Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations

Front Cover
CCC Publishing, 2005 - Religion - 425 pages
Uncovering the past through the lens of sacred travel, this travel book includes both academic and popular religious perspectives, and is filled with photographs of both famous and lesser-known locales from every corner of the world. Each site-specific explanation of the significance of Goddess today and in centuries past deftly combines current trends, academic theories, and historical insights. From the Middle East, to Europe, Africa, and the Americas, the images of feminine divinity presented in this work are as uniform in their beauty as they are diverse in cultural tradition. For each location-be it the shrines in Kyoto and Kamakura or the sites worshipping the Virgin Mary in Bolivia, France, Trinidad, and the Saut D'Eau Waterfalls of Haiti-this book provides a history of each site in conjunction with the photography.

I love this book. My only complaint is that the text layout is cramped and the binding was weak. Other than that the book is very well researched and illustrated. I find it insparational, and fantasize about a retirement trip that involves traveling the world to visit these amazing places. Read full review
