Blurb/Shorttext:
Extant archeological and anthropological evidence of the Great Mother Goddess dates back to 35.000 BCE. It appears that, over time, the Feminine Divine was reshaped and renamed through myth, art, and ritual to fulfill each society's own need, to fit their self-image and religious schema. Nearly obliterated as the Great Creatrix before the turn of the Common Era, She is being reclaimed from the collective unconscious and incorporated into Western spirituality through the prominence of Great Mother archetypes in a previously unclassified contemporary literary genre emerging from the United States: Sacred Feminine literature. Readers, en mass, are responding to these stories as chronicles of feminine mythology and spirituality, connecting them to the time when the Goddess prevailed in daily life and ritual and leading them on a spiritual journey of self- and divine discovery. A thought- provoking blend of literary, psychological, historical and theological elements make this text useful to those studying in the disciplines of: thealogy, literature and theology, sociology, feminist archetypal theory, women's studies and interdisciplinary work.
