Synopsis: The Nine Maidens -- priestesses of the ancient Mother Goddess religion. For 25 years Stuart McHardy has been tracking the enigmatic Nine Maidens group to mountaintops and Dark Age citadels, artificial islands, and lonely wells. He has traced a network of pagan priestess groups across the Celtic, Germanic, romance, and Classical societies of Europe with striking evidence for fertility rites and possible sacrifice. In a non-traditional (i.e. non-militaristic, -aristocratic, and -male) interpretation of history using oral and informal written sources, McHardy demonstrates how the nine maidens lived on -- through the Christian era -- in ritual and belief.

About the Author: McHardy is a writer, musician, storyteller, folklorist, historian, linguist, and poet.
