Starts July 16–see details below
Spiritual Heritages of Ancient Europe, with Max Dashu
We retrace the spiritual heritages of ancient Europe: goddess reverence, sacred dance, chant, and female rituals; women as seers, healers, and priestessses. We also track an interwoven strand: patriarchy and the demotion and repression of women’s power. This first course centers on ancient southern and western Europe, surveying archaeology, the written record, legal codes, art, linguistic evidence, and folklore.
Sources will include web lectures, ldiscussions (live and posted) and excerpts from Max’s forthcoming book, The Secret History of the Witches.
