This is an engaging treatise on prayer throughout history, how people have prayed, what true prayer is, and what it can do. Originally published in 1912, it contains truths that stand fast today. Wright says, “the object of prayer is not to change that which is immutable, a self-evident impossibility, but to alter the conscious or unconscious rebellion of the individual against such law or departure from it.” Wright references other writers and mystics on the subject, thus providing helpful pointers to sources for further study. Allan Armstrong’s Introduction provides additional history and examples of prayer, tracing its practice from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome, to the present. This is an inspiring book that can re-engage people of all faiths in the power of prayer.

The Eleusinian rites emerged from the Greek myth of the goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone to bring forth abundance from the earth. Yet strikingly similar rituals and legends appear in the doctrines of Freemasonry, Buddhism, the early Church, and other religions and spiritual traditions.
In The Eleusinian Mysteries and Rites Dudley Wright explains the core mythology of Demeter and the many stories thought to be born of the myth. He includes an examination of the Ritual of the Mysteries, when and how they are carried out, the rites of initiation and their mystical significance.
Examination of the myth of Demeter and her daughter Persephone shed light on the spiritual lives of many ancient cultures.
