The Modern Scholar: Religion, myth, and magic: the anthropology of religion


Anthropologist Susan Johnston turns a scholarly eye on one of humankind%27s primary interests throughout history: the spiritual belief system. Beginning her lectures with an attempt to define religion, Professor Johnston continues this intriguing study with an examination of mythology and symbols, rituals and witchcraft, gender, politics, and religion%27s place in the many customs surrounding death. A continuing and often contentious presence in the world today, religion, from its origins to the present, is a key component for understanding communities and cultures all over the globe.
