The Book of the Goddess Past and Present: An Introduction to Her Religion – Carl Olson

The Book of the Goddess Past and Present: An Introduction to Her Religion - Carl OlsonThis comprehensive text, highly acclaimed as the premier sourcebook on goddesses, introduces readers of religion to the various manifestations and complex nature of the goddess. Often a stranger to contemporary devotees of monotheistic religions, the goddess forces the recognition of female power, which can transform deeply held beliefs. The recent renewed interest in goddesses and the rise of feminist scholarship are addressed in this well-chosen collection of essays, written by an international group of scholars. The book elucidates the diverse religious cultures and periods of history in which goddesses have played an important role by providing examples of ancient and modern goddesses in Eastern and Western religious traditions, in major world and tribal religions, and in living religions and those no longer practiced.
