[ENGLISH: ANTHROPOLOGY] The Golden Bough by James George Frazer
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. ( Leon Harvey)
This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections.
