I'm looking for stuff on modern interpretations of religions and how they intermingle and carry over into each other. How mythology morphs in such cases as pagan Saturnalia translating over to Christmas. Maybe even breaking stuff like investigative religious journalism. I've always been interested in the subject but have done no reading on it. Specifically interested in Christianity but anything interesting on any religion in any time period is cool.

I was really high when I wrote this, I meant interpretations of events like as to what may have actually happened, not religious meaning btw.

Thanks, I'll check it out. Looks like exactly what I'm looking for.

Other anon here to second TGB; it's a book that really influences how one view's the world.
I'm tempted to recommend The White Goddess, but I haven't read it yet myself; it looks to be in a similar vein to TGB's.

Twg is a bit more of a narrow focus than tgb but graves is a much better historian. Frazer was og but that means they hadn't really sorted out how to do research properly at the time and had to learn.

Bart Ehrmann wrote a lot about different christian sects that existed at some point and were quite influential but died off.

There's this author called E.R. Dodds. He specialized on greek cultural history. He doesn't talk much about our present time, but he has this amazing book called "Greeks and the irrational" about the pagan, magic, mystic roots of greek culture. It quotes really obscure sources and gives a pretty good explanation of some greek cultural and psychological phenomenon. It's pretty well reviewed in the academic community. He also wrote a book on the socio-psychological consequences of the advent of early christianism in pagan cultures, it's called "Pagan and christian in the age of anxiety". I think it's a pretty good place if you want to go beyond scientific divulgation, but still want something sort of general and literary, and not some uninteligible academic mash up of ancient and modern languages intertwined from a thousand different sources.
