Summary
  • Responding to a growing interest in fierce feminine archetypes and syncretic religions, Malgorzata Oleszkiewicz-Peralba offers a study of the origin and worship of four feminine deities across cultures and continents: the Slavic Baba Yaga, the Hindu goddess Kali, the Brazilian Pombagira, and the Mexican Santa Muerte
  • "A scholarly classic in the new paradigm of truth-telling and genuine democracy that includes everybody and their beliefs - from academia to politics!" Lucia Chiavola Birnbaum, Professor Emerita, California Institute of Integral Studies, USA and author of Black Madonnas: Feminism, Religion and Politics in Italy and The Future has an Ancient Heart: Legacy of Caring, Sharing, Healing, and Vision from the Primordial African Mediterranean to Occupy Everywhere "In what is truly a cross-cultural and transdisciplinary perspective, Oleszkiewicz-Peralba examines four female divinities from all over the globe who personify not only fierceness, but occupy shadow worlds where spiritual power, wildness, sexuality, rage, blood, and death coexist. Lavishly and informatively illustrated (the photo of the Lowrider trunk altar to Santa Muerte is alone worth the price of admission), Oleszkiewicz-Peralba's study of fierce deities combines the rigor of a true scholar with the sass, wit, and charm of Pombagira" - Alan West-Duran, Northeastern University, USA and editor-in-chief of Cuba (two volumes), and author of Afro-Caribbeans and Tropics of History
