Frequently linked with cult worship of the sun, moon, and stars, and with sacred springs and stone, tree worship as a pagan ritual was the most widespread. While many books have treated some aspects of tree worship, none has focused on the subject so precisely and with such lively insight as this fine work. Ranging from the deity-inhabited sycamores worshipped in Egypt to the dreaded moss-women of Central Germany, this book presents a fascinating survey of the tree in religion, mythology, and folklore. Invaluable to scholars in many fields, this fascinating compendium of facts, folklore and superstition, enhanced with rare illustrations, will appeal to any reader with an interest in the religions, rituals, and myths of ancient and primitive societies".
