Prolegomena to the study of Greek religion by Jane Ellen Harrison ( Book )
99 editions published between 1903 and 2011 in English and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jane Harrison examines the festivals of ancient Greek religion to identify the primitive "substratum" of ritual and its persistence in the realm of classical religious observance and literature. In Harrison's preface to this remarkable book, she writes that J. G. Frazer's work had become part and parcel of her "mental furniture" and that of others studying primitive religion. Today, those who write on ancient myth or ritual are bound to say the same about Harrison. Her essential ideas, best developed and most clearly put in the Prolegomena, have never been eclipsed
Ancient art and ritual by Jane Ellen Harrison ( Book )
93 editions published between 1913 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The point of the title 'Ancient Art and Ritual' and the real gist of my argument lie perhaps in the word "and"--that is, in the intimate connection which I have tried to show exists between ritual and art. This connection has, I believe, an important bearing on questions, as, for example, the question of the place of art in our modern civilization, its relation to and its difference from religion and morality. I have taken Greek drama as a typical instance, because in it we have the clear historical case of a great art, which arose out of a very primitive and almost world-wide ritual. [author]

This brief study is a historia in the Greek sense of the word an inquiry into the nature of Greek religion; an attempt to see how it started and then developed; how it resembles and differs from other religions. It asks, and does its best to answer the question, What in Greek religion is characteristically Greek?"
