* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

[size=+1]From the Bryn Mawr Classic Review:[/size]
[Translated from French by Google Translate] Present all the religions of the Middle East in 179 pages is a challenge. Daniel C. Snell has courageously raised and provides its readers with a readable overview that is sweeping the main themes, periods and geographical areas in 17 chapters. The major quality of this work is the combination of a broad and deep scholarship and presentation accessible to non specialists. Of course, sometimes we lose in precision or we fall into some generalizations that experts miss, but the goal is to provide a first overview the bibliographical help, if necessary, to deepen.

[size=+1]Additional Description:[/size]
This book is a history of religious life in the Ancient Near East from the beginnings of agriculture to Alexander the Great's invasion in the 300s BCE. Daniel C. Snell traces key developments in the history, daily life, and religious beliefs of the people of Ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, Israel, and Iran. His research investigates the influence of those ideas on the West, with particular emphasis on how religious ideas from this historical and cultural milieu persist to influence the way modern cultures and religions view the world. Designed to be accessible to students and readers with no prior knowledge of the period, the book uses fictional vignettes to add interest to its material, which is based on careful study of archeological remains and preserved texts. The book will provide a thoughtful summary of the Ancient Near East and includes a comprehensive bibliography to guide readers in further study of related topics.
