In this work Patai proposes to trace the historical development of the female deity in Jewish religion and mysticism. He bases his study of this figure on anthropological-psychological theory and substantiates his ideas with a battery of archeological, historical, cultural, and literary evidence assembled chronologically. Occasionally Patai resorts to comparative methodology.
