played by writing in the composition of Orphic poems.
