Religion at Work in a Neolithic Society : Vital Matters, Paperback / softback Book

Religion at Work in a Neolithic Society : Vital Matters Paperback / softback

Edited by Ian (Stanford University, California) Hodder


This book tackles the topic of religion, a broad subject exciting renewed interest across the social and historical sciences.

The volume is tightly focused on the early farming village of Catalhoeyuk, which has generated much interest both within and outside of archaeology, especially for its contributions to the understanding of early religion.

The volume discusses contemporary themes such as materiality, animism, object vitality, and material dimensions of spirituality while at the same time exploring broad evolutionary changes in the ways in which religion has influenced society.

The volume results from a unique collaboration between an archaeological team and a range of specialists in ritual and religion.
