Product description

From the Back Cover

This classic exploration of the Goddess through time and throughout the world draws on religious, cultural, and archaeological sources to recreate the Goddess religion that is humanity's heritage. Now, with a new introduction and full-colour artwork, this passionate and important text shows even more clearly that the religion of the Goddess – which is tires to the cycles of the women's bodies, the seasons, the phrases of the moon, and the fertility of the earth – was the original religion of all humanity.

Monica Sjöö is well known in Europe as the foremost artist and theoretician of the re-emerging Goddess religion. Forty-four of her own works illustrate this volume.
Barbara Mor is an American poet and former poetry consultant for "Woman Spirit" magazine. Her writings include 'Mother Tongue' and 'Winter Ditch and Other Poems'

"This is an abundant and powerfull book that . . . presents a vivid picture of the tragic consequences caused by the savage priests of savage patriarchy. It forcefully shows that the matristic religion, which lasted many millennia before the partriachy, provides an indispensable key to an understanding of the human experience. 'The Great Cosmic Mother' . . . will reach the hearts and minds of many readers."
MARIJA GIMBUTAS, professor emerita of archaeology at U.C.L.A. and author of ' The Language of the Goddess' and ' The Civilization of the Goddess'

"A work that both inflames and inspires . . . a profound influence in modern feminist thought."
BARBERA G. WALKER, author of 'Women's Encyclopaedia of Myths and Secrets'

"A substantial and important contribution to feminist scholarship and theory – and a fascinating work to read, as well"
ROBIN MORGAN

"In a voice that is both passionate and poetic. ['The Great Cosmic Mother'] tells us of an earlier time when our Great Mother was still worshipped, a time we need to understand if we are to create a better future."
RIANE EISLER, author of 'The Chalice and the Blade'
