That the story which is told of Samson in the Book of Judges is, to a large extent, of a legendary character and contains many elements of popular tradition well known to the student of folklore, has long been recognized by critics. The present writer hoped, that with his greater advantages, he was able to bring further light upon the subject, and to turn mere guesswork into something like certainty. In this volume, it will be seen that, recognizing the solidarity of the human race and its wonderful psychological unity in all lands, he has not hesitated to illustrate Semitic ideas by those of the Aryans and Turanians, which are often in striking unison. The ideas that go to the making of Samson are common to man wherever he mythologizes, and that is everywhere.
