Priestess and oracles were abolished.

Since the criticism claims ‘we don’t know for sure about the past’, then one possibility of the past could be a more egalitarian society, which the graves seem to indicate. Until reading this book, I czliz the arguments that early human cultures were peaceful egalitarian Goddess worshipers was about as strong as the arguments that early human beings were brutish war-mongering death-worshipers. They are gravely mistaken. You’ll have some fun with this. When Morgan and Eisler wrote, however, much more work had been done and little evidence accumulated to support the hypothesis of an archaic social paradise.

What happened to the goddesses of long ago?

Morgan’s Descent of Women, but, like Morgan’s, without the excuse of ignorance. To hear about the research and archaeological work on these sites, the fact that they had paved roads, irrigation systems, drainage systems, and probably lived in better and cleaner cities than some people in third and fourth world countries today can boast of, eight thousand years before the birth of Christ was absolutely stunning to read about.

Violent kings were not worshiped. These cultures showed a surprising equality between the sexes, as well as a lack of hierarchy. By the time that Sumer was in full swing, the partnership model had been overcome by the warrior culture of the nomadic steppes. When the Earth was bountiful. I’ve seen copies around for years but never read it. Many people have examined the problems of humanity as an inevitable outcome of our innate aggression and territoriality.

The Chalice and the Blade: Our History, Our Future (Updated With a New Epilogue)

Her ideas about a gylanic society based on linking rather than ranking are excellent and should be pursued. In fact, some sites were occupied for thousands of years without any evidence of war. Sep 17, Laura rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: The first half is in large part a summary and popularizing of the work of archaeologist Marija Gimbutas, who argues that before the spread of Indo-European civilization there existed a Three stars because it was a pretty interesting read, and she covers, well, all of human history.

But of course Adocracy prevailed in the end.

This author is not anti-religion, just anti-hate. I think that true egalitarianism is more likely to be achieved by making our concepts of sex and gender less rigid, more fluid, and more varied, rather than dividing humanity into two halves and constantly trying to either make both halves stay on the correct side, or to persuade one half that they’re not good enough because they’re not like the other.

The book is very well written and researched. Here are the builders, the naturalists, the artisans, the caretakers; those who choose to spend less energy on ranking and more on linking eiler disparate forces they happen across. It’s indeed time to get away from the masculine-feminine, black-white, ally-enemy thinking towards something completely different.

One is the dominator model in which all resources, powers and intent are directed toward progress through suppression. Furthermore, many of the figurines are of indeterminate gender. It is quite convincing that that early European human cultures were indeed more egalitarian and less war-like than the version of early human history that I learned in school.

Unfortunately, the hope filled vision she has for the future- really like the Star Trek, isn’t it? We have the technology to feed, clothe, and house people, but as long as we surrender to the dominator model, resources will continue to be concentrated in the hands of the few while the many suffer from need and lack.


There was a male consort who co -ruled with her. How do we learn such amazing things and then “forget” them for centuries on end? The Acheans adopted thee ways of the people they conquered. Read it for the first three quarters if nothing else.

Throughout the book she uses anecdotes and her own reasoning, as opposed to actual evidence, to support her theory that for thousands of years these female dominated societies ruled the world and everything was peachy.

See 1 question about The Chalice and the Blade…. Apparently, the author and the publisher thought that this page work of prevaricated, atrociously researched swill was sisler. So I recommend it based on the holes it punches in many of our most taken for granted beliefs on historic and prehistoric mankind, but don’t put too much weight on its own conclusions. It helped me to connect and make sense of all the stories and myths I had read about from other religions.

Aug 13, Annette rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is asserted in light of the revelation that an overwhelming assortment caluz female-figurine artifacts comprises rianr inventory of European archeological finds. Eisler calls these cultures “dominator cultures”, whereas the earlier Goddess worshiping groups engaged in a partnership model. Lots of excellent surprises and twists to how male-centered interpretation distorted a lot of the evidence, eo. Sure, it’s frombut if we take a longer view, it’s not that old.
