  • "Verkorte uitgave van het twaalfdelige werk, dat een diepgaande studie bevat over mystiek, symboliek en ritueel in voor-christelijke en primitieve godsdiensten."
  • "An abridgment of the twelve-volume study of primitive man's use and development of magic, customs, social practices, and religion."@en
  • "Presents Frazer's classic study of the origins of magic and religion."
  • "Un'antica leggenda, che - in ricordo del famoso ramo d'oro che Enea colse dietro suggerimento della Sibilla prima di entrare nel regno dell'Ade - voleva "re del bosco" colui il quale si fosse dimostrato capace di uccidere il sacerdote del santuario di Diana a Nemi e di strappare un ramo dall'albero che si trovava nel recinto, incuriosì inizialmente Frazer, il quale volle indagarne le origini, prendendo in esame miti, pratiche religiose e magiche, e riti di ogni tempo e luogo."
  • "The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a wide-ranging, comparative study of mythology and religion, written by Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer (1854?1941). It first was published in two volumes in 1890; the third edition, published 1906?15, comprised twelve volumes. It was aimed at a broad literate audience raised on tales as told in such publications as Thomas Bulfinch's The Age of Fable, or Stories of Gods and Heroes (1855). It offered a modernist approach to discussing religion, treating it dispassionately as a cultural phenomenon rather than from a theological p."@en
  • "A work that echoes from Freud to Apocalypse Now , this sweeping, controversial, and still influential synthesis of human history is based on the author's pioneering studies of mythology and religion. Frazer proposes that civilization began by investing in the theories of primitive magic, then progressing through religion, and ending with a belief in the scientific. He finds parallels between Christianity and earlier myths, cults, and rites."
  • "Presents an abridged version of Frazer's classic study of the origins of magic and religion."
  • "A classic study of the beliefs and institutions of mankind, and the progress through magic and religion to scientific thought, The Golden Bough has a unique status in modern anthropology and literature. First published in 1890, The Golden Bough was eventually issued in a twelve-volume edition (1906-15) which was abridged in 1922 by the author and his wife. That abridgement has never been reconsidered for a modern audience. In it some of the more controversial passages were dropped, including Frazer's daring speculations on the Crucifixion of Christ."@en
  • "The author presents an analysis on the evolution of ancient cults, rites, and religious beliefs and examines the similarities in myths and folktales from different times and cultures."@en
  • ""Sir James George Frazer's The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a broad comparative study of mythology and religion. Treating religion as a cultural phenomenon rather than discussing it from a theological perspective, the effect of The Golden Bough on both European literature and the emerging discipline of anthropology was substantial. The pioneering anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski said of it: 'No sooner had I read this great work than I became immersed in it and enslaved by it. I realized then that anthropology, as presented by Sir James Frazer, is a great science, worthy of as much devotion as any of her elder and more exact studies and I became bound to the service of Frazerian anthropology'"--From publisher."@en
  • "Frazer's groundbreaking study of myth and magic was among the first works of trans-historical anthropology, examining the world-wide beliefs in magic held by ancient peoples, and illuminating the ancient practices of nature worship, the myths of the dying god, and the divine sacrifice of kings."
  • ""A world classic The Golden Bough describes our ancestors' primitive metyhods of worship, sex practices, strange rituals and festivals. Disproving the poplular though that primitive life was simple, this monumental survey shows that savage man was enmeshed in a tangle of magic, taboos, and superstitions.""
