Wicca is one of the most popular neo-pagan religion, which emphasizes on the peaceful relationship between the humans and nature. It is a religion that professes equality between men and women and emphasizes on a healthy coexisting relationship between humans and nature. Apart from this, the Wiccan philosophy is also largely based on magic and spell-casting. The Wicca religion also emphasizes and encourages on the transmigration of souls. There are many different interpretations of the Wiccan religious texts, but the general viewpoint is that the reincarnation of a soul is one of the pillars of the Wiccan way. One of the most common Wiccan theory is that when a person dies, their soul will temporarily reside in what they call "the land eternal summer", where they will prepare and wait for their next incarnation. This is the main difference between Wicca and other traditional Abrahamic religions.Wiccans do not seek to fulfill their religious goals just to simply attain a sure place in a heavenly kingdom or paradise. One of the main ethical laws of the Wiccan philosophy professes the following: do whatever you want upon Earth as long as it does not harm others. This saves the religion from the problematic gap between the transcendent and the real worlds that other Abrahamic and Dharmic religions usually have. Based on all these interesting concepts and theories, Wicca is a religion that greatly fascinates scientists and professors who are given the enjoyable task of researching on the development of various kinds of religions.Wicca is a neo-pagan religion that is heavily associated with magic and the Book of Shadows. Among the many things that fascinates people into studying about this religion is its philosophy of promoting equality between men and women and a harmonious relationship between humans and god. The presence of magic only adds to the fascination, as magic is one of the many things in life that still holds unraveled myster 1.

5,84 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

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 Concept of the Soul in Marcel Proust
66,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The concept of the soul in Platonic, Ciceronian, and Talmudic thought segues into the Celtic tradition, Thomas Aquinas, and Maeterlinck and threads its way through the tapestry of Proust's narrative and his principal characters. Bette H. Lustig uses a hermeneutic approach to the Proust texts, which are cited in French, and provides the analyses of the texts in English. Themes treating the soul include metempsychosis (transmigration), imprisonment and deliverance, eroticism and sadism, homophilia and misogyny, and time and memory. Moreover, the Celtic tradition is evident in the metempsychosis of souls to plants, animals, and inanimate objects, and their yearning to be delivered through a random encounter.Homophilia and misogyny are pendant themes. The strong preference for male company is articulated through gestures and choices by both author and characters. In Proust, homophilia leads to misogyny: disparaging, controlling, even abusive attitudes toward the souls of women, which are demonized and imprisoned. Their souls, provisionally free in sleep, do not reach total deliverance until death. The ecstasy of Platonic mystical union is shown only between two males.The soul of time travels at its own pace: by urgency, by seemingly slow passage, in narrative interruption or digression, chronological inversion, and in privileged moments. The soul of memory is present in odors or fragrances. Like Aquinas's substratum soul, it connects past and present. Its enemy is forgetfulness. Time and memory are also correlated in collective memory. Presented in a clear, lively style, this book would be excellent in courses on Proust, French literature, religion, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.

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.

The River Flows On
55,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The River Flows On is an impressively broad study of slave resistance in America, spanning the colonial and antebellum eras in both the North and South and covering all forms of recalcitrance, from major revolts and rebellions to everyday acts of disobedience. Walter C. Rucker analyzes American slave resistance with a keen understanding of its African influences while he also traces the emergence of an African American identity, orientation, consciousness, and culture. Rucker identifies African ethnic enclaves throughout the original thirteen colonies that produced unique modes of resistance, but he also points to the shared cultural heritage that facilitated collective action among both African- and American-born slaves. The ubiquitous belief in conjure and spiritual forces, the importance of martial dance and the drum, and ideas about the afterlife and transmigration all served as cultural bridges and fostered a sense of solidarity among slaves. Focusing on the role of African cultural and sociopolitical forces, Rucker gives in-depth attention to the 1712 New York City revolt, the 1739 Stono rebellion in South Carolina, the 1741 New York conspiracy, Gabriel Prosser's 1800 Richmond slave plot, and Denmark Vesey's 1822 Charleston scheme. He concludes with Nat Turner's 1831 revolt in Southampton, Virginia, which bore the marks of both conjure and Christianity, reflecting a new, African American consciousness. More than a basic human reaction to oppressive circumstances, slave resistance in early America was distinctly rooted in multiple strands of African ethnic heritage. With rich evidence drawn from anthropology, archaeology, and religion, The River Flows On is both innovative and convincing.
