Starting with solar creation myths, this volume explores ancient ideology surrounding the sun and moon, solar mythology, and solar folklore. An extended analysis of sun worship around the world leads to accounts of sun-catcher myths and solar festivals. Solar omens, traditions, and superstitions are discussed at length, along with the solar significance of burial customs and emblematic and symbolic forms of the sun.
