In Their Own Words

"In the nineteenth century ... scholars developed categories for organizing the vast amount of new information about the practices and beliefs of the societies over which (Europeans) were exercising increasing dominance. One of the key categories that emerged during this time was religion. The notion emerged that all human beings conducted their lives in relation to higher ... beings or powers."

–Paul B. Courtright
