Pagan & Christian Creeds: Their Origin and Meaning
by Dr. Ed. Carpenter
One of the best comparative studies in magic and religion. The origin and evolution of rites, myths, symbols etc.
“Thus the subject of religious origins is somewhat complex, and yields many aspects for consideration. It is only, I think, by keeping a broad course and admitting contributions to the truth from various sides, that valuable results can be obtained. It is absurd to suppose that in this or any other science neat systems can be found which will cover all the facts. Nature and History do not deal in such things, or supply them for a sop to Man’s vanity.”
