In this provocative and arresting book, Nanno Marinatos explores the role of the naked goddess and mistress of animals in Greek religion. She examines their eastern origins and discusses their dissemination throughout the mainland and Crete. She also analyses their function as magical devices which ward off evil and questions why a female god was the protectress of men rather than women.
