It is here I must refer back to Robertson- Smith's dictum on mythology, for it is the necessary preliminary to showing that belief cannot enter into life except through the sociological units into which all humanity fits itself; or rather, I would prefer Robertson- Smith's way of putting it, " the circle into which a man was born was not simply a human society, a circle of kinfolk and fellow- citizens, but embraced also certain divine beings, the gods of the family and the state, which to the ancient mind were as much a part of the particular community with which they stood connected as the human members of the social group."- "Folklore as an Historical Science", George Laurence Gomme.
