hardly expect every citizen or every member of a clan to remember the ritual, often extremely complicated; but this is a very different matter from an individual sacrificing or praying on his own behalf alone.

All this is not to be taken as meaning that the religion, even the native religion, of Italy was and remained on a low level. Such is not the case; it was orderly, decent, and as far as it went, moral. The gods were thought of, for the most part, as reasonable and respectable beings, a sort of upper class of citizens, having the civic virtues, and such of the private ones as are of use to the state or the clan, well developed. In other words, when we find Italian religion articulate enough for us to study it, it is no longer purely savage, at any rate it is well removed from the lowest grades of savagery. But in its form and in many of its conceptions, the theology, if it can be called such, of Italy before the influence of Greece made itself felt, still shows clearly enough the savage past which lay no very great distance behind it.,
