I received a copy of this book for review, and it looked like a nice historical guide. See my review below.
Finally, something with Herstory! I enjoyed reading about women in history that we didn’t learn about in school. It is nice to know that women held positions of power throughout the ages, and how they helped shape and grow civilisations and cultures. This is a slim book, but it packs a lot in, so be prepared for a thorough Herstory lesson.
About the Book
The Temple Priestesses of Antiquity tells the story of the Oracles and Sibyls, Seers, Psychics, Sacred Dancers, and Healers of ancient civilizations. They were empowered women who enthralled those who sought their advice and served the Goddess they revered. Tales about ancient Priestesses and the Sacred Temples where they lived, prayed, and worked thousands of years ago, have fascinated archaeologists and historians for decades. Living in complex temple structures above ground and in underground cavernous tunnels, they shared vows of chastity and lived a dutiful and respected life. The Temple Priestesses of Antiquity is a story of these women, some well-known and others forgotten to the centuries.
