More > évitant les défauts méthodologiques de ses précurseurs. Inspirée, mais sans dogmatisme, à la fois par le structuralisme de Claude Lévi-Strauss et de Georges Dumézil, par la linguistique de Calvert Watkins, ou par la sémiologie de Vyacheslav Ivanov ou de Julien-Algirdas Greimas, elle publiera des travaux qui non seulement reposeront sur une base philologique et historique solide, mais pourront s'ouvrir à des disciplines connexes telles que la linguistique, l'archéologie ou l'ethnologie. Les articles auront pour but d'expliquer, par le biais du comparatisme, les grands mythes du monde, sans barrière géographique ni temporelle, en s'intéressant à leur sens, à leur structure et à leur évolution historique.< Less

Paperback: $24.99

The film Zeitgeist became an overnight internet sensation with its claims Christianity was based upon a pagan solar mythology. This idea, developed in the eighteenth century but dismissed as... More > ridiculous by scholars, has held support among anti-religious and occultic thinkers and recently was popularized by conspiracy theorists. In the first of a two volume critique of these ideas, Albert McIlhenny takes on the claims of its best known supporters. By the end of this volume, the theory of "astrotheology" is show to be based on various historical mistakes popular in early modernity but since shown to be erroneous. It is demonstrated the source of its current support is not based upon any evidence but the wild claims of conspiracy theorists dressed up to look like scholarship.< Less

The 19 chapters are divided over... More > five parts: (1) Introduction (2) The Mythology of Death and Dying, (3) Mythological Continuities between Africa and Other Continents, (4) Theoretical and Methodological Advances, (5) Work-in-Progress. This volume demonstrates that comparative mythology is no longer over-specialised antiquarian scholarship, but (with a wide range of auxiliary fields – from genetics to linguistics, ethnography, archaeology, statistics, and classics) has become an exciting, rapidly expanding domain of theoretical and methodological reflection, and an ever widening window on humankind’s remoter cultural history. Increasingly transcontinental in subject matter and in scholarly participation, new growth points are: (a) death as a mythical domain (b) Africa’s place in the wider cultural history of humankind as a whole.< Less

"Now giants ("Nephilim") were upon the earth in those days, and also afterward. For after the sons of God had intercourse with the daughters of men, they brought forth children, who... More > were the mighty men of old, men of renown". - Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim were the heroes and Kings of men, yet they were treated unjustly by the usual suspects, that ad-hoc union of envious groupists and sophists. And If the sophists were to have had their way, not even the echo of the lamentations of the Nephilim was to have passed over the mountains of that day, much less survived into our own days! Luckily, the sophists themselves have told us the story about the Nephilim, for such is human heroism; the heroism of the sophists, to be, though indeed cryptic, brave enough to let us know at least indirectly by means of mythologies the story of the Nephilim; and the heroism of the Nephilim, to have been so heroic in their days that the stories they made were difficult to conceal, even for the most hard-hearted of sophists.< Less
