Stars, myths and rituals in Etruscan Rome by Leonardo Magini( )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a detailed and fascinating picture of the astonishing astronomical knowledge on which the Roman calendar, traditionally attributed to the king Numa Pompilius (reign 715-673 BC), was based. This knowledge, of Mesopotamian origins, related mainly to the planetary movements and to the occurrence of eclipses in the solar system. The author explains the Numan year and cycle and illustrates clearly how astronomical phenomena exerted a powerful influence over both public and private life. A series of concise chapters examines the dates of the Roman festivals, describes the related rites and myths, and places the festivals in relation to the planetary movements and astronomical events. Special reference is made to the movements of the moon and Venus, their relation to the language of myth, and the particular significance that Venus was considered to have for female fertility. The book clearly demonstrates the depth of astronomical knowledge reflected in the Roman religious calendar and the designated festive days. It will appeal both to learned connoisseurs and to amateurs with a particular interest in the subject

Ulisse e il viaggio dell'anima : le radici sciamaniche dei racconti di Omero by Leonardo Magini( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in Italian and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A rereading of Homer's Odyssey in the light of shamanism. This study traces the steps of Odysseus' voyage, systematically comparing it with the myths, beliefs, and ideas of the shamanic world. When viewed in this way, the first part of the Odyssey acquires a new meaning: Odysseus is a shaman, and his voyage is that of the soul to the beyond, recounted by the hero after his return to this side. The second part of the poem is reinterpreted as well: it tells of the "rebirth" of the shaman who has returned from the beyond, a rebirth that goes through stages marked by recognitions--of Telemachus, Argo, Eurycleia, etc. This book shows how the story of the Odyssey has its roots in an older, shamanic world
