Priestesses, Pythonesses, & Sibyls. Edited by Sorita d'Este
I had been interested in this anthology for some time, so upon finally receiving a copy, it wasn't long before it was read.
The first note of praise, is in the structure the works were placed in, each a segment of the whole, each flowing from the last, yet each of a completely differing perspective, the foreword wetting the lips of the delights of insights in store, the opening three pieces setting the scene, it was an remarkable piece of editing to say the least.
Also, one of the most prominent factors of this book, were it's diversity of writing styles, beliefs, systems, traditions, religions, culminating under a theme where all merged together to form the whole.
The book truly opened up for me with The Mantle of Isis - Naomi Ozeniek, it being the beginning of a carving out the resonance I shall find in these works corresponding with my own experiences!
Priestess of Avalon continued to imbue my connection with the themes, of which at this point I was gaining certain validation without having asked for it, on a personal level!
Waking the Gods, I found started gracefully, & in the first person, then jolted into a third person narrative, which was off-putting, but by the time a paragraph containing Hekate, came around, I found myself nodding & smiling.
The rest of the works kept building to a crescendo, that seemed aimed specifically for my understanding, of course it was merely that elements related so strongly with my experience, beliefs, or interests, that it seemed that way.
Overall, I learned so much about myself, which I had no idea would happen, as the anthology was a gathering of others knowledge & experiences.
