Description
 
Author - Mary Douglas

An anthropologist’s attempt to equate the Biblical basis for food standards and medical cleanliness to pagan practices of magic, healing and acceptable behavior in non-Judeo Christian pagan societies.  Fails to credit  Levitical standards for cleanliness and quarantine as the basis for modern medical science.  Delves into
concepts of “dirt,” taboo and healing in various cultures.
