Neith: Virgin Mother of the World
I would also like to draw your attention to my article excerpting Virgin Mother Goddesses of Antiquity
by Dr. Marguerite Rigoglioso. In my estimation Dr. Rigoglioso has done what needs to be done by dozens if not hundreds of academics with each major issue and many minor ones that I raise in my books. If one can do an entire, remarkable study of the Virgin Birth alone, one can do them with each of these fascinating subjects.
The pre-Christian divine birth and virgin mother motifs have been established through the archaeological and literary record, a fact proved, I opine, by the works of Dr. Rigoglioso. They possess multifold meanings, which have likewise been explored by Marguerite and other scholars. As a nature lover, to me the most fascinating and deepest meaning is that which reflects the observations of the natural world, nature worship and astrotheology, such as the story of the inviolable and virgin dawn giving birth to the sun.

Like many academic publications, these books are very expensive - I'd like to do a paperback edition, replete with images as I did with Barbara Walker's book
, and make them more available to the public. However, they are
scholarly; so, many people will never make the effort to dig through them. But that's what they have me for! To me, digging through all this evidence and well-expressed theory is like eating peanuts - or pistachios, as the case may be.
