|About the Book|
The Pan Principle is the story of a womans travels in search of a variety of sites sacret to god Pan in Greece. Pan, half-goat, half-man, is the only god who is said by the ancients to have died. The mystery of his supposed death is discussed as the various shrines and areas connected to him are examined. His earliest territory was the little-visited province of Arcadia. From there his workship and reputation spread with Greek and Roman culture. Pans appeal has always been an enduring one, both to his early worshippers and later writers who have identified him with a variety of figures, including both Christ and the Deveil. In every era, poets have found different meanings in the stories of life and death. A powerful tribute to a potent symbol, this is an unmissable exploration, evocation and discussion of the god Pan.
