In The Religion of the Ancient Celts, author J.A. MacCulloch introduces a different view of the ancient Celts as he dives into the mysterious world of the ancient Celts. Focusing on the scientific study that indulges in the wild, speculative notions of the Celts, this book touches on the sagas, worships, festivals, influencers, magic, and the transition of eras from Pagan to Christianity, and ideals. As readers begin their journey into this ancient world and ideals, they will uncover a deep, and complex culture and society. The book provides an enlightened understanding of the Celtic psyche in relation to how they view their place in the universe of religious beliefs. They are portrayed as being able to define the concept of God and the supernatural by their ritualized forms of worship and shamanistic (purveyors of mystical) practices. The book offers a rare perspective on how the ancient Celts found kinship with what they conceived to be spirits personified in nature. Providing a cultural investigation into why they once worshiped mountains, knolls, rivers, lakes, forests, and the stars. The druids who were the ritual providers of the time were seen as shaman, priest, and magician who officiated over sacred rites and spaces for the dead such as burial mounds, adhered to a benevolent view of the afterlife, rebirth, and the transmigration of the spirit.

The final book in Philip K. Dick’s VALIS trilogy, The Transmigration of Timothy Archer brings the author’s search for the identity and nature of God to a close. The novel follows Bishop Timothy Archer as he travels to Israel, ostensibly to examine ancient scrolls bearing the words of Christ. But more importantly, this leads him to examine the decisions he made during his life and how they may have contributed to the suicides of his mistress and son. This introspective book is one of Dick’s most philosophical and literary, delving into the mysteries of religion and of faith itself.

Clues to T.C. Lethbridge's books lie in their subtitles. Witches: Investigating an Ancient Religion is no exception. In his study of the old pagan gods of Britain, Lethbridge believed that witch cults had their roots in prehistory and eventually became a religion of the suppressed classes.Similarities between eastern and ancient western religions provided him with evidence of ancient collusion. He believed Britain's island status acted as a filter for external inflences and ideas. No belief on the continent ever arrived intact which made the study of British customs so intriguing.His study of Dianic belief and the transmigration of souls led him to believe in a universal, controlling intelligence. He linked the concept of the evolving mind with the Laws of Karma, the Avatars and other religious teachings of the world and concluded that Druidic belief was not a million miles away from modern psychical research.

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Nationally syndicated journalist Georgie Anne Geyer explores the connections between the royal and sacred felines of ancient civilizations and the beloved domestic cats of today. Chasing an irresistible mystery across the globe, journalist Georgie Anne Geyer conducted exhaustive research into the little-known puzzle of how cats came to occupy their unique position in the lives of humans. Treated with the tenacity, resourcefulness, and narrative instinct of a seasoned foreign correspondent, the investigation yielded unexpected answers--and posed tantalizing new questions. The result is a remarkable book, bound to delight and amaze cat fanciers and adventure seekers. It was Geyer´s curiosity about her own cats that inspired her to study the history of human-feline relations and especially cats´ exalted status among the ancients as royal or sacred beings. Her quest spanned the earth. In Egypt, Geyer learned of the cat-goddess, Bastet, and of the cat´s role in the transmigration of souls. In Myanmar, she saw Leonardo DiCaprio, Ricky Martin, and the other incongruously named cats of the Nga Phe Kyaung monastery, trained by the monks to jump through hoops. She even met a family who dutifully guards the heritage of the Japanese bobtail, cultivating the line in--of all places--rural Virginia. Richly illustrated with photos of Geyer´s journeys and historical cat images, When Cats Reigned Like Kings also presents a Family of Cat section that describes the origins and characteristics of the 38-40 recognized modern cat breeds, including photos of each.

Reincarnation
35,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Hermann Lotze, the German philosopher, in his magnificent Microcosm, argues that the idea of a transmigration of souls remains a dream of the fancy, nor has anyone yet succeeded in giving it a higher moral significance for the order of the universe. The ethical leverage of the doctrine of reincarnation is immense. Its motive power is great. It reveals as magnificent a background to the present life, with its contradictions and disasters, as the prospect of immortality opens up an illimitable foreground, lengthening out the horizon of hope. It binds together the past, the present and the future in one ethical series of causes and effects. In Reincarnation, a Study of Forgotten Truth, the author goes through an extensive study of the Bible, ancient poetry and writings, Western literature, the Christendom, and the religions of the East to answer one fundamental question: We cannot yet have learned all that we are meant to learn through the body; how much of the teaching even of this world can the most diligent and most favored man have exhausted before he is called to leave it; does all that remain lost?
