GAR0248 Books of Interest: Jaan PUHVEL -‘Comparative mythology’

last  |   next


DESCRIPTION: “In a magisterial work, Jaan Puhvel unravels the prehistoric Indo-European origins of the traditions of India and Iran, Greece and Rome, of the Celts, Germans, Balts, and Slavs. Utilizing the methodologies of historical linguistics and archaeology, he reconstructs a shared religious, mythological, and cultural heritage. Separate chapters on individual traditions as well as on recurrent themes – god and warrior, king and virgin, fire and water – give life to Comparative Mythology as both a general introduction and a detailed reference.”
