An extensive look at the cartography and folklore of the afterlife worlds as seen by our ancestors • Examines how ancient European cultures viewed the beyond, including the Blessed Isles of early Greek and Celtic faith, the Hebrew Sheol, Hades from Homer’s Odyssey, Hel and Valhalla of the Norse, and the Aralu of Babylon • Shows how medieval accounts of journeys into the Other World represent the first recorded near-death experiences • Connects medieval afterlife beliefs and NDE narratives with shamanism, looking in particular at psychopomps, power animals, the double, the fetch, and what people bring back from their journeys to the spirit realms Charting the evolution of afterlife beliefs in both pagan and medieval Christian times, Claude Lecouteux offers an extensive look at the cartography and folklore of the afterlife worlds as seen by our ancestors. Exploring the locations and topographies of the various forms taken by Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, he examines how ancient European cultures viewed the beyond, including the Blessed Isles of early Greek and Celtic faith, the Hebrew Sheol, the pale world of Hades from Homer’s Odyssey, Hel and Valhalla of the Norse, and the Aralu of Babylon, the land where nothing can be seen. The author also explores beliefs in Other Worlds, lands different from our own that are not the afterlife but places where time flows differently and which are inhabited by fantastic or supernatural beings such as fairies or dwarfs. Sharing medieval tales of journeys into the beyond, Lecouteux shows how these accounts represent the first recorded near-death experiences (NDEs) and examines how they compare with modern NDE narratives as well as the work of NDE researchers like Raymond Moody. In addition, he also explores tales of out-of-body experiences, dream journeys, and travels made by a double or fetch and connects these narratives with shamanism, looking in particular at psychopomps, power animals, and what people bring back from their journeys to the spirit realms. Analyzing the afterlife beliefs of the Middle Ages as a whole, Lecouteux concludes with a collection of medieval afterlife-related traditions, such as placing polished stones in the coffin so the departed soul can find its way back to friends and family at those times of the year when the veil between the worlds grows thin.

Picturing Extraterrestrials

In this witty, erudite, and thoroughly researched book, art historian John Moffitt discusses the popular iconography depicting alleged extraterrestrial (ET) visitors and the widespread appeal of this New Age craze as a mass cultural phenomenon. A thorough skeptic, Moffitt is interested in kitschy ET portraiture, not as evidence of aliens among us, but for what this imagery reveals about contemporary culture. By brilliantly placing the present cultural moment in historical context, he demonstrates how typical portrayals of aliens reflect long-running (even ancient) cultural motifs.Whether we realize it or not, among ET's precursors are the ecstatic maenads of ancient Greek art, early depictions of Christ in Byzantine icons, the religious visions shown in 15th-century Spanish paintings, and the popular images of witches and incubi from the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, in our postmodern space age, these timeless figures of imagination and art have taken on the otherworldly trappings of alien creatures. By the same token, centuries-old beliefs, whether in nature gods and goddesses, demons, witches, Satan, or saints, have evolved into the current New Age mythology that often surrounds the stories and pictures connected with aliens. Fueled by a huge entertainment industry, mass media, and the relentless profit drive of capitalism, alien imagery has become ubiquitous, and in the process the line between fantasy and reality ever harder to discern.This sweeping and above all entertaining perusal of popular culture presents a sophisticated yet very accessible and often funny dissection of our current obsession with the possibility that we are not alone.John F. Moffitt (Las Cruces, NM) is professor emeritus of art history at New Mexico State University. He is the author of many books on art history including Art Forgery: The Case of the Lady of Elche.

Le D fi magique Satanisme sorcellerie

La magie avait tendance à être considérée jusqu'à ces dernières années comme une entreprise individuelle et un phénomène résiduel sans avenir. Or, ce que l'on constate aujourd'hui, c'est non seulement un regain d'intérêt pour l'occultisme, le satanisme et la sorcellerie, mais aussi la formation de mouvement magiques organisés à l'échelle nationale et internationale, qui constituent un défi pour nos sociétés modernes, rationalistes et scientifiques. Au-delà du sensationnalisme et des polémiques, des universitaires et des acteurs dans le domaine religieux apportent dans ce volume des éclaircissements et des précisions sur plusieurs arguments controversés : le débat sur le satanisme criminel aux Etats-Unis et ailleurs ; le regain d'intérêt pour l'exorcisme constaté dans plusieurs Eglises chrétiennes ; la permanence de la sorcellerie populaire et les différences avec la néo-sorcellerie bourgeoise, dite " wica " ; les réactions des Eglises, de la presse, des tribunaux au retour de l'occulte ; les influences multiples du satanisme sur la littérature et sur l'art ; les rapprochements qui peuvent être établis dans l'interprétation du mal et dans la vision du diable entre certaines traditions religieuses (judéo-chrétienne, indienne, japonaise), ou entre les traditions religieuses et la psychanalyse ou la psychiatrie.
