Autodenunț: Este singura carte pe care am furat-o. Nu la figurat, ci la propriu. Patronul pentru care lucram cândva depozitase mormane de cărți direct pe mochetă, cele mai multe tipărite in anii '70-80, într-o cameră aflată în construcție, neîncălzită și cu pereți neizolați prin care se infiltra umezeala. Intram în acea cameră când îmi suna telefonul mobil și fie aveam nevoie să vorbesc în liniște cu un client, fie era o conversație privată. Mi-a sărit în ochi coperta galbenă a acestei cărți și ...more

In volume I of “A History of Religious Ideas”, Mircea Eliade opens on page 5 with explanation of a ritual of “mystical solidarity” from the Stone Age, that I have not read anywhere else.
In this ritual hunter-gatherers see the blood of the prey as similar in every respect to their blood; and by killing the prey they identify themselves with their prey for two reasons. They seek redemption for the sin of killing their prey, and they identify with their prey to maintain their unique system of surv

Eliade's fabulous three-volume history of religions is essential reading for any serious scholar of comparative religions. His range of knowledge and research is enormous. This collection has been my frequent companion for lo these many years.

Eliade is THE seminal thinker of the 20th century on comparative religions. This is his master reference. Anyone serious about comparative religions should not be without this three volume work.

This is a three-volume set. Don't expect a wow out of this book. Just a bunch of information that you might have previously read in any other books. It is good for a reference for a student but nothing will sweep you off your feet and you won't come out of it say, "Wow, what a finding, wow, what a discovery". In fact, the opposite may be true: a big yawn!
الكتاب مهم لكن الترجمة سيئة جدا

Christian Irigaray
These compilations on the History of Religions around the world are great and very easy to read. They are a must for anyone interested in the subject of comparative religion and mythology and the discovery of the psychological archetypes that are universally found around the world and in all ages. A History of Religious Ideas is written in a very friendly manner and exposes the universal principles of religion in the history of humanity. We will add as a notice that we encountered the 4th volume ...more

Taş devrinden Eleusis Mysterialarına kadarki döneme ilişkin birebir arkeolojik kazılardan edinen bilgilerden yola çıkarak o dönemlerin yaşam şartları ve koşullarını,inanışları ve efsaneleri gayet akıcı ve öğretici şekilde açıklamıştır.

Reading this 3 volume work by Mircea Eliade has been an incredibly rewarding experience. It takes not only time and patience, but some historical knowledge, as it assumes that the reader is already familiar with its whole background. For example, for one to really appreciate the chapters on the Old Testament, one needs, at least superficially, to know a bit about the mess it already was in the Middle East back in the days. But the reader can easily look up those background-knowledge things by th ...more

Make sure you have a really good dictionary on hand, but other than that this book is a really wonderful resource.

Not an easy read obviously, dictionary and wikipedia are a must during reading. The book was really interesting when I managed to understand what was being said there.

A seminal book on how early religion emerged.
ترجمة سيئة جداً للأسف لكتاب مهم لمؤرخ مهم
Mohamed Al-Moslemany
لغة أكاديمية صعبة ومعقدة تهتم بأقل التفاصيل فتهمل المعنى الأساسى، و ترجمة مزرية تكاد لا تفهم أى شيء.
قرأت 150 صفحة ثم توقفت لم أخرج منها إلى بالصداع والكثير من الملل وعليها خيبة الأمل.

A typical Eliadian book, in many parts of the book he indicates the similarity between the rituals of some cultures and shamanism.

Il est impossible de choisir les mots qui peuvent decrire la diversite, mais surtout l`unite des religions.
Cette lecture est surprenante et reflechit le genie du Mircea Eliade!
