Segundo volumen de la trilogia sobre las religiones, una de las obras magnas de Mircea Eliade y que se ha convertido en uno de los clasicos del siglo XX. La erudicion, la fuerza intelectual y la capacidad para la sintesis de su autor dan como resultado una vision de las creencias religiosas que, segun su propia formula, arroja luz sobre la unidad fundamental de los fenomenos religiosos y la inabarcable variedad de sus expresiones. Este segundo tomo esta en gran parte dedicado a las religiones de la antigua China, al budismo y al nacimiento del cristianismo, si bien abarca otros cultos como el brahmanismo y el hinduismo, la religion romana, los celtas y los tracios, Orfeo y Pitagoras, la sintesis hinduista, el judaismo, el paganismo, el sincretismo y la epoca helenistica.
