Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With authoritative texts and hundreds of full-color illustrations, these two latest volumes continue Living Wisdom's tradition of excellence.

The Goddess taps into Americans' growing interest in female deities and ancient rites. As New York Newsday noted, "Goddess worship, no longer thought of as esoteric, if not blasphemous, is going mainstream". This provocative book brings to life the rituals, symbolism, and significance of the Goddess from ancient to modern times, touching on fertility, motherhood, feminism, Wicca, and much more.

Sacred Architecture explores humankind's quest for spiritual retreats and gateways to the divine. From Egyptian pyramids to Baroque cathedrals, this beautiful book stops off at a wide range of sacred sites while exploring such subjects as feng shui, celestial alignments, temple design and construction, and activities of worship and sacrifice.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 172-174) and index.
