Abstract: 'When Sir James George Frazer began his investigation of the legend of the hunted priest in the sacred grove at Nemi in 1889, he hoped to draw a 'picture of moving panorama of the vanished life of primitive man all over the world, from the tropics to the poles." The result, forty-six years later, was The Golden Bough, a twelve-volume masterpiece that became the classic study of the origins of magic and religion--and, in the words of Time magazine, "one of the twentieth century's most influential books."...[It] holds a magnifying glass to Frazer's insights into the nature of magic and religion, insights that range widely between cultures and across time.'
