For more on this, I recommend "A History of God" by Karen Armstrong. Many of the concepts she discusses there are directly relevent to Gloranthan theology, particularly in the West but more generaly too. The first chapter also touches on the timeless nature, and cosmological role of ritual in the ancient world. It realy is an excellent book.
