The Goddess Veiled
a visual presentation by Max Dashu

forms of Goddess in disguise

How reverence for the female Divine survived theological coups, iconoclast destruction of her images and patriarchal regimes in Europe, and colonial regimes in other parts of the world. Goddess disguised as apocryphal saints, faeries, and Sophia, Black Madonnas and Sara la Kali. Eve and the Serpent Goddess, Mother Earth suckling snakes, who becomes Luxuria in the churches. Mermaids, harpies, and sheila-na-gigs. Alchemical and other allegorical goddesses.
