Summary:

The origin of phallic worship is hidden behind so much obscurity that very little is actually known about it. The Phoenicians, Egyptians, Phrygians, Greeks, Hindus, and many others have legends and myths concerning phallic worship that date back to prehistory. This book explores the origins of phallic worship, its influence on the religions of antiquity, serpent symbolism, the tree of knowledge, the "fall of man", and sun-god worship in antiquity.
