Description

The Golden Bough attempts to define the shared elements of religious belief. Its thesis is that old religions were fertility cults that revolved around the worship of, and periodic sacrifice of, a sacred king. Published in 1890 it offered a modernist approach to discussing religion. The impact of The Golden Bough on contemporary European literature was substantial.
