(6),vii-xxiv,[1]-517,(3). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Volume 15 in the World Spirituality: An Encyclopedia History of the Religious Quest series. General Editor: Ewert Cousins. "This volume strives to do justice to [...] two somewhat contradictory aspects of classical Mediterranean spirituality [on the one hand, it is an example of archaic spirituality, and onthe other it bears an intricate relationship to our own European Christian, anti-Christian, and post-Christian spiritualities]: Its deeply archaic aspect going back to Neolithic times or further, and its profoundly reflective aspect -- 'reflective', not merely in the sense of 'philosophical', but in the sense that archaic Greek spirituality is inconceivable withoutcontinual reference to the poets." -from the dustjacket.
