A richly illustrated testament to the reemergence of the Goddess in the art and in the lives of contemporary women and men.

In this beautifully illustrated and far-reaching history. Elinor Gadon vividly weaves words and images to demonstrate the powerful connections between ancient and contemporary art, between the Goddess of the Ice Age and the Goddess of today.

This panoramic view of Goddess imagery extends from the prehistoric Goddess representations of Catal Huyuk, Malta, Avebury, and Crete, tot he more patriarchal images of the Sumerians, Greeks, and Christians, to the wide range of contemporary artists inspired by the Goddess, including Frida Kahlo, Mayumi Oda, and Judy Chicago.

"An important, scholarly contribution to the study of religion and the history of women. I celebrate the publication." -- -- Susan Griffin, author of Women & Nature and Pornography & Science

"Important and delightfully readable...Points the way to the reassessment and reconstitution of the bases of human relations. A seminally fascinating book." -- Ashley Montagu

"An important, scholarly contribution to the study of religion and the history of women. I celebrate the publication." -- Susan Griffin, author of Women & Nature and Pornography & Science

"Does the Goddess have a place not only in our past but in our future? In this venturesome and persuasively argued book, Elinor Gadon answers this question with a ringing affirmative...This is a volatile and controversial book that will evoke widespread criticism and acclaim. I commend it to readers, not only specialist, but anyone who is interested in the health and well-being of our psyches and of our planet." -- Harvey Cox, Thomas Professor of Divinity, The Divinity School, Harvard University
