Reconstructing Eliade is a concept-by-concept research of the idea of Mircea Eliade and a re-assessment of his research of faith. It illustrates how a radical familiarity with Eliade's paintings can produce an interpretation of his inspiration as systematic, coherent, and completely rational. half One presents an research of the phrases of Eliade's figuring out of religion--hierophany, the sacred and the dialectic of the sacred and profane, homo religiosus, myths and symbols--and hence of the that means of faith implied all through his paintings.
