Details

The Underworld in Myth, Magic and Mystery reveals that ceremonies were conducted in many ancient and secret underground spaces throughout the world from the beginning of human history. The underworld has been associated with myths, magic and mysteries including death. Death has always been an enigma to humanity. Rituals have been developed in each culture to teach humanity about life, death and the afterlife.

The Mysteries and their teachings were conveyed to candidates in underground temples, caverns, crypts, tombs and caves where drama and music accompanied ceremonies. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery into prehistory and history tracing the Mysteries used to veil hidden knowledge about living and dying, relating it to the science of the resent day.

“In this well written sourcebook, the authors take the reader on a remarkable journey through an amazing range of cultures, both ancient and modern, to document how the underworld shaped the conscious and unconscious viewpoint of humankind. It is astonishing how many cultures use the underworld as a major recurring symbol in trying to make sense of life, death and the afterlife as well as grapple with the question of man’s place in the universe.

The Underworld in Myth, Magic and Mystery, provides a sense of order to the tremendous diversity of mankind’s beliefs. A wealth of notes, illustrations, photographs and an extensive glossary [plus appendix and index] with suggested readings help bring a complex topic into manageable light. As such it represents an important sourcebook for anyone interested in learning more about the mysteries of humankind, the journey of the soul and the meaning of life”
