Myths of the Female Divine
David Leeming and Jake Page
From the fertile earth mothers of the ancient world to the modern revival of interest in Wicca, or witchcraft, images and tales of the Female Divine have intimidated, comforted, and inspired humanity from time immemorial. In Goddess, authors David Leeming and Jake Page gather some 75 of the most potent and meaningful of these tales in an extraordinarily rich and readable account of this divine figure as she has been depicted from prehistory to the present. Along the way, we gain new insight into the changing role of women, our continuing development as a species, and our deepest concerns about ourselves, our world, and human destiny.
