Présentation de l'éditeur :

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Kypros, the Bible and Homer: Oriental Civilization, Art and Religion in Ancient Times The island of Cyprus affords perhaps the most striking instance in the whole history of the world, of a country where century after century the streams of diverse civilizations converging from different sources met and mingled at full flood. The highways of commerce now pass.the island by, but in the early days of the world it was at once the centre of civilized impulse, the link between either shore of the Mediterranean and the remoter East and West, and as such the cynosure of many an ancient people. The beginnings of civilization in Cyprus can be traced back to the same pre-historic period of which we find evidence on the banks of the Nile, Euphrates and Tigris, in Syria and in Asia Minor, and seem to point to a Thraco-Phrygian origin. The remains are neither Semitic nor continental in character, but Indo-Germanic and proper to an island or coast population. The first Greek colonization of the island must have taken place centuries before the period of the Homeric poems. There were Phoenician colonies on the island at a very early period, how early it is impossible exactly to determine until a larger number of older tombs in Phoenicia proper have been opened. The Greek colonists in early times employed a peculiar syllabic written character and adhered to it till about the 4th century B. C. How they came by this written character is a question to which a solution will be offered in the present work. The oldest extant Phoenician inscriptions, themselves the earliest examples of letters properly so called, come from Cyprus. This point too I have, with the kind help of other scholars, demonstrated for the first time. These inscriptions occur on bronze vessels dedicated to the Baal of Lebanon by a Cyprian in the time of the biblical Kings Solomon and Hiram, and deposited on the altar to that divinity which stood on a sacred High Place in Cyprus. In Cyprus, then, we are standing in the very midst of ancient Canaanitish civilization as depicted in the old Testament. On the other hand the worship of Aphrodite, the myth of King Kinvrns and the accounts of the armour of the Achaian heroes, of Agamemnon s coat of mail and of Achilles shield, bring us back again to Cyprus, but from an entirely different cycle of ideas. My excavations and researches during twelve years of unremitting toil in Cyprus brought me on the one hand to the Greeks and Homer, and on the other to the Semites and the Bible. The results of my labours are embodied in the present book Kypros, the Bible and Homer. The early civilization of Troy has found so far its only analogy in Cyprus. The influence of Cyprus and Mycknae on each other was mutual and contemporaneous. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
