The language of the goddess : unearthing the hidden symbols of western civilization by Marija Gimbutas ( Book )

The goddesses and gods of Old Europe, 6500-3500 BC, myths and cult images by Marija Gimbutas ( Book )
39 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Uropean civilization between 6500 and 3500 BC - long before Greek or Judaeo-Christian civilizations flourished - was not a provincial reflection of neighboring Near Eastern cultures but a distinct culture with its own unique identity. The mythical imagery of this matrilinear era tells us much about early humanity's concepts of the cosmos, of human relations with nature, of the complementary roles of male and female. Through study of sculpture, vases, and other cult objects from southeastern Europe, Gimbutas sketches the village culture that evolved there before it was overwhelmed by the patriarchal Indo-Euopreans. The Goddess incarnating the creative principle as a Source and Giver of All, fertility images, mythical animals, and other artifacts are anlyzed for their mythic and social significance in this beautifully illustrated study."--Googlebooks

The living goddesses by Marija Gimbutas ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Living Goddesses crowns a lifetime of innovative, influential work by one of the twentieth century's most remarkable scholars. Marija Gimbutas wrote and taught with rare clarity her original - and originally shocking - interpretation of prehistoric European civilization. Gimbutas flew in the face of contemporary archaeology when she reconstructed through her tireless research in the field and in local texts and mythologies goddess-centered cultures that predated historic patriarchal cultures by many thousands of years." "This volume which was close to completion at the time of her death, contains the distillation of Gimbutas studies combining the memorable findings of her earlier work with new discoveries, insights, and analysis."--Jacket

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Born in Lithuania, Marija Gimbutas was a national heroine even before her death in 1994. A classically trained archaeologist, Dr. Gimbutas was also a linguist, mythologist and folklorist who possessed the vision of an artist and the broad understanding of a philosopher. Widely respected as a world-class expert on Baltic and Slavic prehistory and the Indo-European Bronze Age, she devoted the last thirty years of her life to exploring and interpreting the earlier Neolithic cultures of Europe. Her discovery of a goddess-based, matrilineal society that preceded the patriarchal Indo-European culture has been widely recognized as ground-breaking, initiating a new perception of European prehistory that challenges traditional assumptions about the origins of Western civilization. In this splendid collection, an international group of scholars, artists and writers articulate their deep respect for Marija Gimbutas as they acknowledge the contributions she has made to their own work
