Cultes Solaires - Offrande au soleil chez les anciens Incas ["Sun Worship - Offering to the sun among the ancient Incas"]

Extrait de Viande de La Cie. Liebig ["Liebig Company Meat Extract"] 

Offrande au soleil chez les anciens Incas. La religion des Incas était un culte de la Nature. Une des divinités les plus adorées était le soleil, souverain de tous les trésors de la nature, dieu de la lumière qui détruit tout ce qui est sombre et méchant, qui délivre les dieux et les hommes de la détresse et qui s’occupe en général du bien-être de l’humanité. Pour s’attirer sa protection, on lui faisait, dans son temple, des offrandes de miel, de fruits, de pain etc.

["Ancient Incan offering to the sun. The religion of the Incas was a cult of nature. One of the most worshipped deities was the sun, sovereign of all the treasures of nature, god of light who destroys everything that is somber and evil, who delivers the gods and men from distress and who concerns himself in general with the well-being of humanity. To earn his protection, they made him offerings of honey, fruit, bread, etc. in their temple."]
