The Encyclopedia of Heaven is an extensive study of paradise, gathering diverse interpretations of the glorious afterlife from around the world and across the ages. Covering everything from ancient mythic images of splendid ethereal kingdoms to modern "near death experience" apparitions of luminous tunnels, this volume offers hundreds of fascinating depictions of the great beyond. Sources include religious texts, works of art and literature, television and film productions, epic poems, opera and stage plays, reincarnation concepts, African legends, and Native American beliefs. The Encyclopedia of Heaven also looks at how the glories of paradise have been incorporated into contemporary pop culture, figuring into Rap music, merchandising fads, comic books, and more. From the Elysian Fields to Avalon; Dante's Paradiso to the African paradise Asamando, take a look at the thrilling, compelling, sometimes startling depictions of the sweet hereafter that have emerged over the ages.
