The Great Goddess of Cyprus
A thousand and six hundred years ago, the famous sanctuary of the Great Goddess of Cyprus in Palaepaphos was silenced, but the overtones of her worship continued to resonate through time. Today we trace the remnants of the presence of the Cypriot goddess on the land she was born and adored as the Queen “Anassa”, as the reigning feminine authority. Guided by archaeological evidence, we travel back in time, to investigate known and unknown aspects of the worship of Aphrodite in Cyprus. Dr. Jacqueline Karageorghis, an internationally renowned French Archaeologist, is our main fellow traveler in this breathtaking journey.
