9780520058750: Homo Necans: The Anthropology of Ancient Greek Sacrificial Ritual and Myth

Blood sacrifice, the ritual slaughter of animals, has been basic to religion through history, so that it survives in spiritualized form even in Christianity. How did this violent phenomenon achieve the status of the sacred? This question is examined in Walter Burkert's famous study.
