it was amazing

For me the most interesting of the Nibley books. Nibley surveys religious temples throughout the world and history drawing parallels among the key functions and rites associated with them.

The consistencies among the various temples leads the reader to believe there may be one central source, either historical, geographical, or spiritual behind the various temple cultures in history.

This book launched me into an enduring fascination with ancient texts and ancient ritual.
