Picus who is also Zeus PDF book by Harris, J. Rendel

The present volume is a continuation of the one which was published in 1913 under the title of Boanerges, much in the same way as Boanerges was the expansion and extension of the previous volumes dealing with the Dioscuri in Christian Legend, and the Cult of the Heavenly Twins, which are cited in the following pages under the abbre^dated forms,

Dioscuri and Cult respectively. It is assumed (for how could one continue the argument on any other hypothesis ? ) that the main positions in the previous volume are sound, and that they furnish a secure foundation upon which the students of Man and of Man's Religions may build further: this does not mean that there are no corrections necessary and no re-statements desirable, but that, on the whole, we have the liberty to proceed: for the investigation, as far as it has gone, has thrown too much light into odd corners of human history to be altogether negligible.

The student of classical archaeology cannot afford to ignore it, for it explains many hitherto unintelligible features in Greek and Roman Mythology, and shows us in what direction to look for the origin of the Olympian worship. The student of history cannot pass by discoveries which, to a large extent, enable us to re-write the story of the foundation of Rome and other great cities of the past. Folk-lore, folk-medicine, and the like, begin to be translated out of a thousand languages into a single speech, expressing the Unity of Civilisation and the Interrelation of Religions.
