Early in the evolution of religion, there existed two conceptions of sacrifice: the idea of gift sacrifice, which connoted the attitude of thanksgiving; and the idea of debt sacrifice, which embraced the notion of redemption.  But in either case, primitive man gauged the value of his sacrifice by the pain which he suffered; no offering was contemplated which was not productive of pain.
