Religious Ideas...

This month I am attending a very interesting course on Religious Ideas.

It covers religious beliefs from Pre-Classical Cultures to the XXth century cults. And we are using most of famous Fernando Pessoa quotes...an esoteric and a famous writer.

Of course my interest is mainly focused in ancient beliefs such as the Christian Gnostics, Kabbalah, and Islamic Sufis.

The bibliography is wide, but most of the works are available online or at the bookstores, either as originals or translations. I do prefer originals...but in the case of Kabbalah and islam, although I have some knowledge of Hebrew and Arabic, it is not enough to read whole books...

I am posting here some examples cited by Prof. Jose Manuel Anes, the course lecturer, as you might be interested to learn more...those of you in contact via Facebook have more inputs as well.

With the Lisboa Book Fair coming soon this month it is a treat to make a list of books-to-buy-on-sale...Love it!
