Beschreibung

For many Westerners, the term sacrifice is associated with ancient, often primitive ritual practices. It suggests the death of an animal victim, usually with the aim of atoning for human guilt. This work helps us in understanding religious sacrifice and reminds us that the field of religious studies is largely framed by Christianity.

Portrait

Kathryn McClymond is an associate professor of religious studies at Georgia State University.
