Publisher's Synopsis
This illustrated anthology considers the significance of Goddess myths, psychological perspectives of the feminine principal, religious and traditional views, plus socio-political concerns.

"In this trenchant anthology, Nicholson (Ancient Wisdom - Modern Insight) gathers the work of 23 theologians, historians and other scholars in pursuit of what Stone, a pioneer of modern studies of the mother-Goddess, calls 'the universal feminine principle - the concept of a divine principle in the universe that is specifically associated with the female gender.' These essays collectively imply that this feminine principle is far more profound than a simplistic antithesis of all that we think of as masculine.

Addressing cultural representations of the mother-Goddess, female worship traditions and Goddess-centered rites, and the psychological, social and political implications of a feminine principle, the discussions are commendably free of jargon, combative rhetoric and scholarly infighting."       ~Publishers Weekly
