We will revisit Sarah Pomeroy's account of women in GODDESSES, WHORES, WIVES, and SLAVES. 

We will begin moving into Robert Graves' world of THE WHITE GODDESS in which he uses his poetic intuition and early Dead Sea Scrolls and Gnostic Nag Hammadi text scholarship to recreate the context of goddess worship and it's destruction

which led to the rather debased state of women's lives we see in Pomeroy. 

The review of Goddess, Whores, Wives and Slaves requires no previous lecture attendance. 

All interested in ancient poetic tradition, feminism, or religion and culture in general are encouraged to attend.

About the presenter: Michael Rosenthal has completed extensive graduate work in theology, philosophy and psychology at the St. Paul Seminary and the University of Iowa and Western Illinois University.
