He aquí una invitación para descubrir un pasado enterrado por milenios de mitos judeocristianos y su correspondiente orden social. Merlin Stone nos cuenta la historia de la Diosa que, bajo el nombre de Astarté, Isis o Ishtar, reinó en Oriente Próximo. Fue reverenciada como la sabia creadora y fuente del orden universal, y no como mero símbolo de la fertilidad. Bajo los auspicios de la Diosa, los roles sociales eran sustancialmente diferentes a los establecidos por las culturas patriar- cales: las mujeres compraban y vendían propiedades, comerciaban y heredaban el apellido y la tierra de sus madres. Al documentar la reelaboración generalizada del mito y de los dogmas religiosos, Merlin Stone describe una antigua conspiración en la que la Diosa fue presentada como una figura licenciosa y depravada, una caracterización confirmada y perpetuada por una de las leyendas más conocidas de la cultura moderna: el mito de Adán y la pecadora Eva. Here is an invitation to discover a past buried by millennia of Judeo-Christian myths and their corresponding social order. Merlin Stone tells us the story of the Goddess who, under the name of Astarte, Isis or Ishtar, reigned in the Middle East. She was revered as the wise creator and source of universal order, and not as a mere symbol of fertility. Under the auspices of the Goddess, social roles were substantially different from those established by patriarchal cultures: women bought and sold property, traded, and inherited their mother's surname and land. Documenting the widespread reworking of myth and religious dogmas, Merlin Stone describes an ancient conspiracy in which the Goddess was portrayed as a licentious and depraved figure, a characterization confirmed and perpetuated by one of the best-known legends of modern culture: the myth of Adam and the sinful Eve.… (more)
