Cygnus Star Titles
by: Lynn Pinknett and Clive Prince
Exploring the religious history of the ancient Middle East, Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince uncover the veneration of goddesses and female prophets among the ancient Jews and early Christians, as well as how the wisdom of the divine feminine was systematically rejected by the authors of both the Old and New Testaments. Moving from the early cults of Yahweh’s wife Asherah to the figures of Sophia, St. Mary and Mary Magdalene as Christian goddesses and priestesses, this is a book that will completely change your perception of the biblical stories and western history in general. If you always felt like there was a feminine element missing within the Abrahamic religions, this book will show how that came to be.
