9780500051344: The Quest For The Shaman: Shape-shifters, Sorcerers And Spirit-Healers In Ancient Europe

Here is an exciting, innovative study of ancient European religious practice and practitioners. The Aldhouse-Greens entertaining and informative book represents a search, a voyage of discovery in which evidence is sought that there were individuals living in Europe from the Stone Age to the early post-Roman period who believed they were able to liaise with the spirit-world through the medium of trance and who perceived themselves to be part-human and part-animal.The authors support their argument with diverse and rich evidence, including the 30,000-year-old lion-human ivory figurines found in south-western Germany, which may represent monsters seen by shamans in altered states of consciousness; the newly discovered and spectacular Nebra sky-disc, which depicts the sun, moon and the Pleiades, indicating that Bronze Age shamans were using highly sophisticated objects to explore the heavens; and, the Doctors Grave from southeast England, which suggests that a Late Iron Age chieftain, who may have been a shaman, was sent to the Otherworld equipped with hallucinogens, medical kit and divining tools.

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Long before there were organized religions there were shamans, and archaeological remains show that shamanism was endemic among ancient Europeans. The Aldhouse-Greens' entertaining and informative exploration seeks those individuals living in Europe from the Stone Age to the early post-Roman period who perceived themselves to be part-human and part-animal and believed they were able to liaise with the spirit-world through the medium of trance. The authors draw on recent archaeological research to support their conclusions with rich evidence, including the 30,000-year-old lion-human ivory figurines found in southwestern Germany that may represent monsters seen by shamans in altered states of consciousness; the spectacular Nebra sky-disc, also from Germany, which depicts the sun, moon, and the Pleiades, indicating that Bronze Age shamans were using highly sophisticated objects to explore the heavens; and the 'Doctor's Grave' from southeast England, which suggests that a Late Iron Age chieftain was sent to the Otherworld equipped with hallucinogenic drugs, medical kit, and divining tools. Miranda Aldhouse-Green's interests as Professor of Archaeology at the University of Wales lie in the ritual behavior and practices of later prehistory, the Classical world, and the early mythic literature of Ireland and Wales; Stephen Aldhouse-Green's expertise, as Professor of Human Origins at the same university, lies in much earlier prehistory. Here their specialties come together to produce an exciting, innovative study of ancient European religious practice and practitioners. A tour of what is currently most celebrated, interesting and controversial in the evidence for ancient European religion and spirituality. The illustrations are profuse, and gorgeous, and anybody who wants an introduction to the subject that is bang up to date should probably start here. HISTORY TODAY. Codice libro della libreria 1424
