The Female Side of God

Art and Ritual

The Jewish Museum in Frankfurt is presenting The Female Side of God, which spans a cultural-historical arc from the female deities of the ancient Near East to the present based on archaeological objects, ceremonial artifacts, religious texts, and artworks. The exhibition and book address the connection between the female aspects in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam for the first time. This highly topical book provides very sensitive interdisciplinary perspectives on faith, science, and art with approachable descriptions of visual representations of female deities and in-depth essays.
