I understand here by "rituals" the formalized actions expressive of religion; by "religion" I mane those systems of theory and belief which are intended to reconcile the natural and supernatural worlds. While, therefore, it expatiates to some extent on religion "as part of a people's mental life and...tier interpretation of the world around them, " it ignores "the role of religion in the economic system" and as "a social Process" (Lawrence and Meggitt, 1965: 7). It is not intended to be any more; therefore I have largely omitted reference to the history of the area.
