Hekate in Ancient Greek Religion (Used)
by Von Rudloff, Robert
Book ID: 9780969606680, 0969606680
Horned Owl Publishing
176 pages, 6" x 9", soft cover, perfect bound with illustrations, maps, translations, indices, notes, bibliography
Hekate is perhaps the most infamous deity of the classical Greek and Roman world, and yet she is one of the most poorly documented and studied. For over a century, scholars have summarised her as a fearful goddess of malevolent magical practices and ghosts, for this is what many works of classical and later literature seem to present. However, evidence exists throughout antiquity which contradicts this picture by revealing beneficial functions and public acceptance of her worship. This discrepancy has rarely been acknowledged, let alone addressed. The origins and early forms of Hekate's worship in particular have been obscured by the over-reliance on simplistic interpretations of the later literary evidence.
Hekate in Ancient Greek Religion is a thorough study, the first ever which focuses exclusively upon all the evidence concerning the early worship of Hekate in the Greek world, from circa 800 to 400 B.C.E. It is based upon the author's M.A. thesis on the same subject. The results are a refreshingly new picture of Hekate and her worship.

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.
Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
