Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans by Hans F.K. Günther

In this work the author advances some reflections on the religiosity of the Indo-Europeans - that is to say, the Indo-European speaking peoples originating from a common Bronze Age nucleus.

By comparing the structure of the Indian, Persian, Sacaean, Armenian, Slavic and Baltic languages, and of the Greek, Italian, Celtic and Teutonic dialects, we can reach a conclusion as to a common or primal Indo-European language, approximating to the latter part of the early Stone Age. In the same way, an examination of the laws and legal customs of the different peoples of Indo-European language reveals a primal Indo-European feeling for law. Similarly, from a comparison of the religious forms of these peoples we can identify a particular religious attitude emanating from the Indo-European nature – a distinctive behavior of the Indo-European races towards the divine powers.

Religious belief has profound effects upon our lives and upon the race and civilization to which we belong. Religions produce not only cultural artifacts but they also constitute a controlling influence over what men think, and therefore also over what men do, thus influencing the shape of the future. Professor Günther examines here the innate religiosity of the European peoples.
