The Sacred Tree in Religion and Myth by J.H. Philpot


Alleged by ancient cultures around the world to possess both divine and demonic aspects, trees have frequently been linked with cult worship and pagan rituals. This volume focuses on the subject with lively insight, examining topics ranging from the deity-inhabited sycamores worshipped in Egypt to the dreaded moss-women in Central Germany.
