About this product
- DescriptionIn what way can human beings attain that Harmony whereby they become mediators between Heaven and Earth? In the mysterious language of symbols we can rediscover the sense of vocation that reflects Divine Activity. For God is, in reality, the sole Artisan. All the traditional crafts strive to imitate within their limitations the work of God, Who unceasingly creates and maintains the world. And in the end it is this that constitutes the sole foundation of the dignity of work. That is why this book seeks to bring us to an interior kwledge of God as Divine Artisan. Chapters include: The Divine Scribe Christ the Physician The Warrior God The Divine Potter God the Weaver God the Architect and Mason The Son of the Carpenter Pastor et Nauta God the Fisherman and God the Hunter The Celestial Gardener The Master of the Harvest The Master of the Vineyard The Spirituality of Work and the Body Social. Through his research into hidden or lost meanings, Jean Hani has revealed and restored to our attention the most initiatic dimensions of the Christian religion. Jean Borella, author of The Secret of the Christian Way, and The Crisis of Religious Symbolism (forthcoming from Angelico Press) Jean Hani (1917 2012), former professor emeritus at the University of Amiens, was the founder of the Centre de Recherche sur l Antiquite Classique and a frequent contributor to the journal Connaissance des Religions. After writing his PhD thesis on the influence of Egyptian thought upon Plutarch, he produced antated translations of the latter s writings for the well-kwn Collection Bude. Later he became kwn for his mastery of traditional hermeneutics and exegesis, and his broad kwledge in the field of comparative religion. Hani s writing is sensitive to the predicament of those moderns who seek a firm foundation in traditional Christian values, while striving also to integrate into that foundation whatever of value can be salvaged from the contemporary world. His findings were presented in four important works w available from Angelico Press in translation: the present volume, along with The Symbolism of the Christian Temple, The Divine Liturgy (Insights into its Mystery), and The Black Virgin (A Marian Mystery).
