"Classical Mediterranean spirituality occupies a place of peculiar significance in the history of world spirituality. On the one hand it is an example of archaic spirituality, and on the other it bears an intricate relationship to our own European Christian, anti-Christian, and post-Christian spiritualities. It is the combination of this archaic base with often intensely sophisticated thinking and feeling that gives Hellenic and hellenized spirituality and culture its peculiar and enduring fascination. This volume seeks to do justice to these two somewhat contradictory aspects..." - publisher. (6928)
