Through studying the origins of words common to Sumerian and subsequent Middle Eastern languages, John Allegro presents a theory about the ways in which the ideas carried in these words continued into the beliefs, myths and practices of later religions, including Judaism and Christianity. Allegro believes that the sacred mushroom (Amanita muscaria) was the source and centre of countless ancient myths and rituals, and his challenging argument asserts that its use remained central to biblical traditions for centuries.
