Aftermath - A supplement to Golden Bough by Fraser J.G.

By Fraser J.G.

Джеймс Джордж Фрэзер (1854-1941) - известный английский этнограф, исследователь древнеримской литературы и Ветхого Завета, видный представитель классического эволюционизма в антропологии, один из пионеров сравнительного религиоведения, внесший большой вклад в изучение тотемизма, культа природы и верований в загробную жизнь.
«Золотая ветвь» считается одним из наиболее значительных трудов, исследующих истоки религии. В нем Фрэзер собрал и систематизировал уникальный материал по первобытным верованиям, древним и современным религиям, народным обычаям, существующим в различных уголках земного шара.
Опираясь на огромный массив этнографических и исторических данных, автор стремился показать целостную картину верований и обрядов всех эпох. Переведенная на множество языков, эта книга принесла автору мировую известность и представляет несомненный интерес не только для тех, кто занимается историей религии и фольклористикой, но и для самого широкого кpyгa читателей.
Доп. информация
Книги редкие ужасно, в нашей стране, как мне кажется, такое сложно найти, только в крупнейших библиотеках - тем большую ценность книги представляют. Кто знает английский язык, расхватывайте книги скорее!
