About this product
- DescriptionThe first of its kind, Guillermo's Sibyls explores the history and remarkable influence of the oracles. With fascinating depth, it takes a look at the divinatory females of classical antiquity, their status as spokeswomen for the gods, and addresses the significance of a society willing to bow to matriarchal authority. Along with accounts of the Erythraean, Cumaean, Delphic and Tiburtine Sibyls, Guillermo considers the unusual respect with which Christians have traditionally treated the pagan figures.
- Author BiographyJorge Guillermo has degrees in Theology and Architectural History and has lectured on Dutch architecture in several museums and universities in Europe and the United States. He is the author of Dutch Houses and Castles and Cuba - Five Hundred Years of Images. He is currently working on a book about the balance between tradition and innovation in western culture.
