Stray Thoughts About Ritual

And they are verrrrrry stray thoughts.

Who first came up with the idea of ritual?

Who invented altars?

Who first incorporated music and dance in ritual?

Who first used ritual to purify?

To praise?

To appease a Deity?

To express joy and thankfulness?

Who developed the profession of clergy?

Who wrote the original religious “book”?

Who developed the concept of sacred space?

Who first used plants, herbs, and animals in ritual?

Who first recognized spirit/Deity and its relationship to us?

Who first used symbols to represent concepts in ritual?

Who first used fire, water, incense, and crystals in ritual?

Where would our world’s faiths be without any of these things?

Who do we thank?
