14799Isis as virgin
- Mar 22 11:36 AMCan any one here tell me when and where in Egyptian texts Isis is
described as "virgin"? Does the word that I understand to be used for
this -- hwnt -- only mean "never having had intercourse"? Is there any
truth to the claim that Isis was always regarded as a /perpetual virgin,
/let alone an "immaculate one" as is asserted by//William Williamson
(The Great Law: A Study of Religious Origins [Longmans, 1889] 26) in
his claim that
> the goddess Neith, who, like Isis, the mother of Horus, was known byIf not, what texts falsify this claim?
> the titles of Mother of God, Immaculate Virgin, Queen of Heaven, Star
> of the Sea, The Morning Star, The Intercessor.
