This panoramic view of Goddess imagery extends from the prehistoric Goddess representations of Catal Huyuk, Malta, Avebury, and Crete, tot he more patriarchal images of the Sumerians, Greeks, and Christians, to the wide range of contemporary artists inspired by the Goddess, including Frida Kahlo, Mayumi Oda, and Judy Chicago.

This one of my favorite Goddess books because it comes not only from a feminist view point, but a cultural anthropology point of view too. It describes and documents, with words and a good amount of black and white as well as several color photos, the 30,000 YEAR reign of the Goddess and her consort, and Her many forms throughout all of humanity - until Her people's agricultural lifestyle was destroyed by warrior societies looking for more to conquer and add to their wealth. "The Once & Future Goddess" tells the story of how women came to be oppressed in just the last 3,000 to 4,000 years by the dogma of the nomadic Jewish tribes, the political control of the Romans, and the re-interpretation of the teaching of the man commonly called Jesus by his disciple Paul, leading to the creation of Christianity and Judaism as we know them today in their myriad flavors. All of them calling the first woman a sinner and traitor. This book gives a woman, or women, the sense that history is also her story...for 30,000 years of archaelogical evidence doesn't lie! Women were once not percieved as evil or disgusting in any way, and were treated as equal or superior to men. The women of the fertile crescent area created fine art, mathematics, weavings, food, agriculture, theatre, music, and more, all the while sustaining a generally peaceful lifestyle with their neighbors. A definite must have book for anyone committed to the search for Truth.

This is a fantastic book, if you are looking for a history textbook from a Goddess perspective this is it. It's the history of the hidden story the mainstream education doesn't talk about. A must for any library.

It is a very interesting book dealing with things to make ourselves truly believe that we are each capable of great things. It gives the history of the Goddesses through time and how they were worshiped and honored. It teaches us that the Goddess is a part of all of us and we should be be energized and take to heart all the teachings and gifts she brings us.

This book is a pleasure to read - so well written and informative, lots of photos and diagrams of the Goddess artworks and temples. It flows and informs in a harmonious, delightful and scholarly format. Truly a work of a goddess.

The Once and Future Goddess is still one of the Big Five every woman should have read and should own. It is a huge compendium of women's art through history, and ought to be required reading in every class on women's herstory and art history in the world. What Barbara Mor and Monica Sjoo do with words in The Great Cosmic Mother is similar to what Elinor Gadon does with art in The Once and Future Goddess.They are both "ovarian" works of great brilliance reflecting a deep love of women and how we have understood and expressed ourselves,

gorgeous! She sees with the eyes of the Goddess and brings Her close to the reader.

Not even done reading this book, but really, really enjoying it. Love the historical perspective and the human factor in the way information is presented. Well written, I think used for a text book, reads smoothly so you want to come back again and again.
This is an amazing book. It is an extensive collection of the Goddess in history and prehistory. It reads a bit like a textbook, but the information is good.
