Since all of the essays except the last were originally delivered as lectures their introductory character and lively oral style make them particularly accessible to the intelligent nonspecialist Rather than a popularization i Occultism Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions i is the fulfillment of Eliade s conviction that the history of religions should be read by the widest possible audience by Mircea Eliade
