A thorough examination of many aspects of morality through the lens of Christianity, this book, originally published in 1939, is philosophical in its approach to assessing religion. It compares moral traditions of many world religions and describes their changes over time as well. Written accessibly, this is a fascinating outlay of moral theology

Wit and wisdom in Morocco : a study of native proverbs by Edward Westermarck( Book )

38 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A work dealing with Morocco by Professor Westermarck dedicated to Sir James Frazer should be sure of a favourable reception, though it may be fancied that its subject evokes far less interest in this country than in France, which devotes more than one journal to the institutions of her Protectorate, and can show a whole library of monographs, many of them highly expert, dealing with the country. The Arabs have a saying likulli maqamin magalun "every occasion has its formula," and the Professor, who has taken the trouble to collect 2013 of such formula, has divided them into subjects, and in each case explained the occasion to which it is suitable. He has printed them in Arabic script and in elaborate transliteration, and pre-fixed a valuable introduction, in which the characteristics of the proverbial style are acutely analysed. His work is there-fore without question an important addition to the literature of proverbs, to that of the Arabic vernaculars, and to that of "folklore " in the literal sense of the word. -- from http://www.jstor.org (June 16, 2014)

Ritual and belief in Morocco by Edward Westermarck( Book )

16 editions published between 1926 and 2013 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the years of 1898 and 1926, Edward Westermarck spent a total of seven years in Morocco, visiting towns and tribes in different parts of the country, meeting local people and learning about their language and culture; his findings are noted in this two-volume set, first published in 1926. Alongside extensive reference material, including Westermarck’s system of transliteration and a comprehensive list of the tribes and districts mentioned in the text, the chapters discuss such areas as the influences on and relationship between religion and magic in Morocco, the origins of beliefs and practices, curses and witchcraft. This is the first volume of two dealing with the same subject, and will fascinate any student or researcher of anthropology with an interest in the history of ritual, culture and religion in Morocco. -- Publisher description
