“The old gods are growing old or are already dead, and others are not yet born” ([1912] 1965: 475).

“Religion is in a word the system of symbols by means of which society becomes conscious of itself; it is the characteristic way of thinking of collective existence” ([1897] 1951: 312).

-Emile Durkheim
