Summary
This book looks at the world's religions in terms of world history, and as constantly developing systems of belief. Part I traces the development of religions, as they evolved from the traditions of the ancient world. Part 2 examines the changes to faiths and cultures following the Renaissance and the voyages of conquest and discovery, and asks how, why, and with what effect religions have been refashioned over the ages up to today. The religions are described through their symbols, rituals, followers, architecture and art. Recent developments, such as the spread of Islam, African-American and Hispanic-American religious experience, and women priests is also included
