Description : Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 31. Chapters: Evolutionary origin of religions, Matriarchy, Minoan religion, Mother goddess, Paleolithic religion, Religion and ritual of the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture, Urreligion. Excerpt: Matriarchy is a society in which females, especially mothers, have the central roles of political leadership, moral authority, and control of property. It is also sometimes called a gynarchy, a gynocracy, a gynecocracy, or a gynocentric society. The term for males is patriarchy, but, in feminist theory, it is not exactly a parallel term. Most anthropologists hold that there are no known societies that are unambiguously matriarchal, but possible exceptions include the Iroquois, in whose society mothers exercise central moral and political roles. According to Heide Goettner-Abendroth, this reluctance to accept the existence of matriarchies might be based on a specific, culturally biased notion of how to define matriarchy: because in a patriarchy 'men rule over women', a matriarchy has frequently been conceptualized as 'women ruling over men'. Goettner-Abendroth believed that matriarchies are egalitarian. There are also matrilinear, matrilocal, and avunculocal societies, especially among indigenous peoples of the Americas, Asia, and Africa, such as those of the Minangkabau, E De (Rhade), Mosuo, Berbers and Tuareg and, in Europe, e.g., traditionally among Sardinian people. Strongly matrilocal societies sometimes are referred to as matrifocal, and there is some debate concerning the terminological delineation between matrifocality and matriarchy. Even in patriarchical systems of male-preference primogeniture, there may occasionally be queens regnant. In 19th century Western scholarship, the hypothesis of matriarchy representing an early stage of human development-now mostly lost in prehistory, with the exception of some so-called primitive...

Description : "In spite of the sexism that has denied women full active status in their religions, the editor calls this title a "celebration" of the scholarship of recent years. In order to offer a global perspective, contributions were sought from non-Western as well as Western scholars for the 600 signed articles. Entries encompass individual religions and their variations, biographies, movements, issues, and the relationship of religion to the study of art, literature, and science. While broadest coverage is given to the major religions of the world, information is also provided on Sikhism, African religions, Santeria, and Native American religions and many others. An added feature is the synoptic outline, which provides conceptual themes to the reader. This valuable resource is accessible to the high school and college student, to the researcher and the general reader"."In spite of the sexism that has denied women full active status in their religions, the editor calls this title a "celebration" of the scholarship of recent years.

Description : In the classical meaning of an "essay" this book is an "attempt" to try to unify material on religion from a variety of fields into one coherent frame of reference. The author obviously does not claim deep expertise in this luxuriance of disciplinary approaches to the field of religion, but hopes that his efforts, at the very least, will inform some and stimulate others to renewed theorizing about their specialties. The principal objective of this book then is to show that religion has evolved just like any other cultural entity. At the same time, the author parts company from the at times premature conclusions of earlier "evolutionists" of religion and therefore has subtitled the work a "re-examination". The main diversion from such earlier analyses of the evolution of religion as those of Freud and Comte is in the denial that religion can be explained fully in empirical terms as a product of nature or culture. The author assumes that for religion to have begun it must have sprung from some ontologically prior event that Christians would refer to as "creation" and Buddhists as "transdescension", where ultimate Reality "empties" itself into the temporal. In other words, the evolution of religion needs to be understood from a "theological" perspective. At the same time, the author is convinced that there is a great deal of empirical evolutionary information available from the natural and social sciences that sheds helpful light on even theologically oriented religious understanding. Religion will always be around, concludes the author, not merely because of the way that it springs up out of human nature but also because of its adaptability. It thus may be mankind's one best hope ofsurvival.

Description : Among Library Journal's picks of the most important reference works of the millennium - with the Encyclopedia Judaica and the New Catholic Encyclopedia - Mircea Eliade's Encyclopedia of Religion won the American Library Associations' Dartmouth Medal in 1988 and is widely regarded as the standard reference work in the field. This second edition, which is intended to reflect both changes in academia and in the world since 1987, includes almost all of the 2,750 original entries - many heavily updated - as well as approximately 600 entirely new articles. Preserving the best of Eliade's cross-cultural approach, while emphasizing religion's role within everyday life and as a unique experience from culture to culture, this new edition is the definitive work in the field for the 21st century. An international team of scholars and contributors have reviewed, revised and added to every word of the classic work, making it relevant to the questions and interests of all researchers. The result is an essential purchase for libraries of all kinds.
