When God was a woman by Merlin Stone( Book )
33 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,031 libraries worldwide
Here, archeologically documented, is the story of the religion of the Goddess. Known by many names--Astarte, Isis, Ishtar, among others--she reigned supreme in the Near and Middle East. Beyond being worshiped for fertility, she was revered as the wise creator and the one source of universal order. Under her, women's roles differed markedly from those in patriarchal Judeo-Christian cultures. Women bought and sold property was passed from mother to daughter. How did the change come about? By documenting the wholesale rewriting of myth and religious dogmas, Merlin Stone details a most ancient conspiracy: the patriarchal re-imagining of the Goddess as a wanton, depraved figure. This is the portrait that laid the foundation for one of culture's greatest shams--the legend of Adam and fallen Eve

When God was a woman by Merlin Stone( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 1982 and 2006 in No Linguistic Content and English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
[This book] is an invitation to discover a past that has been buried by millenia of Judeo-Christian myth and corresponding social order. [The author] tells us ... the story of the Goddess who ... reigned supreme in the Near and Middle East. There she was revered as the wise creator and the one source of universal order, not simply as a fertility symbol as some histories would have us believe. And under the Goddess, societal roles differed markedly from those in patriarchal Judeo-Chrisitian cultures: women bought and sold property, traded in the marketplace, and inherited title and land from their mothers. -Back cover
