Redefining the SacredIn Print
For tens of thousands of years, we belonged to the land we lived on. Then we decided that the land belonged to us. Why? This book traces our cultural development from hunter-gatherers to semi-nomads, through to the adoption of agriculture and city life. The Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Celts and northern Europeans all had pantheons of gods and goddesses. What changed and led to the idea of just one, all-powerful God? The evolution of human beliefs is a fascinating story!
