The Myth of the Goddess Summary

The Myth of the Goddess: The Evolution of an Image by Anne Baring

This book traces the evolution of ideas and images of the goddess in the West from prehistoric times, through Crete, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and the Middle East to her manifestation in Judaism (Eve etc), Christianity (Mary) and agnosticism (Sophia). The perspective is historical with Jungian overtones. Images are interpreted, not merely presented, and it is argued that the goddess needs to play a more valued role today.
