Seeking out the presence of the Goddess from pre-Christian spirituality to the present day, this book draws mainly on sources from within the Western tradition. Caitlin Matthews reveals the many images of the Goddess as the Saviour Goddess, the Gnostic Sophia, World Soul, apocalyptic Virgin and many others. In doing so she shows how the foundation mysteries of the Goddess underlie the esoteric streams of orthodox religions and traces her hermetic presence in Qabala and alchemy. In conclusion, the author tracks her appearance in the realms of Goddess religion, feminist theology and the New Age.
