The Britannica Guide to Religion Series


Offering both personal fulfillment and practical guidance, religions often comprise a complex interplay of theology, history, mythology, moral philosophy, and ritual. As many religions spread across the globe, they evolve over time and assume new cultural hues, thus creating "lived religions" whose practices, while anchored in their doctrinal foundations, blend in various facets of local traditions and beliefs. The key events, ideas, literature, figures, institutions, and customs central to the spiritual life of two such faiths -- Christianity and Judaism -- are considered in depth in these insightful volumes.
