Sophia: Goddess of Wisdom, Bride of God
Theosophical Publishing House, 2001 - 430 Seiten
Anyone interested in the feminine face of God throughout the ages will find Sophia an illuminating experience. Caitlin Matthews' scholarship connects us to past, present, and future in the very depths of our femininity. - - Marion Woodman, Jungian analyst and author of Bone: Dying into Life. Sophia, or "wisdom" in Greek, has been revered in many forms throughout history - from the Dark Goddess of ancient Anatolia; to her Egyptian, Greek, Celtic, and Cabalistic manifestations; to her currentforms as Mary and the orthodox St. Sophia. In the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, Sophia sits with God until the creation. Then she falls into matter and becomes manifest in every atom, permeating all things "like the sparks that run through charcoal," as Matthews says. While God is "out there," the Goddess is "in here" - the mother-wit of practical inspiration and compassion at the heart's core. This definitive work comprehensively establishes a realistic Goddess theology for Westerners in the twenty-first century: grounding spirituality in daily life and the natural world; learning to work playfully and play seriously; ending the gender war to enjoy sacred marriage.

Review: Sophia: Goddess of Wisdom, Bride of GodNutzerbericht - Mariana - Goodreads
This book would have been a lot better if the author had included non western examples of Sophia, like Changing Woman, or the Brazilian Santa Barbara. The author said that doing this would make the book a lot longer. I hope some day some woman will write a more complete book on Sophia. Vollständige Rezension lesen
