The definitive work on the labyrinth throughout history. The author traces developments in the architectural, astrological, mythological and socio-political significance of this fascinating cultural phenomenon, from the Bronze Age to the present day. 360 Pages with illustrations! This is a very large book, measuring approximately 12"x10"x1.5" and weighing just over 5 pounds.

It is in excellent pre-owned condition. It does show a little wear on the cover.

I encourage buyers to ask questions that I may have overlooked before purchasing. Please look at the photos, as this is the best description. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Labyrinths and mazes are found all over the world, and have been a source of intrigue and wonder throughout history. This richly illustrated and carefully documented standard work explores the manifold aspects of labyrinths - from their architectural, astrological, and mythological significance, to their iconographical, mathematical, and artistic fascination, while also examining their socio-historical context.

From the Publisher
"Through the Labyrinth" is a groundbreaking and exhaustive interdisciplinary study of a fascinating cultural phenomenon. The author introduces the reader to such different labyrinth forms as rock engravings on Trojan castles, medieval manuscipts, church labyrinths, and Baroque garden mazes. He traces the origins, developments, and changing meanings of this mystic form from the Bronze Age to the present day. The labyrinth's dominant position in Western civilization is supplemented by explorations in other cultures around the globe, including those of Egypt, India, and North America. By taking a close look through the centuries at different cultures and across the continents, the cultural and historical significance of the maze takes on a new light. Supplemented by recent findings by prominent labyrinth scholars from the U.S. and Europe, this visually gripping scientific study will captivate both the layman and the expert.
