He viwes the religion in and as dependent on, the peoples natural surroundings. He first discusses the forest and water worlds, since the most ancient Estonian religious images and customs originated in the hunters' and fishermens'environment. This is followed by a discussion of the earth, sky or heaven, and the home circle (farm) ---- the final chapters are devoted to such universal questions as the soul, death, and the world beyond.
