Divinity and experience; the religion of the Dinka by R. G Lienhardt( Book )
49 editions published between 1961 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
According to the Dinka people of the Southern Sudan, man and his creator were originally close together. They became separated, like the earth and sky, when the first man and woman acted with human independence. Dinka religious practice follows from that separation. "Divinity and Experience", now reissued for the first time in paperback, has, since its first publication in 1961, acquired the status of a minor classic of social anthropology. In the first section, the various divinities of the Dinka are described with their complex range of meaning and imagery, and related to the Dinka's own experience of the conditions of life and death. They may be interpreted, it is suggested, as images arising out of that experience. The second part discusses the role of the priests, the 'masters of the fishing spear', who interested Fraser in his study of divine worship. Sacrifices are described and their meaning analysed, and finally their rites at the death of priests, some of whom may enter the grave alive, are examined.; Translations of hymns, prayers, and myths are also provided, which serve as a good introduction to the thought and beliefs of the Dinka for those interested in religion and its interpretation

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recent research in Africa has shown a wide range of political systems, from small societies of wandering hunters to large states of several million people comparable with mediaeval European feudal kingdoms. In between are many societies in which a central government is lacking; the political system is based upon a balance of power between many small groups, which with their lack of classes or specialized political offices, have been called 'ordered anarchies'. First published in 1958
