Ritual sacrifice : an illustrated history by Brenda Ralph Lewis( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Providing the first general overview of sacrificial practices all over the world, Brenda Lewis's new book takes us from prehistoric times to the present day and visits civilisations as diverse as ancient Greece and pre-Hispanic Mexico. Its broad coverage includes many cultures and beliefs: Druids, Vodun, Aztecs and shamanism. The methods and motives of sacrifice are fully illustrated throughout, be they human, animal, floral, or inanimate." "The modern scientific world has abandoned such ideas and relegated them to the realm of ignorance and superstition. In doing so, science and technology have changed the ancient relationship between nature and humanity - nature is seen as something to be controlled and conquered, rather than appeased. However, Ritual Sacrifice concludes with a chapter detailing the role and practice of sacrifice today, and its importance to the peace of mind of those who still perform these rites."--Jacket
