Description
Why do people pray with their hands together? Why are there nine classifications of angels? Who wrote the Bible, the Torah, the Koran? Why does Judaism allow divorce, but Roman Catholicism does not? Charles Panati, the bestselling author of Extraordinary Origins of Everyday Things, has an obsession with getting to the root cause of things -- and has made a career out of it. Now, in this enlightening and entertaining work he covers the entire spectrum of religious items and ideas, exploring the origins of sacred practices and customs, the reasons for religious holidays and ritualistic symbols, the meanings of vestments, sacraments, devotions, and prayers, and more.
