Summary

Drawing from ethnographic examples found throughout the world, this revised and updated text, hailed as the best general text on religion in anthropology available, offers an introduction to what anthropologists know or think about religion, how they have studied it, and how they interpret or explain it since the late 19th century. Winzeler's balanced consideration of classic topics, basic concepts, and new developments in the anthropological study of religion moves beyond cultural anthropology and ethnography to gather information from physical anthropology, prehistory, and archaeology. Written as a sophisticated but accessible treatment of the issues, Anthropology and Religion is a key text for upper-division courses.
