Dionysus offers a sharp contrast to the gods/godhead of Western religions. We would surely never find a god of chaos, disorder and intoxication in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Also characteristic of Greek gods is their entirely human appearance. He resembles a human, and, unlike Indian gods, bears no extra appendages to identify as suprahuman. In opposition to Western religions, the Greeks embraced some level of chaos and saw value in it, even engaging in Dionysian ecstatic rituals involving intoxication and sex. Apollo, who brought order to the world, was counterbalanced with Dionysus. Both are necessary and complete each other according to Greek mythology. In many respects we can see that Greek notions of the godly and supernatural sharply differ from Western ones.
