The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a wide-ranging comparative study of mythology and religion, written by Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer (1854-1941). It was first published in two volumes in 1890; the third edition, published 1906-15, comprised twelve volumes. It was aimed at a broad literate audience raised on tales as told in such publications as Thomas Bulfinch's The Age of Fable, or Stories of Gods and Heroes (1855). It offered a modernist approach to discussing religion, treating it dispassionately as a cultural phenomenon rather than from a theological pe

Ovid's Fasti by Ovid( Book )

96 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BCE-17 CE), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his Ars Amatoria, and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us, and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in exile. Ovid's main surviving works are the Metamorphoses, a source of inspiration to artists and poets including Chaucer and Shakespeare; the Fasti, a poetic treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half; the Amores, love poems; the Ars Amatoria, not moral but clever and in parts beautiful; Heroides, fictitious love letters by legendary women to absent husbands; and the dismal works written in exile: the Tristia, appeals to persons including his wife and also the emperor; and similar Epistulae ex Ponto. Poetry came naturally to Ovid, who at his best is lively, graphic and lucid. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Ovid is in six volumes

The belief in immortality and the worship of the dead by James George Frazer( Book )

55 editions published between 1913 and 2013 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1913 volume discusses several religions whereby believers worship the dead both in hopes that the dead will bless their futures and in hopes that the dead will rise up to bless the living. This concept of the undead or dead rising again is present in some capacity in many religions, even mainstream ones like Christianity (i.e. the resurrection). This volume highlights those beliefs among the Aborigines in Australia, New Guinea and Melanesia

The golden bough : the roots of religion and folklore by James George Frazer( Book )

23 editions published between 1890 and 2004 in English and Turkish and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Golden Bough describes our ancestors' primitive methods of worship, sex practices, strange rituals and festivals. Disproving the popular thought that primitive life was simple, this monumental survey shows that savage man was enmeshed in a tangle of magic, taboos, and superstitions. Revealed here is the evolution of man from savagery to civilization, from the modification of his weird and often bloodthirsty customs to the entry of lasting moral, ethical, and spiritual values
