The Myth of the Goddess

by: Anne Baring, Jules Cashford (1993)

The Myth of the Goddess: Evolution of an image, is a comprehensive, scholarly and accessible study, in which the authors draw upon poetry and mythology, art and literature, archaeology and psychology to show how the myth of the goddess has been lost from our formal Judeo-Christian images of the divine. They explain what happened to the goddess, when, and how she was excluded from western culture, and the implications of this loss


Anne Baring (b. 1931) MA Oxon. is a Jungian analyst

— author and co-author of seven books including, with Jules Cashford (1992), The Myth of the Goddess: Evolution of an Image. Her most recent book — Soul Power — written with Dr. Scilla Elworthy — offers an agenda for a conscious humanity. Her work is devoted to the recognition that we live in an ensouled world and to the restoration of the lost sense of communion between us and the invisible dimension of the Cosmos that is the source or ground of all that we call ‘life’. Her website is devoted to the affirmation of a new vision of reality and the issues facing us at this crucial time of choice.
