By Merlin Stone
Many ancient religions worshipped female gods. This book explores the transformation that took place from matriarchal religions to the modern patriarchal type.
When God Was A Woman Details
Many ancient cultures in the Near and Middle East based their religions on the matriarchy before the influence of Judeo-Christianity replaced those matriarchal goddesses with a single male god. This book would be a great read for any person interested in religious history, gender, and their intersection throughout history. Included with the text are pictures of ancient art and sculptures to provide visual evidence of the trend towards patriarchal religions.
