Abstract

A historical survey of the increase of the list of Tegelen mammals precedes the description of some fossils, namely a scapula, a few upper and one lower molar, a humeral shaft and part of a horn-core of Leptobos cf. elatus (Pomel),, fragments of an upper and a lower last milk molar and a large fragment of a second molar of Archidiskodon meridionalis, archaic form, some upper and lower teeth of Macaca florentina, and the young, almost complete lower dentition of Sus strozzii. A comparison of the Tegelen mammals with other Villafranchian faunas leads to the conclusion that the resemblance to the mammalian assemblages of Val d'Arno superiore and of Senèze is great, and that the Tegelen Clay is a deposit of the Günzian period, and thus distinctly older than the Cromer Forest-Bed which has been formed in the Günz-Mindel Interglacial. The Tegelen mammalian fauna belongs to the Upper-Villafranchian, and most probably lived in the Günz-Interstadial.

Abstract

Three species of Trogontherium have existcd in Eurazia. The geologically oldest is the beaverrat-sized Upper-Pliocene Trog. minus Newton of the lowest strata (Nodule Bed) of the Red Crag in East-Anglia and in the Astian fauna of Roussillon. It also occurred in Siberia. The type skull of the beaver-sized Trog. boisvilletti (Laugel) has been found in St. Prest, near Paris, and all the isolated skeleton bones are known from the Trogontherium Clay of Tegelen in the Netherlands, where this gnawer was abundant among an Upper-Villafranchian fauna (Archidiskodon meridionalis, (archaeic type), Eucladoceros, Sus strozzii, Leptobos, Mimomys pliocaenicus, etc.) of the Günz-interstadium. Of the third species, Trog. cuvieri Fischer, the jaws and teeth were distinctly larger and the skull more specialized by the existance of a ductus pneumaticus cranii, similar to that of the American Castoroides. The sands of Mosbach yielded the richest material of this species. The generic name of Amblycastor (MATTHEW, 1918) has to give way to that of Anchitheriomys (ROGER, 1898) for the beaver-sized Upper-Miocene castorid of the holarctic area, because the diagnosis of the genus Amblycastor (STIRTON, 1935) fits exactly Anchitheriomys the knowledge of which has been considerably augmented by SEEMANN (1938).

Abstract

An overview of the sociology of religion of the last few decades, shows that there is no consensus among social scientists as to the influence of religious beliefs on behaviour in other non-religious aspects of life. As a hypothesis the authors pose that traditional religion exerts a conservative influence on political convictions Next a theoretical model is described in which religion and politics are related via intermediate elements, which exists of value orientations and social-political beliefs. As an introduction to the results, the Lisrel-technique is briefly discussed, which is used as a statistical model of analysis. The hypothesis is tested on a 1979 national sample (N = 1007) in the Netherlands. The results show that, for people who attach great importance to religion, there is a causal chain from religion to politics which goes via the above mentioned intermediate stations.
