    3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
    "Contrary to the image of peaceful, maternal divine figures such as the Virgin Mary, there exists a gamut of fierce female divinities. Although distant geographically, these divine figures are surprisingly similar-representing concepts of liminality, outsiderhood, and structural inferiority, embodied in the divine feminine. These strong, independent, unrestrained figures are commonly and full of magical powers, including power over sexuality, transformation, and death. Małgorzata Oleszkiewicz-Peralba offers a study of the origin and worship of four feminine deities across cultures and continents: the Slavic Baba Yaga, the Hindu goddess Kālī, the Brazilian Pombagira, and the Mexican Santa Muerte. Responding to a growing interest in fierce feminine archetypes and syncretic religions, Oleszkiewicz-Peralba examines how sacred icons have been adapted and transformed across time and place"--
