P, “OH”.   Deux points seront évoqués dans cette introduction, mais ne seront pas développés plus avant: la question de l’auteur et celle du rapport entre le prologue et les hymnes individuels. Lobeck pensait que les Hymnes orphiques étaient le travail d’un érudit, un pur exercice de style14. Cet avis, vivement critiqué par la suite, a été contredit par la découverte d’inscriptions qui comportaient les noms des divinités rares figurant dans les Hymnes.

Il ne s’agit donc pas d’un prologue au sens habituel de ce terme. D’aucuns l’appellent prooemium ou eujchv17. J’ai choisi de conserver un nom français pour cette partie: il faut cependant l’interpréter comme une première prière adressée aux dieux. Plus aigu que le problème de dénomination est celui des rapports entre le prologue et le reste du texte. Kern pensait déjà que le prologue et les hymnes avaient des auteurs distincts18. West va dans le même sens et considère que lorsque Jean Galenos cite les textes et écrit oJ ∆Orfeu;" ejn toi'" qumivoi" ajrwvmasi, il a le début des hymnes sous 14 L, Aglaophamus, p.
