The Golden Bough. A Study in Magic and Religion. Part 3. The Dying God by James Frazer (1854 - 1941).


The fourth volume in Frazer's seminal 12 volume set on anthropology and traditional systems of belief. With this third part of The Golden Bough we take up the question, why had the King of the Wood at Nemi regularly to perish by the hand of his successor? Topic investigated include the practice and intention of human sacrifice, the mortality of gods, the regular killing of divine kings and spirits, and the supersitions surrounding the succession of the soul.

goldenbough3_thedyinggod_01_frazer_128kb.mp3 might be an awkward prefix to work with because this book is actually the 4th volume in the series. Some of the parts in the golden bough are in 2 volumes, which may cause a small confusion.

Is this the third in the series you are recording? Your other two recordings filenames are

goldenbough1_##_frazer_128kb.mp3 and
goldenbough2_##_frazer_128kb.mp3

so goldenbough3_##_frazer_128kb.mp3 would seem the logical next one in sequence, but if you would prefer goldenbough4 that's fine.

I know its 'part 3' but im skipping ahead from part 2 'taboo and the perils of the soul' out of personal interest to read this volume first. I will probably return to the 3rd volume after this one
