Pagan mysteries in the Renaissance by Edgar Wind( Book )

174 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 2,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Themes of pagan mysticism and Neoplatonic philosophy are often to be found in the great Renaissance paintings, and in the poetry and other art of the period as well. The author's exploration of these themes was acclaimed when it first appeared, for its impeccable scholarship and its subtle explanation of the imagery of masterpieces by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian and others. This edition includes an extensive revision of the text and several new appendices and plates to illustrate the author's argument
Art and anarchy by Edgar Wind( Book )

112 editions published between 1963 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 1,569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Will works of the imagination ever regain the power they once had to challenge and mould society and the individual? This was the question posed by Edgar Wind's influential Reith Lectures delivered in 1960 and later expanded into his book Art and Anarchy. The book examines the various forces that have fashioned the modern view of the art, from mechanization and fear of intellect to connoisseurship and--perhaps the fundamental weakness of our age--the dispassionate acceptance of art. In the course of his discussion, Wind surveyed a wide range of topics in the history of painting, literature, music, and the plastic arts from the Renaissance to modern times

The illustrated golden bough by James George Frazer( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Golden Bough describes our ancestors' primitive methods of worship, sex practices, strange rituals and festivals. Disproving the popular thought that primitive life was simple, this monumental survey shows that savage man was enmeshed in a tangle of magic, taboos, and superstitions. Revealed here is the evolution of man from savagery to civilization, from the modification of his weird and often bloodthirsty customs to the entry of lasting moral, ethical, and spiritual values
