In 1982, Harvard-trained ethnobotanist Wade Davis traveled into the Haitian countryside to research reports of zombies--the infamous living dead of Haitian folklore. A report by a team of physicians of a verifiable case of zombification led him to try to obtain the poison associated with the process and examine it for potential medical use. Interdisciplinary in nature, this study reveals a network of power relations reaching all levels of Haitian political life. It sheds light on recent Haitian political history, including the meteoric rise under Duvalier of the Tonton Macoute. By explaining zombification as a rational process within the context of traditional Vodoun society, Davis demystifies one of the most exploited of folk beliefs, one that has been used to denigrate an entire people and their religion.

This book presents the first debate between the contemporary movement Radical Orthodoxy and Eastern Orthodox theologians. Leading international scholars offer new insights and reflections on a wide range of contemporary issues from a specifically theological and philosophical perspective. The ancient notion of divine Wisdom (Sophia) serves as a common point of reference in this encounter. Both Radical and Eastern Orthodoxy agree that the transfiguration of the world through the Word is at the very centre of the Christian faith. The book explores how this process of transformation can be envisaged with regard to epistemological, ontological, aesthetical, ecclesiological and political questions. Contributors to this volume include Rowan Williams, John Milbank, Antoine Arjakovsky, Michael Northcott, Nicholas Loudovikos, Andrew Louth and Catherine Pickstock.

The book was written in response to my thoughts, beliefs and understanding in the period from May 2016 to September 2017. It shows the process I was dealing with what came to me in my reality. It refers to all that happened to me during that period, allowing me to pass through the narrowest outlines of my thoughts. It shows all that happened to me in my psyche at that time and can be seen as one of the ways to deal with challenging thoughts that appear in man as a result of his relationship with other people. It is an indicator of what is possible if you are focused on the present time and if you are focused on what lies ahead of you. It can serve as an indicator of what is possible in your spiritual development if you focus on the process you are going through. It is a guide mark to the overall growth of consciousness that is possible if you focus on what is ahead of you.

The Light of the Gods

The Light of the Gods

The belief that darkness preceded childbirth , in contrast to the light of the world of mortals , appears to have been widespread considering the abundance of literary references to childbirth as a passage from darkness to light .

"The Light of the Gods shows that the involvement of light in Greek cult was a complex phenomenon which penetrated a great variety of ritual practices and religious beliefs surrounding the worship of gods in Archaic and Classical Greece. Extensively illustrated with photographs and line drawings, the book will be of interest to archaeologists at all levels, and also to students of Greek cultural history and religion."--BOOK JACKET.
