This is volume two of the Adriani and Kruyt's ethnography on the Bare'e-speaking Toraja of central Celebes. Volume two deals with religious aspects of Toraja life, with additional information on marriage, sickness, pregnancy and birth, child rearing and death and burial. A separate chapter dealing with Islam on the southern side of Tomini Bay contains information on acculturation of the native Toraja population. The remaining chapters deal specifically with the spirit world, the role and function of the priestesses in the society, various sicknesses and their treatment, marriage customs, the reproductive cycle from conception to birth, child care and child rearing from the cradle to puberty, and finally a detailed discussion on death and burial practices.
