    • Pretty much the complete works of Georges Dumézil and Claude Levi-Strauss for mythology, history books by Georges Duby, Fernand Braudel, Robert Mandrou, Jacques Le Goff, Mircea Eliade; and for mythology, the sources as well (in a rough chronological order: Homer, Hesiod, Herodotes, Ovid, the Bible, some Upanishads, the Mahabharata, the Fathers of the Church, the Quran, the Edda, the Skaldsparmal, the Kalevala) and I'm forgetting lots.
