Yes, Brina, I am reading a later edition of "Drawing Down the Moon," and she had made editions to her text that reflect recent scholarship.
And I'm not going going to discount books based on out-of-date scholarship alone. In fact, even though I assume it's drenched in the reference to stuff like Burning Times, I'm looking forward to reading Starhawk's "The Spiral Path." I've browsed it a few times at the bookstore and the prose reads quite beautifully.

I'm just curious if any writers have used the concept of a Goddess-focused spirituality that didn't depend on the aforementioned myths as facts, or draws inspirations from them as myths, and not as facts. And some respondees have posted some great recommendations and are now in my Amazon wishlist. But, as the article you posted attested, I also understand that this reconciliation is an ongoing process. Thank you for posting her article.

Oh, and I forgot, Moon Ivy. Since you mentioned you can recommend books on specific Goddesses, can you recommend any either focused on or has some good content about Brighid?

*falls out of chair laughing*

Oh what a perfect punchline for such a funny post Cheesy

I am puzzled by your post, Melamphoros. It kind of hurt me. Why treat someone you don't know, or any human being for that matter, with such derision? I believe one can disagree without laughing and hurtful sarcasm.

But nonetheless, I wish peace and blessings for you.
