Myths & Legends: An Illustrated Guide to Their Origins and Meanings
A beautiful book on mythologies in different cultures and parts of the world. Very nice graphical presentation. The more you read books on mythology you wonder why religions are not included in the same category.
The same ideas – floods, angels, spirits and demons and resurrections. Probably because there is a difference between myths that are believed no more and those that are still believed by a lot of people. Nov 30, Bryan Mcquirk wilknson it it was amazing Shelves: This is a great source of knowledge on the myths and legends which drove religious beliefs of ancient and pagan societies, before the monotheistic religions took over.
