With 25 illustrations. This extended essay on fertility worship in the Classical period was written by Robert Payne Knight, a distinguished English scholar, parlimentarian, writer, and antiquarian. Published in 1786, this book shocked English society to such an extent that Knight took it upon himself to supress it. Although the study of the history of religion has vastly advanced since Knight's day, this was one of the first books to deal with the issue of sexuality and religion.

This book has 93 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1786.

Production notes: This ebook of A Discourse on the Worship of Priapus was published by Global Grey in 2018.
