Eliade is known for his attempt to find broad, cross-cultural parallels and unities in religion, particularly in myths. Eliade approaches religion by imagining an ideally "religious" person, whom he calls homo religiosus in his writings.

Ive actually lost track of how many times Ive read this book or at least portions of it. In college I was a huge Eliade fan—my advisor was a student of his, after all—and indeed, when it comes to the analysis of mythology across cultures, he is the giant in whose shadow everyone labors.
