Reconstructing Eliade is a concept-by-concept research of the concept of Mircea Eliade and a second look of his research of faith. It illustrates how a radical familiarity with Eliade's paintings can produce an interpretation of his idea as systematic, coherent, and entirely rational. half One offers an research of the phrases of Eliade's knowing of religion--hierophany, the sacred and the dialectic of the sacred and profane, homo religiosus, myths and symbols--and therefore of the that means of faith implied all through his paintings.
