A highly original and scholarly work on spirituality by noted historian Mircea Eliade

 

In The Sacred and the Profane, Mircea Eliade observes that while contemporary people believe their world is entirely profane, or secular, they still at times find themselves connected unconsciously to the memory of something sacred. It's this premise that both drives Eliade's exhaustive exploration of the sacred—as it has manifested in space, time, nature and the cosmos, and life itself—and buttresses his expansive view of the human experience.

From the Back Cover:

In a book of great originality and scholarship, a noted historian of religion traces manifestations of the sacred from primitive to modern times, in terms of space, time, nature and the cosmos, and life itself. The Sacred and the Profane serves as an excellent introduction to the history of religion, but its perspective also encompasses philosophical anthropology, phenomenology, and psychology. It will be of concern to anyone seeking to discover the potential dimensions of human existence.

About the Author:

Mircea Eliade was chairman of the department of the history of religions at the University of Chicago. Among his many books are The Myth of the Eternal Reunion, Patterns in Comparative Religion, Birth and Rebirth, and Yoga: Immorality and Freedom.
