Dragons and Dragon Lore

Author: Ernest Ingersoll

This rare and fascinating book is filled with incredible information about he oldest mythological story in the world -- that of the dragon. Similar stories exist worldwide, in all cultures, of this elusive and powerful creature. The author states that the dragon is connectd with the powers and doings of the earliest gods, and like them is vague, changeable and contradictory in its attributes, maintaining from first to last only one definable characteristic -- association with and control of water.

Ingersoll contends that the dragon mythology was actually born in the East, then carried to the West later. The ancient gods of the eastern world played both good and bad roles, which caused the legends of the dragon and dragon-slayer to spring up. May of the early gods were strongly associated with dragons and serpents, as the walls of many ancient temple wll attest.

When the evil dragons of history were carried over to the Western world, we found ourselves with 'Satan', who inherited the dragon's horns, red color tail, cloven hoofs, and wings. This was no coincidence. The name of Satan (Shatan) also came from an Oriental language of the East -- out of Persia. Most of us in the West have no idea of the depth and magnitude of dragon lore in the Eastern World, but that is the most important part of the dragon story. This book is rich with facts and is extremely well researched.

It will cause one to wonder why so many dragon stories from so many different places around the world seem to have so much in common.
