Reviews

"This is a valuable piece of original research, one which makes a considerable contribution to an understanding of the obscure origins of the role women play in the Genesis narratives."
- Raphael Patai, author of The Jewish Mind and The Arab Mind
"First we had Merlin Stone's When God Was a Woman and now we have Savina Teubal's Sarah the Priestess. Teubal re-examines our Biblical foremothers in light of the cultural context from which they came, the ancient Mesopotamian art work, tablets, codification and legends. In her fresh, far-reaching, controversial and playful study, Teubal has altered our vision, explained mysterious references, and has produced an enormously important work."
- E. M. Broner, author of Her Mothers and A Weave of Women
"This is one of the most original and stimulating studies of patriarchal religion and traditions that has been presented to the scholarly and general public in our time. The central idea is so startling that most readers are likely to dismiss it as sheer speculation. However, the book requires the most careful and serious reading and will repay those who invest the time and effort manyfold."
- David Noel Freedman, director, Studies in Religion, University of Michigan
