Edited by Safron Rossi, PhD, executive director of the Opus Archives and Research Center, Goddesses shows how Campbell traced the blossoming from one Great Goddess to the many goddesses of the mythic imagination. The book follows the feminine divine from Neolithic Old Europe into Sumerian and Egyptian mythology, through Homer’s epic Odyssey, the Greek Eleusinian Mystery cult, Arthurian legends of the Middle Ages, and into the Neoplatonic Renaissance.
