Biblical Geography and History (Illustrated) By Charles Foster Kent
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“The term Palestine, originally applied to the home of Israel's foes, the Philistines, was used by the Greeks as a designation of southern Syria, exclusive of Phœnicia. The Greek... More > historian Herodotus was the first to employ it in this extended sense. The Romans used the same term in the form Palestina and through them the term Palestine has become the prevailing name in the western world of the land once occupied by the Israelites and their immediate neighbors on the east and west. The history of the older name Canaan (Lowland) is similar. In the Tell el-Amarna Letters, written in the fourteenth century B.C., Canaan is limited to the coast plains; but as the Canaanites, the Lowlanders, began to occupy the inland plains the use of the term was extended until it became the designation of all the territory from the Mediterranean to the Jordan and Dead Sea valley. It does not appear, however, to have ever been applied to the east-Jordan land.”< Less

Il presente saggio tratta in modo sintetico ma completo gli aspetti più importanti della tradizione egizia: la religione, la mitologia, i rituali, il culto dei morti, l’astronomia e... More > l’astrologia. Vengono poi spiegati i simbolismi e gli aspetti iniziatici delle aree archeologiche più rilevanti (templi, necropoli e piramidi), scoperti dall’autore durante una ricerca svolta in Egitto. Infine viene descritta la fase di trapasso dell’anima dall’aldiquà all’aldilà (detta Psicostasia) secondo il “Libro dei Morti” egizio, in base alla quale l’autore ha elaborato un percorso d’ipnosi progressiva che può essere eteroindotto (da un ipnoterapeuta) o autoindotto (da chi sia pratico di autoipnosi) per anticipare in modo virtuale l’esperienza della morte e così ricapitolare la vita, al fine di elaborare rimpianti e rimorsi e, tramite la maggiore consapevolezza così raggiunta, aumentare la propria responsabilità nel prendere decisioni e nel gestire la quotidianità.< Less
