Considers the significance of religious myth, symbolism, and ritual within life and culture. An exciting introduction to the religious life of mankind and a welcome relief from those introductory books in religion which present only the bare, sterile 'facts' or which reduce the religious life of mankind to the author's current philosophical point of view. Translated into English from the French by Willard R. Trask. Includes an Index.
