    DescriptionForeign cults of female divinities were often accepted among different cultures and female cults were often reshaped after new models. The transcultural nature of many goddesses and the related problems are at the core of this book, which is dedicated to a prominent scholar in this field, G. Sfameni Gasparro. Social, political and cultural factors are especially taken into account in order to explain different iconographies, names, and kinds of worship which were adopted for goddesses in different areas and times. The multifaceted nature of many female cults is focussed thanks to different methodologies, according to the topics which are investigated.
