The Female Side of God : Visual representations of a suppressed tradition Hardback

Edited by Eva Atlan, Michaela Feurstein-Prasser, Felicitas Heimann-Jelinek, Mirjam Wenzel (Judisches Museum Frankfurt)



The Jewish Museum Frankfurt presents The Female Side of God, based on numerous objects from cultural history and contemporary works of art.

In a close reading of these works, the exhibition catalogue introduces this hardly known and oftentimes even 'suppressed tradition'.

Comprehensible descriptions of these visual representations of a female deity, which can be found throughout the centuries, alternate with five essays, resulting from an interdisciplinary symposium of the research association 'Religious Positionings'.

A highly topical publication, comprising faith, science, and art. Text in English and German. Text by Eva Atlan, Michaela Feurstein-Prasser, Eckart J.

Gillen, Felicitas Heimann-Jelinek, Moshe Idel, Angelika Neuwirth, Jochen Sander, David Sperber, Debra Wacks, Mirjam Wenzel
