The Myth of the Goddess: Evolution of an Imageby Anne Baring
Synopses & Reviews
This encyclopedic and easily comprehended work, whose range extends from the Paleolithic Age to the present-day Gaia Hypothesis, is a grand synthesis of art, mythology, literature, and psychology. "A wonderfully readable synthesis . . . packed with riveting illustrations".--Publishers Weekly.
In this study the authors draw upon poetry and mythology, art and literature, archaeology and psychology to show how the myth of the goddess has been lost from our formal Judaeo-Christian images of the divine. The book explains what happened to the goddess, when and how she was excluded.
"An indispensable source work for anyone interested in this very important development of religious ideas."—Marija Gimbutas. Ranges from the Paleolithic Age to the present-day Gaia Hypothesis.
In this definitive and powerfully argued study, the authors draw upon art, mythology, poetry, literature, archaeology, and psychology to show how the myth of the Goddess has been lost from Judeo-Christian images of the divine.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -736) and index.
