About the Book

Andrew Lang, a Scottish anthropologist and folklorist, wrote the landmark work "Myth, Ritual, and Religion," Volume 2. This work contributes significantly to anthropology and religious studies. In this volume, Lang investigates the interdependence of myth, ritual, and theology in a variety of cultures and communities. He delves into myths and rituals from various civilizations, including ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, and indigenous cultures. Lang studies how myths and rituals can commonly play an important role in molding a society's religious beliefs and practices. He investigates the symbolic value of myths and rituals, emphasizing their role in understanding the mysteries of life, death, and the natural world. Lang's work is notable for its comparative technique, which connects nations in order to discover universal themes and patterns in myth and ritual. He contends that these traditions and ceremonies are not merely historical relics, but they continue to influence present religious’ practices and ideals. Some stories are brutal and weird, while others creep up on you and draw you in slowly. With an eye-catching new cover and professionally typeset copy, this edition of "Myth, Ritual, and Religion Vol. 2" is both current and intelligible.
