Normal Lorre Goodrich has triumphed in this, the most formidable task she has yet demanded of herself

Normal Lorre Goodrich has triumphed in this, the most formidable task she has yet demanded of herself. The centuries-old battle waged by malevolent or ill-informed historians against heroic women and their matriarchal societies has denied these women their rightful places in history. Today, they have been restored to honor. Ms. Goodrich uses resources to their full extent.

Such a comprehensive analysis of the priestesses of various cults and different cultures. Goodrich also features relevant myths and illustrations. For anyone curious about what priestess life in the ancient world meant, this is the book to read.

I wish this book was back in print. It's a long and brilliant study of priestesses and other religious women from many countries/faiths over the past 6,000 years.

To explore the lives of priestesses, who were once glamorous women at the center of civilization, Norma Lorre Goodrich has collected evidence from innumerable sources around the world. Echoing her previous works on ancient and medieval myths, "Priestesses" recovers lost knowledge. Due in no small part to age-old fears of matriarchal societies, these once honored women -- Amazons, the Cumaean Sibyl of Rome, Druid priestesses, Vestal Virgins, Medusa, the Oracles at Delphi, queens reigning in Egypt, Turkey, Libya, and Syria -- have all been denigrated and dismissed, and stripped from the history texts.
Remembrance of these marvelous women draws on the work of such scholars of mythology as Sigmund Freud, Joseph Campbell, Robert Graves, and Sir James Frazer. Inquiry has led to a new study of ancient historians and classical scholars, which in turn has revealed the thousands of priestesses who lived throughout the ancient world, from Asia Minor to Ireland. They emerge in full glory once more -- queens, princesses, temple dancers, warriors, and religious who over the centuries had commanded the most sacred rites.
With more than one million copies of her books in print, and recent worldwide recognition for her discovery of King Arthur's castles. Normal Lorre Goodrich has triumphed in this, the most formidable task she has yet demanded of herself.
The centuries-old battle waged by malevolent or ill-informed historians against heroic women and their matriarchal societies has denied these women their rightful places in history. Today, they have been restored to honor.

I read something lately that made me remember this book, and looking back it really was one of those books that became internal to the way I thought about historical social castes from there on forward. While I cannot speak to the research Goodrich (no footnote and few sources doesn't help) as done, she certainly seems to have an insight into the spirit of the topic and the idea of the role in women in ancient religion.

A very good book on the women that Christianity hid from history for years. Much good information, interesting pictures, and an overall excellent effort by Ms. Goodrich. Brava!

Ms. Goodrich did an excellent job. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in womens studies, either a beginner or someone well versed in womens studies.
