    How to use "Bacchanal" in context?

    Okay, so what is a bacchanal? Webster defines it as "a large, drunken revelry", while The Free Dictionary defines it as a "feast or orgy of licentiousness". Bacchanals were common in ancient Greece and Rome and were usually held in honor of a deity, such as Dionysus or Isis. The events could be quite extravagant, with large numbers of people intoxicated, dancing and singing. Some believe that the bacchanal was also a place where political conspiracy was hatched. Bacchanals were frowned upon by the church, but were nonetheless a popular part of Roman culture.
