Drawing on a wealth of sources, the authors explore the origins and significance of the sword in both secular and religious contexts. They explore how the sword has been used throughout history to bolster military might, to establish political power, and to protect the innocent. They also examine the sword's role in mythology and legend, examining both the positive and negative representations of the sword. Sacred Sword is an essential resource for students and scholars of history, religion, and military history, as well as anyone interested in the meaning and significance of one of the world's most important symbols.; 8vo; Signed by Author.
