    DescriptionThis book is a facsimile reprint and may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages. This book is the outcome of work undertaken in Greece during Mr. Lawson's two years' tenure of the Craven Studentship from 1898 to 1900. The scheme of the work originally proposed was the investigation of the customs and superstitions of modern Greece in their possible bearing upon the life and thought of ancient Greece. Partial Contents: survival of tradition; survival of pagan deities; communion of gods and men; relation of soul and body; cremation and inhumation; benefit of dissolution; union of gods and men; index of Greek words and phrases.
