Product description

This important work provides a unique, single-volume reference to more than a thousand goddesses of the world. The book is also of enormous practical value in discovering and celebrating the transforming love of the Goddess. The Witches' Goddess falls into three main sections. Part I reveals the many faces of the Goddess: her presence throughout history, her Earth and Moon symbolism, her Madonna and Magdalene disguises, her revelation in Woman and her influence today. In Part II, the Farrars share detailed Craft rituals for involving the Goddess in thirteen of her many aspects from Ishtar to Isis, from dark Hecate to Aphrodite. Part III is an alphabetical listing of more than a thousand goddesses of the world, giving a brief history and the main correspondences for each. All three sections have helpful line drawings and diagrams in addition to the photographic illustrations accompanying the text. The Witches' Goddess is an invaluable contribution to the literature on the Goddess principle, written at a time when that principle is inspiring or disturbing Western thought more than it has for many centuries.
