Description

The underlying theme of the work is Frazer’s theory of a general development of modes of thought from the magical to the religious and, finally, to the scientific.

Adonis-A Study in the History of Oriental Religion is a reproduction of Book 1 of James G Frazer’s Adonis, Attis, Osiris, which forms Part IV of his most famous work, The Golden Bough, which is noted for its important contributions to the study of early religion and anthropology.
