Format: Hardcover
The Pagan Dream Of The Renaissance by academician and Western esoteric traditions expert Joscelyn Godwin is an informed and informative exploration of how pagan deities captivated the Renaissance European imagination during the Renaissance, to such an extent that symbols of pagan doctrine would sometimes exist side-by-side with official symbols and doctrines of the Christian Church. Enhanced with numerous black-and-white photographs of Renaissance era art and stonework that celebrated pagan deities pepper this scholarly and insightful text, The Pagan Dream Of The Renaissance is a highly recommended addition to academic Western History and Renaissance History reference collections and reading lists.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interesting, but does not touch literature, only the visual arts. Even so it cannot compare with the classic Sezenec on the same subject.
