A payment of the "Encyclopedia of faith" will yield a truly varied account of this archetype. There are different difficulties in addition. For an important variety of entries, the one reference given is to Maria Leach's "The Beginnings" (Crowell, 1956), a tender grownup booklet. This encyclopedia turns out aimed toward clients in high-school, undergraduate, and public libraries; although, phrases akin to "parthogenic" look with no definitions.
