By Ruth Rusca
An exploration of the repressed, esoteric female mysteries within the Bible throughout the lives of 4 ladies, all archetypes of the sacred prostitute
• exhibits how those 4 archetypal ladies signify the 4 phases of improvement of soul consciousness
• finds how the phobia of the ability of the sacred prostitute resulted in a rejection of girl sexuality and a harmful dualistic suggestion of fellows and women
• Explains how the dogma of the stainless belief represents the repression of the divine female in Christianity
In Feminine Mysteries within the Bible, Ruth Rusca unveils sacred mysteries of the female and the alchemical dating of the female and male forces on the middle of the Judeo-Christian culture. Drawing on over 30 years of analysis, she explores 4 archetypal girls within the Bible: Tamar, the sacred prostitute; Rahab, the meretrix; Ruth, who redeems the soul; and Bathsheba, the daughter of the Goddess. those women--sacred prostitutes one and all--represent the indestructible female lifestyles strength, the knowledge of the Goddess, and the transformative strength of the soul, they usually represent the 4 phases of the advance of soul realization.
Mary, mom of Jesus, is the quintessence of those 4 girls, yet Rusca indicates that the dogma of the stainless perception has repressed the importance of Mary and subverted the divine female in Christianity as a result of the church’s worry of ladies and their life-giving strength. those girls cross an imperishable female lifestyles strength from iteration to iteration, and knowing their lives creates a route to overcoming the damaging developments of dualistic “male-female” thinking--a duality that profanes female sexuality and mysteries instead of revering and celebrating them.
