Re-visioning Medusa: from Monster to Divine Wisdom




A remarkable collection of essays, poems, and art by scholars who have researched Her, artists who have envisioned Her, women who have known Her in their personal story—and combinations of all those capacities. All have spoken with Her and share something of their communion in this anthology.

Several of the pieces have been excerpted on this blog.
