Summary
"Ancient civilisations exercise an intense fascination for people the world over. This book takes the 'story' of religion as far back as Palaeolithic cave art, tracing the religious beliefs of ancient Egypt, Ugarit, Mesopotamia, ancient Israel, Greece and Rome, ancient Europe, the Indus Valley civilisation, ancient China and the Aztecs and Incas. Each set of religious beliefs and practices is described in its cultural and historical context, via a range of different sources, enabling the reader to obtain a rounded view of the role of religion in these ancient societies."--Jacket
