Excerpt from The Religious History of Man: Tracing Religion and Superstition From Their Source
IN the following pages, the nature Of the instruction, in Divine things, given to mankind, at various periods, is enquired into; and the inﬂuence of that instruction, on their religious cus toms and opinions, traced.
Those opinions have been so various, and the modes of worship so multiform, that it would be hopeless to attempt such an enquiry within the limits Of the present volume, were it to be accompanied by an analysis, or even an outline, of each system of faith, or form Of devotion, which has had its day, of adoption and of rejection, in the world.
