Asherah: Goddess of the Israelites
Keywords:neo-paganism, archaeology, Asherah, Israel, Yahweh
AbstractIs it possible that the God of Israel, in the popular religion of tribal and monarchical times, had a consort? The Israelite religion unequivocally represents itself as a strict monotheism that began with Yahweh’s original revelation to Abraham, although many scholars date the origin of Hebrew monotheism a few centuries later, during the days of the great prophets (Raphael Patai, The Hebrew Goddess, 1967: 20)
