Maternità e Politeismi – Motherhood(s) and Polytheisms
Pàtron, Bologne, 2017
This book will be of interest to scholars and students in the study of religions, gender and women’s studies, archaeology, anthropology, classical studies, South Asian studies, and other related disciplines. This trilingual volume (Italian, English, French) is the result of a multidisciplinary and international collaboration between 31 scholars. Original scholarship featured in this edited volume contributes to a better understanding of the constructions and structures of polytheistic systems through a focused perspective on motherhood. Complex, surprising, and often fascinating trends emerge from the contributions selected by the editors with the intent of offering new lines of research and innovative perspectives on both polytheism and motherhood.
