About this title


Does the mention of a sun deity make you think of Apollo? Perhaps you should envision a female divinity instead! Unlike the Greeks, many Indo-European peoples probably believed a goddess ruled our bright, blazing star. So, dispense with the stereotypes of mainstream culture and set out on a journey of discovery to bring this long-forgotten idol into focus. Through etymology, mythology, and religion, a compelling argument emerges for seeing the sun in feminine terms. Norse, Baltic, Celtic, and Hittite legends, goddesses named Sol and Saule, plus pictures of a variety of artifacts, lend weight to this eye-opening thesis.

Store Description

Shadow Books sells all manner of second-hand, out of print and rare books; but not popular paperback fiction. If we have a speciality, it is a broad academic one embracing the humanities fields of history, politics, classic literature, art history, media, history of ideas. We pride ourselves on setting our prices - quality for quality - at the low end of the range, on the scrupulous way we describe our books, on the rapidity with which we dispatch orders, and on our prompt and friendly response to customers and their queries.
