In Orphism - in contrast to the religion of Olympus - the soul and the spirit are the most important value. The spirit, not the body. For the first time the depth of the spiritual becomes of primary importance. At this depth, love and live the song, and they are more important than death. Death, according to the teaching Orphic, no power over depth. It is the power to sweep aside superficial, shallow depth and liberating spirit. The great German poet Rilke XX century devotes a cycle of sonnets to Orpheus, which reveals the essence of "human immortality".
