Présentation de l'éditeur

Joseph Campbell brought mythology to mass audiences, most notably in his conversations with Bill Moyers on PBS. In print and on television, his accessible and conversational tone riveted without dumbing down. His best-selling books, including The Power of Myth and Hero with a Thousand Faces are the rare blockbusters (well over a million copies sold) that are also scholarly classics. While Campbell covered the mythological waterfront, he never focused a work on the Goddess. This, however, does not mean he didn t have fresh and exciting things to say. In this provocative volume, he traces the evolution of the Feminine Divine from one Great Goddess to many, from Neolithic Old Europe to the Renaissance. He sheds new light on classical motifs and recognizes what is resonant in our day: that the challenge is to flower as individuals, neither as biological archetypes, nor as personalities imitative of the male.

HASH(0x94807420) étoiles sur 5 In Search of the Feminine Divine 26 avril 2014
Par Lauri Lumby - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Being raised Catholic, with the “old man in the sky God;” presided over by an exclusively male priesthood; I often felt as if something was missing. How could the God of unconditional love only be male and only choose men to lead “HIS” Church? If God loves us without condition and if we are indeed “made in the image and likeness of God, where was the God in whose image I was made? Furthermore, wouldn’t women, then be equally worthy to lead God’s Church? While the veneration of Mary somewhat satisfied these longings, she still wasn’t God. These questions eventually led me on the search for a feminine image of God that I could call my own, and one that I intuitively knew could be found.

Gratefully, I was not the only one troubled by the exclusively male God of the Western religious traditions and have found much comfort in the research that has been accomplished in uncovering the abundant examples of the Feminine Divine in cultures and religions across epochs, including Her presence in the Judeo-Christian tradition.

In, Goddesses – Mysteries of the Feminine Divine, by Joseph Campbell, I have found another worthy resource in my on-going exploration of the Feminine Divine. Whereas some of the conclusions Campbell presents have since been refuted, this collection provides a worthy addition to the study of the Feminine Divine, and unlike many books written on this topic, Campbell presents this topic in a way that is accessible to anyone.

In this collection of previously unpublished lectures given to lay audiences in the 1980’s, the reader will get an overview of the research contemporary to the time. Campbell reveals a rich tradition of the Feminine Divine, along with a contemporary challenge to set aside our exclusively male gods with their resulting hierarchies and patriarchies and make room for the Feminine. Balancing the masculine and the feminine, Campbell argues, may be the remedy to the disease of power and control that currently plagues our world, proving once again, the prophetic vision of Joseph Campbell.

If you are a fan of Joseph Campbell or interested in the Feminine Divine, I highly recommend this book.

HASH(0x94807474) étoiles sur 5 not much that's new 10 janvier 2014

If you love Campbell and have read a lot of him you might find that this has all been covered and covered well in other books. If you are new both to Campbell and the history of the Goddess it's a light introduction particularly to the time when the Goddess was being overthrown by indo European invaders - especially in Greece. Of course that's very sad but it is part of our history and no one tells it better than Campbell with his relaxed conversational style.

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love all of Joseph Campbell's works but this book is so clearly feminine that it brings home for me the power of the Goddess and the possibility, clearly, of creating goddess and recognizing goddess within myself. Love!

HASH(0x94807648) étoiles sur 5 Path of the Goddess 18 janvier 2015
Par S. Cranow - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Joseph Campbell is a well known scholar of mythology who has taught a number if years at the University level and has authored numerous books. His material is gold  as far as I am concerned . AT the same time as being scholarly his style is also highly readable and enjoyable. Read this and you will get lots of information. Beware though because this book may well change your perspective on things.

Change it did. Many scholars such as Margaret Murray and Marija Gambutas have stated that in man kinds beginning there was a whorl wide religion that revered the Goddess. Now perhaps that was an overstatement but there were places that venerated the Goddess. Three such areas were identified  South Eastern Europe plus Greece and Mesopatamia, South East Asia and part of Central AMerica. THese three areas had mastered agriculture and planting. THe societies tended to be settled into communities and there was at the time no threat of invasion or violence. THe Goddesses reign lasted from the Paleolithic to Neolithic times.

The Earth was seen as the mother. From her came all life and at the end all life returned to her. You did not have to be awesome to pick some fruit. Women were cultivators, admired for their beauty. Men were idolized based on how they performed their tasks. In the houses one would find figurines or Venus statues, These could be goddess statues or fertility votives. Men had their rituals in underground caves which were highly representative of the Goddesses womb. The sun was a feminine sign as was the lion and the cat and the snake. The sun radiated on the earth and represented freedom from time and space. Lions were royalty and serpents represented wisdom and life force.

For the male representation it was the bull. The bull was lunar. It's horns represented  the crescent of the moon. The male figure was the child of the goddess who grew into her lover and then dies only tobe born again much like the moon.

During the Iron age when the feminine world was being invaded by Indo Europeans in the north and Bedouin tribes from the south things began to change. The Indo- Europeans were semit nomadic warrior who cultivated livestock mostly cows. THe Bedouin cultivated sheep and goats. As was tendency once these warrior tribes took over the feminine lands they did not eradicate the goddess but rather had there moveable gods move and and marry them. Of  course this would change the whole mythology 

Joseph Campbell covers these ideas and their evolution by going over Hindu Culture, heavy emphasis on Greco=Roman myth and Middle Eastern Mythology.  Carefully showing how three once powerful Goddess was reduced to a subordinate undeeer the ancient paganism to how she was merely venerated under monotheism. But you cannot keep a good woman down. SHe rises up during the romantic period of courtly love and she is making her voice heard again. This book is a must read

This collection from Campbell's lectures and notes focuses on the role of the feminine in nurturing and transforming; it supplements the scattered references throughout his work.
