Daca a fi sau a deveni om este,asa cum spune Eliade,a fi "religios",inseamna ca areligiozitatea reprezinta o instrainare de esenta proprie. This master piece was an amazing experience which brought me through millenniums of human imaginations and ideals.
I instantly knew that I am going to read these books again in few years, to remind me who we are and who we have been. The last book was about modern religions up to the reformation era, 17th century , it describes different Catholic "sects", ways of thinking understanding as well as Muslim various aspects, oriental religious concepts and others it is not my intention to name th This master piece was an amazing experience which brought me through millenniums of human imaginations and ideals.
The last book was about modern religions up to the reformation era, 17th century , it describes different Catholic "sects", ways of thinking understanding as well as Muslim various aspects, oriental religious concepts and others it is not my intention to name them; but one was very interesting: religious concept of old Provence culture - god and love towards women. I have been enlightened by how religious frameworks were able to assimilate older and different "schools and symbols", how thinkers and theologians were adjusting religious issues to their time and cultures. I highly recommend these books to everybody who want to understand our world and people.
It should be taught at schools, then we might be more tolerant and empathetic.

This volume completes the immensely learned three-volume A History of Religious Ideas. Eliade examines the movement of Jewish thought out of ancient Eurasia, the Christian transformation of the Mediterranean area and Europe, and the rise and diffusion of Islam from approximately the sixth through the seventeenth centuries. Eliade's vast knowledge of past and present scholarship provides a synthesis that is unparalleled.
In addition to reviewing recent interpretations of the individual traditions, he explores the interactions of the three religions and shows their continuing mutual influence to be subtle but unmistakable. As in his previous work, Eliade pays particular attention to heresies, folk beliefs, and cults of secret wisdom, such as alchemy and sorcery, and continues the discussion, begun in earlier volumes, of pre-Christian shamanistic practices in northern Europe and the syncretistic tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
