The God of the Witches


      The God of the Witches
This book is intended for the general reader as well as for the student of anthropology In this volume I have followed one line only of anthropological enquiry, the survival of an indigenous European cult and the interaction between it and the exotic religion which finally overwhelmed it I have traced the worship of the Horned God onwards through the centuries from the Paleolithic prototypes, and I have shown that the survival of the cult was due to the survival of the races who adored that god, for this belief could not have held its own against the invasions of other peoples and religions unless a stratum of the population were strong enough to keep it aliveDr Margaret Alice Murray Free Download [ The God of the Witches ] author [ Margaret Alice Murray ] For Kindle ePUB or eBook – cricketworldcuplivestreaming.com

    Let s be perfectly honest Margaret Murray is batshit insane In the days before wikipedia, Ms Murray would be the reason why we d argue that everyone was indeed not an authority on everything Lightly trained as an Egyptologist Edward Said would have a field day with that , Murray launches into a rambling, crazy treatise on a magical Horned God and pre Christian pagan European universal maternalist religion that was marginalized as witchcraft in the darkest parts of the medieval period Let s be perfectly honest Margaret Murray is batshit insane In the days before wikipedia, Ms Murray would be the reason why we d argue that everyone was indeed not an authority on everything Lightly trained as an Egyptologist Edward Said would have a field day with that , Murray launches into a rambling, crazy treatise on a magical Horne...

    Aunque historiadores y antrop logos anglosajones han desacreditado la obra de Murray, haciendo nfasis en sus inconsistencias y falta de rigor acad mico y uno se pregunta si eso lo saben los editores del FCE que deciden seguir publicando la traducci n y decidieron incluirla en la colecci n de 70 aniversario de la editorial , El dios de los brujos no deja de ser un libro sumamente legible y una piedra fundacional en el retorno a la luz p blica de las religiones precristianas europeas Aunque historiadores y antrop logos anglosajones han desacreditado la obra de Murray, haciendo nfasis en sus inconsistencias y falta de rigor acad mico y uno se pregunta si eso lo saben los editores del FCE que deciden seguir publicando la traducci n y decidieron incluirla en la colecci n de 70 aniversario de la editorial , El dios de los brujos no deja de ser un libro sumamente legible y una piedra fundacional en el retorno a la luz p blica de las religiones precristianas europeas Curiosamente, este renacimiento religioso tiene como una de sus bases un libro que pretende, en buena medida, explicar de manera racional la creencia en lo que los te logos e inquisidores cristianos llamaron brujer a y cultos al diablo Aunque sus cr ticos la acusaron de manipular sus fuentes, me parece que Murray tuvo un acierto imp...

    The early and ending sections were a little tough for me to connect with, in part because so much seemed based on conjecture, but the middle bits, where she discusses the ways witches have historically been viewed and treated in western Europ...

    Hard to rate this one, because I found it highly enjoyable to read both inspired and inspiring, containing the kind of esoteric wisdoms that can alter the course of your life and yet, at the same time, I appreciate that it s somewhat off the mark historically So, for that reason, I ve rated it three, although my heart would insist on giving it four It s worth four stars for the simple reason that Margaret Murray was the first British author to debunk the popular caricature of the witch as Hard to rate this one, because I found it highly enjoyable to read both inspired and inspiring, containing the kind of esoteric wisdoms that can alter the course of your life and yet, at the same time, I...

    Staying at Linda s paternal grandmother s trailer near Tampa during August was physically unpleasant owing to heat and humidity The only relief was staying inside her small home, going to a nearby pool or walking to the mall It was at that blessedly airconditioned mall that I purchased and read this book.Margaret Murray was first and foremost an Egyptologist Her interest in the history of witchcraft or, as she might say, of traditional European religions was a hobby, a hobby towards whi...
