Riassunto: This encyclopedia presents 120 full-page color photographs of art works and artifacts of the sacred traditions of the world, from ancient times to the present. The images are grouped into archetypal themes such as Cosmos and Creation, Sacred Animals, Goddesses, Gods, The Divine Child, Heroes and Heroines, Revelation, and Transformation. Accompanying pictures are brief essays on historical and cultural context, cross-cultural symbolism, and the psychological meaning of the archetypes, as well as bibliographies, glossaries, and a comprehensive descriptive index. The source of the images is the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS), a unique collection of more than 13,000 pictures and scholarly materials prepared by analytical psychologists, art historians, and scholars of religion. The Archive is housed at three locations: the C. G. Jung Foundation for Analytical Psychology in New York and the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles and San Francisco.
L'autore: Beverly Moon, Ph.D., is a historian of religions trained at the University of Chicago and Columbia University. She was formerly executive director of Parabola: The Magazine for Myth and Tradition and associate project editor of The Encyclopedia of Religion under the general editorship of Mircea Eliade.
