231. Akhetaten - Horizon of the Aten [SIS Internet Digest $]
... west, with the river along one side and the natural desert cliff forming a boundary in other directions. It was deliberately chosen by Akhenaten as a virgin site and can be seen as a deliberate move away from any existing power-base. It also would have appealed on religious grounds as a break in the cliff wall to the east allows the rising sun to shine through the gap in a physical manifestation of one of the central images of Atenist religion. Boundary stelae were set up in Akhenaten's year 4, decorated with typical Amarna artwork ... 15 of these have so far been found. The city was then constructed in haste, with a definite time frame in mind. Akhenaten's intention was that as Egypt's new capital it would endure for many years, but in actuality it was occupied through Smenkhkare's brief reign until (probably) the second year of Tutankhamun. After this it was largely abandoned and the population dwindled rapidly. A workmen's camp and possibly military garrison lasted for a short time after. Thus its life was brief, though profoundly important. During the 19th dynasty ...

232. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... MULLEN, compares apocalyptic writings from the Old and New World. These writings suggest that society is restructured after a catastrophe. The survivors seek stability through worship of what they think is an appropriate deity and through ritual activities. When another apocalypse is imminent, a new religion emerges or old religions are altered in an attempt to avert the impending disaster. Mullen shows how a catastrophe which occurred in the distant past becomes, because of religion, an apocalypse which will occur in the future. "Where Mullen has discussed catastrophe as it ... expressed through religion, the next paper, by IRVING WOLFE, proposes that catastrophic experiences are the inspiration for great works of narrative art. In particular, Wolfe discusses Velikovskian overtones in SHAKESPEARE'S Midsummer Night's Dream and Antony and Cleopatra. Through narrative art, catastrophes may be discussed without the society (composed of individuals) having to experience the traumas associated with the enduring, but repressed, memories of the actual events. As 'adult fairy tales', such narratives provide a therapeutic effect, satisfying the subconscious needs of the individual to be ...

... manuscripts with their precious new information on Inca religion and culture should have engendered a wholesale reassessment of the traditional views on these questions. While a reassessment of sorts did take place, it did not result in any significant changes in the accepted views on the political and religious life of Tawantinsuyu. A thorough re-evaluation is overdue. In particular, the notion that a solar cult was supreme in Tawantinsuyu is no longer tenable. Until the publication of Juan Pachacuti's manuscript a century ago we lacked the evidence that could decisively counter the unanimous opinion ...

The traditional view of Inca religion was built chiefly on the writings of Garcilaso de la Vega, Bartolome de las Casas, and Pedro Cieza de Leon. In the Commentarios Reales of the hispanicized Inca nobleman, Garcilaso de la Vega, the cult of the Sun is portrayed as supreme. The chief temple in Cuzco, the Coricancha, is said to have ...

236. Venus in Ancient Myth and Language [Aeon Journal $]
... , proposed that the planet Venus had recently assumed a comet-like orbit, Talbott and I attempted to reconstruct the history of this most unusual "comet." (2) We found a consistent connection of a comet-like Venus with Saturn, reflected in the earliest astronomical and religious texts alike, a connection which we interpreted as having developed at the time when Saturn reigned supreme in the skies as the central sun. Indeed, we were able to point to a time when Venus orbited the massive Saturn, its comet-like tail presenting the appearance ... authenticity and overall significance of the myth in question would be greatly enhanced. The Lost Mythology of Latin Venus If the comparative approach to mythology has merit, the question is how to evaluate the mythology of the Latin goddess Venus, since it is usually agreed that Latin religion is singularly devoid of its own mythology (apart from the borrowed Greek mythology, that is). Georges Dumezil, one of the leading scholars of the new school of comparative mythology, has addressed this problem in a series of books on Latin religion. Dumezil ...

237. When Venus Was A Comet [Kronos $]
... the modern boundaries of Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador, the great civilizations of Central America reached heights unparalleled in the rest of the New World. Like their Egyptian counterparts, the Mesoamericans were renowned for their great stone pyramids and religious monuments. Amidst the hieroglyphs and iconography associated with these structures are religious traditions which would appear to be of extreme antiquity. That many of these religious traditions were astronomically oriented seems to be the consensus among scholars. David Kelley, for example, has observed: ... pp. 45 ff.- LMG In an attempt to understand the beliefs and legends surrounding these celestial visitors, the present authors began an extensive investigation into the role of comets in ancient tradition. It was discovered that comets played a significant role in ancient mythology and religion, one which would appear to be totally out of proportion with respect to their celestial prominence.(1) It eventually became apparent that most, if not all, of the strange beliefs associated with comets could be traced to a prototypical body which dominated the ...

... facing the sun-- which is drawn as a disc with a dot in its center." (11) Such scenes, coupled with the obvious prominence of the sun in ancient religion, have led scholars to assume that the solar images served some sort of religious purpose for the Stone Age artists and their communities. (12) The anomalies presented by these images have not escaped the attention of scholars. Aside from the fact that each of them is routinely identified with the sun, the various "sun-images" would appear ... Ev Cochrane If you have had your attention directed to the novelties of thought in your own lifetime, you will have observed that almost all really new ideas have a certain aspect of foolishness when they are first presented.-- A. Whitehead In science, unlike religion, the great revelations lie in the future; the coming generations are the authorities; and the pupil is greater than the master, if he has the gift to see things anew. All fruitful ideas have been conceived in the minds of non-conformists, for whom ...

... term for magic in the Egyptian Pyramid Texts was heka, signifying "to utter charms, or spells, or incantations," yet the same word is found elsewhere with the meaning of band or crown (hekau). (10) And in these earliest of religious texts, according to Mercer, the typical means of working magic was through the agency of tying knots. (11) That the same conceptions were current in early Latin religious practices is deducible from the Latin language. The word fascino, for example, signifying ... Collision). Indeed a central episode in the career of the Venus-comet concerns the role which that body played in the production of a giant band which came to envelop the ancient sun-god. The issue facing us here is how our reconstruction squares with previous studies on the religion of the Latin goddess. In one sense, of course, it is entirely incompatible with modern scholarship on the matter, based as it is upon an understanding of the goddess as a personification of the planet Venus. No respectable classical scholar, to the best ...

240. Was the Spiral a Symbol or an Art-Motif? [Migration of Symbols (Book)] [Books]
... ", who consider the spiral to be essentially a symbol, have connected it with whorled shells, with the octopus, which in repose curves its tentacles in spiral form and with the ram's horns of various outstanding deities. In doing so, they have emphasized the religious or magico-religious associations of the objects in question. Their list, however, can be greatly added to. Certain reptiles, plants and animals figure in the ancient mythological collections.
