Sheela-na-gigs and Apocryphal Saints
a visual presentation by Max Dashu
Sheila-na-gigs from many countries. Survivals of Fortuna in medieval art. Threefold saints, like the Three Bethen. Apocryphal saints of female liberation: Wilgefortis, Kummernis, Ontcommer, Débarras, Liberata or Livrade. Paraskeva Piatnitsa in Slavic Orthodoxy, and various Balkan saints and rites. Plus a bit on corn dollies and Goddess-oriented harvest customs.
