The Rotting Goddess" continues in this vein to explore Hecate as an example of the treatment of the Goddess in the civilizations of classical antiquity. Parallell to the ancient debasement of the Goddess is the emergence of the Witch-her priestess. While Rabinowitz' writing can be challenging, as all classical scholarship is; the book is well worth navigating for its compassionate treatment of an abused Goddess. The book is a worthy addition to contemporary explorations of the ancient Goddess religions. 19 people found this helpful.

I bought this book for a project I was doing for school. Unfortunatly this book had nothing to do with that subject. It although was an very interesting read. It was a bit much at times but I find that every thing that lasts through time is. The time that must have been put in the little book must have been great. But I would not recomend this for any one truly wanting to learn of the goddess. This book was a study of the declime of women in a male dominate society, using the Goddess Hecete as an example of this.

Books such as When God was a Woman" by Merlin Stone or "The Language of the Goddess" by Marija Gimbutas reframe the role and signifigance of the Goddess in the evolution of religion. "The Rotting Goddess" continues in this vein to explore Hecate as an example of the treatment of the Goddess in the civilizations of classical antiquity. Parallell to the ancient debasement of the Goddess is the emergence of the Witch--her priestess. While Rabinowitz' writing can be challenging, as all classical scholarship is; the book is well worth navigating for its compassionate treatment of an abused Goddess. The book is a worthy addition to contemporary explorations of the ancient Goddess religions.

Rabinowitz's book is not merely silly, it is pretentious as well. His conclusions are specious at best, when they are not actually fanciful. All of this is presented in prose of Saharan dryness. Classical scholars might find this text a useful example of how not to reason and research. The pagan woo-woo set,who will read anything endorsing their views, will be defeated by the short text's sheer turgidity.
