THE ROAD TO ELEUSIS Unveiling the Secret of the Mysteries. Twentieth A (Used)
by Wasson, R. Gordon, Albert
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 3903, 3903
148pp, plates in color & black & white, new copies. When this book was first published in 1978 by Harcourt Brace & Jovanovich, it created a small firestorm of controversy. The questions raised here go to the very heart of religion-were psychoactive plants the inspiration for the origin of religion and later of mysticism? Was Soma, the mysterious plant frequently mentioned in the sacred books of India really the poisonous, powerful hallucinogen Amanita Muscaria? Was an ergot brew offered to participants at the Eleusinian Mystery Rites? These are provocative questions that continue to grip some of the best minds, and regrettably some of the most superficial. If you were to read one book on the subject, this is the central document. The authors treat the subject with the reverence and sophistication it deserves. This new edition is printed at the Stamperia Valdonega in Italy, one of the last great private presses and the original printer of the first edition, quality book arts. Limited edition. Highly recommended. Last few new copies in stock at the publ's price.
