Overview

In this 1902 book for students on the early history of religion, the eminent Victorian scholar presents discussions of the supernatural, sympathetic magic, life and death, totem and taboo, animal sacrifice, fetishism, mythology, priesthood, the afterlife, monotheism, the evolution of belief, and more—with the purpose of showing that the “interests of truth and religion are fundamentally identical.”
