Description

Explores the possible religious beliefs and the legends of the Amazons as well as the goddess cults of ancient Greece and Asia Minor. The author describes in great detail what is known about ancient goddess worship through primary documents. She describes many details that are taken for granted today, such as the double axe symbol, and some aspects that are not so well understood. For instance, some of the male deities of later classical Greek religion turn out to originally be of ambiguous gender. And Aphrodite, who in later mythology is a love goddess, was originally a war goddess. Extensive footnotes.

This book has 66 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1912.
