Editorial Reviews


"Bietenholz's extended essay is interesting not only as compilation but also as argument." Thomas V. Cohen, Canadian Journal of History, 1995. "Comparative mythologists and students of religion will find this very readable summary, with its sparsely but well selected representations, to be a helpful preface to the new complexities and renewed interpenetrations of historia and fibula in the twentieth century." Roy Arthur Swanson, Religious Studies Review, 1995.
