Description

Ancient Symbol Worship: Influence of the Phallic Idea in the Religions of Antiquity, by Hodder Westropp & C. Staniland Wake. Phallic worship has been practiced by cultures throughout the world for thousands of years. The male phallic was recognized as the bringer of life & the progenitor of the human race. As with many ancient cultures, a more complete understanding of the phenomena of sexual intercourse was to remain a mystery & even today, some of those mysteries remain. The beliefs of the reciprocal principles of nature, male & female, light & dark, active & passive, was known in most of the primitive religious systems of both the old & new worlds. Thus, what resulted was the common veneration paid to the sexual parts as they were associated with the productive & generative principles in nature. The Phoenicians, Egyptians, Phrygians, Greeks, Hindus & many others have legends & myths concerning phallic worship that date back to prehistory. This book explores the origins of phallic worship, its influence on the religions of antiquity, serpent symbolism, the tree of knowledge, the "fall of man" & sun-god worship in antiquity. This book makes available important knowledge that would otherwise not be known today.
