Aquarian Dictionary of Festivals, The
Wellingborough, Aquarian. 1990, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-85030-848-8) Paperback, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. In this dictionary there is a detailed listing of all festivals celebrated by mankind from tribal communities to urban societies. It reflects the origins and persistence of ancient beliefs and customs providing information on the ways and life of the people, past and present. It reveals how festivals were religious before they became civic, they involved the whole community, since in early times there was no dichotomy between the sacred and the secular and they served a dual purpose in uniting both. Very Good.
