Mystery Cults and the Pre-Christian Notion of God
[ send me this paper ]
8 pages in length. An insightful look at Mystery Cults-- groups that pre-date Christianity and yet who believed in the 'mysteriousness' of God -- found later on in sections of The Bible (it is noted that God speaks extensively early on in Genesis and then less and less as 'mysteriousness' becomes important). The history & origin (dating back to Ancient Greece) of Mystery Cults is examined as are various myths and the relevance of Judaism and even Oriental mysteries. It is essentially concluded that many primary tenets of the Christian religion actually pre-date Christianity. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

"The Romance of Arthur"
[ send me this paper ]
A 10 page paper which discusses the strengths and weaknesses of several essays which are to be found in "The Romance of Arthur: An Anthology of Medieval Texts in Translation" by James J. Wilhelm. The essays discussed are "Arthur in the Latin Chronicles" by James J. Wilhelm, "Arthur in the Early Welsh Tradition" by John K. Bollard, "Culhwch and Olwen" by Richard M. Loomis, and "Arthur in Geoffrey of Monmouth" by Richard M. Loomis. These papers stand to have far more strengths than weaknesses in that they truly present the reader with an in-depth knowledge of who Arthur may well have been, and where much of his myth originated. No additional sources cited.
