Allucinogeni e Cristianesimo - Evidenze nell'arte sacra
Fulvio Gosso & Gilberto Camilla
The Italian Society for the Study of the States of Consciousness
preface by Carl A.P. Ruck
Colibrì Edizioni Milano 2007
Lavishly illustrated, the book presents 30
important examples of medieval to Renaissance
artworks, providing key evidence that psychedelic
mushrooms must surely have played an important
role in Christianity of the time. Illustrations
of stained glass windows in several famous
cathedrals incite one to depart immediately to
the nearest church or cathedral with a pair of
binoculars to search for further such examples,
so obvious are the depictions! Even if you do not
read Italian, the book is a key addition to any library on sacred plants.
