Artemis and Aphrodite Need Not Apply: Christianity’s Repression of The Archetypal Feminine Geniuses

January 20, 1989 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PST


This lecture will discuss the importance of the constellation of the feminine forms of divinity in our time and their importance in our chaotic world. References for this lecture are Whitmont’s Return of the Goddess and Bolen’s Goddesses in Every Woman. In this lecture I hope to show that the Catholic and Protestant complexes about and around Mary are, in essence, a problem of the patriarchal form of Christianity which fears the feminine dimension of religious experience.
