As Before ... Same as Today

Goddess veneration works to restore a balance that Tate writes existed thousands of years ago. "In the beginning, God was a woman, and from her womb she created all that is; thus she is all things and all things are her. That was true 30,000 years ago, and for millions it is still true today," she writes in her book. Sacred Places of Goddess starts in Europe and Asia Minor and moves through the world to the Americas. Tate chose sites based on their historical, spiritual and cultural significance or for their physical richness. The book is a user-friendly guide that provides background information on a site's ancient or new importance. Some sections have warnings about deterioration at some sites; these are called "Gaia alerts," after the Greek goddess personifying Earth. Some associations are expected, Cyprus with Aphrodite, the Parthenon with Athena and Egypt with Isis. Others are sites where Christianity, Judaism or Islam has long overtaken pagan worship and the divine feminine has been absorbed or supplanted by those traditions." --Los Angeles Times

new view on an ancient rite

This book is not the usual archaeology offering on the subject. It is a combination of that and a travel guide as well -- so you not only learn the historic and mythological background on the various ancient sites, but are supplied with current information on how to get there. The coverage is impressive. Karen even briefly mentions the ruined shrine of Astarte in Lebanon which is the ancient source of the pre-Christian (Canaanite) Holy Grail legend according to anthropologist Jessee Weston...forgotten by the New Pagans of America and Europe. Hopefully Karen's book will go through several updates....and continue to be carried along on sacred grand tours for years to come."--Poke Runyon, Producer of Rites of Magick, Author, Founder of Ordo Templi Astartes

Mother Nature mainstream?

We keep hearing that Paganism is going mainstream as regular people show increasing concern for Mother Nature. SP of Goddess is an example of this mainstreaming. It's on the travel shelves, which means that ordinary travelers can pick it up and be inspired to travel to sites that commemorate the Goddess. Before you book your next flight, consult this book! You'll be glad you did." Barbara Ardinger, Sagewoman Magazine

I consider it very helpful for my own research in Italy, France, and Spain and I'll put this book on my reading list for my Fall course at CIIS."
