Oxford Clarendon Press, 1925. First Edition. Preface by James G. Frazer. 

'An crucial work on the nature of Greek religion. Martin Persson Nilsson (1874-1967) was a Swedish philologist, mythographer, and a scholar of the Greek, Hellenistic and Roman religious systems. In his studies he combined literary evidence with archaeological evidence, linking historic and prehistoric evidence for the evolution of the Greek mythological cycles.

' A History of Greek Religion' is probably his most famous work, and includes chapters on the Origins of Greek Mythology; Primitive Belief and Ritual; Gods of Nature and of Human Life; the Homeric Anthropomorphism and Rationalism; Legalism and Mysticism; and the Religion of the Cultured Classes and the Religion of the Peasants.'
