Download Viaje a las puertas del infierno: Las entradas ocultas del by Fermín Bocos PDF

By Fermín Bocos

Impulsado por l. a. curiosidad, el periodista y escritor Fermín Bocos emprende una serie de viajes a «lugares señalados donde aún hoy reverbera el eco de ceremonias ancestrales… un viaje a l. a. semilla del temor más antiguo y duradero entre las gentes de Occidente… el miedo al Infi erno». Y su recorrido conduce al lector desde casi los angeles vuelta de l. a. esquina –el monasterio onubense de l. a. Rábida o el de San Lorenzo de El Escorial– a remotos rincones de deslumbrante exotismo –las ruinas de Babilonia, los angeles tumba de los guerreros de terracota de Xian o el templo dedicado al diablo en Taisoji, en pleno Tokio–, sin olvidar los centros de l. a. cultura y los angeles espiritualidad clásica y cristiana –el Lago Averno, Eleusis, el Necromanteion, l. a. tumba de Dante, el monte Hermón en el Golán, l. a. Iglesia del Purgatorio en Roma o Turín, «la ciudad del Diablo»–, hasta acabar en Monte Athos, que cierra el periplo cambiando los angeles perspectiva y apuntando a una posible «puerta del Cielo».

Un viaje donde no sólo abundan las resonancias míticas y religiosas, sino también las sorpresas que esperan a todo viajero avisado y despierto: por estas páginas desfilan monjes y poetas, pero también vendedores de souvenirs y exorcistas; paisajes idílicos y templos esplendorosos, junto a atascos y retrasos en aeropuertos; imágenes de conmovedora belleza y ciudades asfixiadas por los angeles contaminación; Historia Antigua y Medieval… y l. a. más candente actualidad. Y, entreverada, una sospecha: tal vez el Infierno no sólo está a un lado de las tétricas puertas.
