Description
The mother of Jesus has taken various forms in the Christian church throughout the centuries—the Blessed Virgin, the Queen of Heaven, the Madonna, the spiritual mother of all the faithful—yet Mary, as both chaste goddess and earth mother, has her origins in much older religions, in which the chief deities were female. A noted expert on Arthurian legend, Geoffrey Ashe here examines ancient myths, theology, history, literature, and feminine spirituality in the cult of Mary to throw new light on her role in today's Church—one only partly derived from the Gospels—and considers the forces behind the resubordination of Mary to Christ.
