Abstract

The essay focuses on the relationship between the hermeneutic of religions in the original perspective of Mircea Eliade's works, and the way by which Julien Ries, a disciple of Eliade, employees and values some essential aspects of Eliade's point of view. More particularly, I clarify three important elements that in both perspectives play an important role, in order to highlight the experience of homo religiosus. These elements are symbol, myth and rite, considered as universal elements of the structure of human constitution. The main question of the essay will be: how does Ries display Eliade's research? As a result of the study, I expect a first comprehension of the scientific relationship between the two scholars.
