Dictionnaire des dieux, des saints et des hommes by Pierre Chavot

By Pierre Chavot

Ce dictionnaire s'intéresse aussi bien aux dieux, aux grands acteurs des religions (saints, prophètes, fondateurs de courants religieux...) qu'aux autres majeurs et aux livres sacrés. Chaque entrée détaille le parcours biographique d'un personnage, son rôle dans l'Histoire, les rites qui lui sont associés et ses principaux écrits. Il aborde ainsi les religions et mythologies du monde, de l' Antiquité (Egypte, Grèce, Rome, Perse, Mésopotamie....) à nos jours, qu'elles soient originaires d'Europe (Celtes, Nordiques, Basques...), d'Asie (bouddhisme, shintoïsme, traditions chinoises et indiennes...), d' Amérique (Incas, Aztèques), d'Afrique ou d'Océanie (Maoris...). Sans oublier, bien sûr, les trois religions monothéistes - judaïsme, christianisme, islam - et leurs différentes familles.
