Arthur Frothingham, one of the founding fathers of Art History, presents an ambitious overview of the development of orientation in the practice of ancient religions. Orientation, or the directionality of sacrifice, prayer, and ritual, played a key role in ancient ceremonies and Frothingham brings his encyclopedic knowledge of literature and art across a variety of ancient cultures to bear upon the rituals of the ancient Near-East, China, Etruria, Rome, Christianity, Northern Europe, and Greece. The entire piece is an intriguing example of cross-cultural religious practices and methods for making sense of them.
