Yahweh and his Asherah: Part Two

As I discussed last week what we know about Canaanite mythology on the whole is murky at best. The very least we can assume of the goddess Asherah is, “that for at least some Israelites, Yahweh had a consort named Asherah” (Penchansky, 2005, p 80), regardless of whether Yahweh and Baal have swapped roles orContinue reading “Yahweh and his Asherah: Part Two”


Yahweh and his Asherah: Part One

This article has turned into a two-parter. Originally it was going to be a slightly longer post because once I got the ball rolling it was kind of hard to stop. I originally intended to only discuss the relationship between the Asherah and Yahweh of Canaanite mythology, yet I found once I began to writeContinue reading “Yahweh and his Asherah: Part One”

Canaanite Mythology

Little is known about Canaanite mythology compared to other ancient cultures. As far as I can tell there is little in the way of ancient literature that has survived, or been found. It’s great for the writer in me, little established lore means my creative license can be quite liberal, but annoying for the mythology addictContinue reading “Canaanite Mythology”

The Fall of Lucifer: Lord of Light to The Adversary

Fallen Angel. King of Demons. Lord of Hell. Satan. The Devil. How the mighty has fallen. Lucifer is many things to many people. From a symbol of rebellion to the idea of evil incarnate, few figures of mythology have such an immediate reaction in people as Lucifer. But is our idea of Lucifer accurate? ToContinue reading “The Fall of Lucifer: Lord of Light to The Adversary”

The Lilith Archetype

Lilith. The Dark Mother. Mother of Demons. I’ve written previously about the Lilith archetype in relation to the types of protagonists in Angel Lit and the Great Mother archetype. I feel like I’ve made a good case as to why Lilith is an important archetype, and why she’s important to young female readers. Today IContinue reading “The Lilith Archetype”

Book Review: All Souls Trilogy

Disclaimer: This was originally posted on my old website 10/09/19 Yesterday was crazy! I was away from my computer for most of the day so this post is later than usual, but as this post keeps getting delayed I really didn’t want to postpone it further. This week I’m reviewing the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness.Continue reading “Book Review: All Souls Trilogy”

Poem: The Changing Flame

In yet another testament to “my life doesn’t always go to plan”, the book review I promised of the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness has been postponed to next week. Unfortunately I haven’t finished reading The Book of Life yet. So I’m swapping next week’s content for this week, and next week will be the review.Continue reading “Poem: The Changing Flame”

Poem: The Dangers of Writing

This week I thought I’d share with you another poem. I wanted to share with you the cover of The Lady of Zion but I’m having technical difficulties. Apparently the power supply to my external hard-drive is damaged, so while I’m organising a work-around I decided to pull this post up the schedule. 😀 Hopefully next weekContinue reading “Poem: The Dangers of Writing”
