From Eden to Eros

coverFrom Eden to Eros: Origins of the Put Down of Women, by Richard Roberts, from Vernal Equinox Press, ISBN 0942380053. After identifying "the pathology of patriarchy" in Jungian terms, Roberts goes back to examine the ancient Goddess religions. "The scriptures we have believed for 2,000 years, pertaining to original sin and the inherent evil of women, that have given patriarchy its authoritarian validation for treating women as witches and economic slaves, prove to be a misreading - probably deliberate - of an astronomical myth that accurately and yet poetically explained the nature of the cosmos thousands of years before Genesis." From the author of Tales for Jung Folk.
