In this beautifully illustrated study of sculpture, vases, and other cult objects portraying the Goddess, fertility images, and mythical animals, Marija Gimbutas sketches the matrilineal village culture that existed in southeastern Europe between 6500 and 3500 B.C., before it was overwhelmed by the patriarchal Indo-Europeans. The analysis of this rich mythical imagery tells us much about early humanity's concepts of the cosmos, of humans' relations with nature, and of the complementary roles of male and female.

What came before the king the knight and the peasant? 22. Februar 2009
Von mike gurski - Veröffentlicht auf
For those who have not begun the journey through the numerous works of the late Dr. Gimbutas, this early analysis is as good a place as any to start. Her painstaking research, archealogical digs and discoveries, not to mention controversial conclusions of the matriarchal culture that thrived prior to the repeated waves of the Indo-European incursions through Old Europe, are a breath of fresh air into the mythos of the Great Mother. Be warned though, Gimbutas' work can be captivating and like me you could find yourself reading through all her successive works. For the archealogical traveller, Gimbutas' also opens up an itinerary worth following to see for oneself, the various 'finds' from her digs. For those looking for a broader guide to the myth of the Goddess, explore The Myth of the Goddess, Evolution of an Image by Anne Baring and Jules Cashford. However, for the experience of direct discovery and articulate analyis, plus a solid repetoire of images, figures and maps to stimulate the left brain Gimbutas sets the standard. My only regret is that I did not discover her work sooner and if I had would have made the effort to meet her in person.

More pictures 6. Januar 2013

This book is loaded with images not found in Gimbutas' later works, so if images are your interest, it's valuable.

I have some issues with the writing and the thoughts expounded, more so than what is usually brought up around her work in general. This book was written in the 70's and reflects what are now outdated idioms and platitudes. I don't have a problem overlooking that though. She did a massive service to our culture and the lost ones by methodically unearthing and documenting so much material.

Fascinating history 31. Dezember 2011

This book provided some excellent information for a presentation I made recently on the history of butterflies as a timeless subject of the visual arts. The book is well-written, scholarly, and packed with references. Now I'm reading the rest of the book!

Well Documented 21. September 2013

The author does a fine job of presenting the Goddess worship and lifestyle of the matriarchal society of pre-Indo-European or Old Europe.
Acknowledging a lost heritage 23. April 2014

We have forgotten so much of who we are.
Marija Gimbutas, through her careful and thorough archeology/anthropology has unearthed an essential element of human history. "The Goddess and Gods of Old Europe" reveals an egalitarian, peaceful and probably Matristic heritage that we all should remember and treasure. I am grateful for her work and continue to learn from it.
