The first series, published in 1889 (2nd edn, 1894), has long been a classic work. The second and third series were never published, owing to the authors ill health- however, the manuscript of them still exists in the Cambridge University Library and was recently discovered by John Day, who has produced this edited version of the work to commemorate the centenary of Smiths death. The Lectures, which constitute a work of considerable Semitic and Classical learning, are on the following subjects: Feasts, Priests and the Priestly Oracle, Prophecy and Divination, Semitic Polytheism and Cosmogony.

Dr Day has written an Introduction, which evaluates the work and includes nineteenth-century press reports of the Lectures.
