Romancing the Goddess: Three Middle English Romances about Women
Arguing that the idea of woman cast adrift can be traced to an ancient Mediterranean legend connecting aspects of the Virgin Mary and Isis as "sea goddesses", Marijane Osborn introduces and translates three stories, all dealing with women cast adrift, then shows how the stories forge a hitherto missing link with worship of a savior goddess in the distant past. 14 photos.
