  • "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."
  • "The Golden Bough attempts to define the shared elements of religious belief, ranging from ancient belief systems to relatively modern religions such as Christianity. Its thesis is that old religions were fertility cults that revolved around the worship of, and periodic sacrifice of, a sacred king. This king was the incarnation of a dying and reviving god, a solar deity who underwent a mystic marriage to a goddess of the earth, who died at the harvest, and was reincarnated in the spring. Frazer claims that this legend is central to almost all of the world's mythologies. The germ for Frazer's thesis was the pre-Roman priest-king at the fane of Nemi, who was ritually murdered by his successor."@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."
  • "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
  • "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."
