Easter: The Legends and the Facts

Paperback
In this classic book, Eleanor C. Merry applies her remarkably wide-ranging knowledge of world religion and mythology to the Easter story. A perfect companion to her book The Ascent of Man, Easter focuses on three particular legends: The Holy Grail and Perceval, An Old Irish Legend, and The Legend of Faust. With the Sun, the Moon and Nature forming a continuous background to her ideas, Merry draws out the common themes which lead ultimately to the Christian Easter story.
