The Goddess Dictionary of Words and Phrases
The Goddess Dictionary of Words and Phrases: Introducing a New Core Vocabulary for the Women's Spirituality Movement, by award-winning author and historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, is an educational compendium of vital information regarding the universal deity known around the world for thousands of years as "Goddess." As such, this work focuses specifically on various androcentric or patriarchal terms, expressions, and maxims, from ancient to modern times.Colonel Seabrook has taken these and feminized (or emasculated) them, a process that has created a new core vocabulary of feministic Goddess-oriented words and phrases. Many of his inventions are what could rightfully be called "new old" words and phrases. That is, he has taken the God-based wording of our modern male-dominant vocabulary and simply returned it to its original prehistoric feminine form.After the Patriarchal Takeover (which began c. 4300 BCE), misogynistic priests masculinized them, suppressing the original feminine versions. The Goddess Dictionary of Words and Phrases allows these ancient silenced expressions, dedicated to the Great Mother (known in Syria as Mari, in Greece as Myrrha, in ancient Rome as Maria, in early Egypt as Meri, in Babylonia as Marratu, in Israel as Marah, in India as Kel-Mari, in Buddhism as Mara, in Scandinavia as Maerin, in the British Isles as Maid Marian, and in Christianity as Mary), to be brought back to life.Fascinatingly, the author covers the relationship between numerous biblical and Pagan doctrines as embedded in the context of ancient history. The Goddess Dictionary of Words and Phrases is an important reference book for anyone interested in thealogy (feminine spirituality), matriarchal and patriarchal language, and the prehistoric Matriarchate.Lochlainn Seabrook is the winner of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal, awarded by the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
