To highlight one of the expert contributors to this encyclopedia, from the Ancient Religions section, Viviane Crowley writes on an archetypal divine feminine in the form of Inanna: “Known as Sumer’s Mother Goddess and War Goddess, she was born from a volcano and symbolized the liminal barriers between life and death, earth and underworld” (Page 1:55).
