Classical Religions and Myths of the Mediterranean Basin

Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality Series

The Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality Series
By Dr. Jon David Solomon, Prof. Walter Harrelson, Mike Hassell & Pat Childs
Narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley / 2 hours 55 minutes

The early myths of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Asia Minor, Canaan, Greece, and Rome have greatly and continuously influenced all of Western culture and civilization. Myths rely on imagination and intuition; they express fervently held convictions about the ultimate nature of things, exploring the mysteries of life and death, passion and suffering. Today, theological interest is resurging in goddess worship, and other early nature-based religions are receiving a renewed attention. This presentation also discusses how the literature and culture of these religions have influenced Hebrew and Christian scriptures. The Religion, Scriptures, and Spirituality Series describes the beliefs, religious practices, and the spiritual and moral commitments of the world's great religious traditions. It also describes a religion's way of understanding scripture, identifies its outstanding thinkers, and discusses its attitude and relationship to society.
