General History of Ceremonies” is an important, 18th-century treatise on the world religions. Written in 1741 by Antoine Banier, this book sought to describe the origins and doctrines of these belief systems and, in doing so, described the peoples and the customs within the religion. Banier gathered information for this work, based on the experiences of Catholic missionaries around the world. And while the descriptions of Judaism, Protestantism, African tribal religions, Muslim, and Hinduism are fairly accurate, they are given from the view of Catholicism.

 

This volume from the 1741 first edition of Banier’s landmark work features engravings of Bernard Picart – exquisite views of costumes, ceremonies, medals, and more. Volume four focuses on western religions, notably the growth of Protestantism in Europe and America.
