In every great religion, ritual is as necessary as creed. It instructs, nourishes, and often begets belief; it brings the believer into comforting contact with his God; it charms the senses and soul with drama, poetry and art; it binds individuals into a fellowship and a community by persuading them to share in the same rites, the same prayers, at last the same thoughts. -- Will Durant, The Story of Civilization, Vol IV (The Age of Faith), 1950.
