  1. Inertness of subsistence raw materials and number of sovereign groups will be associated with the presence of high gods (302).Simpson, John H. - Sovereign groups, subsistence activities, and the presence of a high god in ..., 1979 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates material and social predictors of belief in a high god. The author introduces a new variable, the inertness of subsistence raw materials, to be compared with Swanson’s (1960) variable representing the number of sovereign groups. Both variables were significant predictors of belief in high gods. Relevant theory is discussed.
