Item description for Historical Atlas of Religions (Historical Atlas) by Karen Farrington...

From the dawn of mankind's imagination, we have sought the favour of elemental powers and attempted to appease them with worship and sacrifice. The story of religion is one of learning to live with evolving social structures and determining how faith can provide a structure of beliefs through which we can deal with the world around us. In Historical Atlas of Religions, Karen Farrington shows how different cultures' beliefs evolved, how their influence spread, and where they came into conflict with each other. The book is not partisan; its aims are to enlighten and not to preach, and to put each religion into its own proper context. Historical Atlas of Religions is a delightful encyclopedia of human spiritual endeavor from the earliest forms of animism to the established faiths of modern times.

Reviews - What do customers think about Historical Atlas of Religions (Historical Atlas)?

From early to modern times, religious history comes to life  Sep 3, 2006
Any interested in an overall reference covering the rise and fall of all religions will find Historical Atlas Of Religions a fascinating read: it takes a regional approach to major faiths of the world, includes tribal beliefs form all continents, and provides a visual approach to traditions, conflicts, and issues. From early to modern times, religious history comes to life.
A Quick Overview of Religion  May 11, 2003
Though this book is called an Atlas, and uses the continents for organization and division, this is really a survey book - an overview of religions in the world. What is positive about this book is the breadth of religious issues and movements that are covered from all around the world. The drawback is that many of these overviews are short - taking up a page plus illustrations. And some of the information presented has small mistakes. But overall it is a decent overview for anyone looking to go beyond the local religious information, or wishes to see the breadth of religious practices in the world. However, know the visits are only skin deep - if you want to know more there are more substantial books there to introduce you to major religious movements. A decent way to dip your toe into the breadth of religious beliefs.
