Nouvelle Mythologie Comparée (New Comparative Mythology) est une publication pluridisciplinaire qui tentera de renouer avec les grandes heures de la mythologie comparée tout en... 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
This Is the Sun?: Zeitgeist and Religion (Volume I: Comparative Religion) By Albert McIlhenny
Paperback: $24.99
Ships in 3-5 business days
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

Myths and myth-makers: Old Tales and Superstitions Interpreted by Comparative Mythology
Men of Old, Men of Renown By Anand Madhu
Paperback: $20.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
"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
Atlantis the Antediluvian World By Ignatius Donnelly

(14 Ratings)
At the center of Donnelly's thesis are a set of similarities between widely separated cultures. This he interpreted as evidence that all civilization diffused outward from a central point (a now... More > sunken continent in the mid-Atlantic). He cites mythological, linguistic, ethnographic and other evidence for this theory, which at the time seemed to add up to an airtight case. Donnelly proposes a literal interpretation of Plato's account of Atlantis. He also ties Atlantis into the global flood myth-complex. These, until recently, have been two of the most compelling unsolved puzzles of history. What was Plato writing about when he described the prehistoric civilization of Atlantis, which disappeared overnight in a great catastrophe? Was this an actual historical account, or a philosophical fable? And why do widely separated cultures on every continent, Australia, the Americas, Europe and Asia all have a similar myth of a great flood from which only a few humans survived to restart civilization?< Less
The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors By Kersey Graves

This is one of the most controversial books about the Christian narrative of Jesus ever published. Graves tried to gather together all of what was known at the time about other similar stories of... More > gods who walked the earth, preached ethical and mystical doctrines, and ended up as Deicides. Today, folklorists have discovered a set of world-wide themes relating a story of a culture-hero who has a miraculous birth and tragic death. This is one of the archetypal stories which Jung and Campbell discussed. This does not lessen the impact, however, on traditional believers in these narratives as the absolute truth. So is the need for a deathless hero who saves humanity part of the deep structure of our brain? Is religion simply filling a psychological need which is part of being human? The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors raised a host of questions, few of which have yet been adequately answered, over a century later.< Less
