Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here, archaeologically documented is the story of the religion of the Goddess. Known by many names, she reigned supreme in the Near and Middle East. How did the change in women's roles come about? By documenting the wholesale rewriting of myth and religious dogmans, Stone details an ancient conspiracy that laid the foundation for one of culture's greatest shams--the legend of Adam and fallen Eve.

Synopsis:

Here, archaeologically documented,is the story of the religion of the Goddess. Under her, womens roles were far more prominent than in patriarchal Judeo-Christian cultures. Stone describes this ancient system and, with its disintegration, the decline in womens status. Index; maps and illustrations.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 246-257) and index.
