Mircea Eliade, Dictionnaire des Religions

#1
Dictionnaire des Religions
by Mircea Eliade

Book | Long read that can be segmented

Don’t be alarmed by it’s title, the "Dictionary of Religions" is a fascinating book, and one of my all-time favorites! As he completed his monumental: “History of Religious Beliefs and Ideas”, Mircea Eliade wished to unite the result of a life devoted to the history of religions in one volume. This dictionary is the fruit of this phenomenal work. It offers not only important articles on the different religions of the world but also a series of observations on the founders of religion, prophets, sacred books and various spiritual currents that have marked the religious history of mankind.
