The Atlas of Lost Cults and Mystery Religions: Rediscover Extraordinary Traditions from the Dawn of Time

The Atlas of Lost Cults and Mystery Religions: Rediscover Extraordinary Traditions from the Dawn of Time Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Atlas of Lost Cults and Mystery Religions examines extraordinary cults and spiritual practices, some lost in the mists of time, others having transformed and evolved to form the basis of mystical practices still current today.

A wide range of traditions are explored, from the mysterious snake worshipping goddesses of the ancient Minoans to the Cathars of medieval France, believed by some to be the protectors of the Holy Grail.

The book will examine the practices ofo the Celtic Druids which have inspired present day Pagan and Wiccan traditions, and the wild Dionusian rites of ancient Greece. Lavish artwork reconstructions will show the temple precincts and mystical practices of selected cults and religions.
