14513Re: women religion
- Sep 3 3:27 AMJan Dlugosz in the 15th century wrote about pagan practices, although he was discussing historic events, not things witnessed first hand.
There is a brief quote from Dlugosz about men, women and children participating in a pagan ritual on page 287 of
Dowden, Ken _European paganism: the realities of cult from antiquity to the Middle Ages_ (London, New York; Routledge, 2000)
Another book that Jadwiga didn't mention, is the very readable _Roles of the Northern Goddess_ by Hilda Ellis Davidson (London; Routledge, 1998)
A book that will frustrate you with it's sweeping statements and lack of references for its' assertions, is Jonas Trinkunas _Of Gods and Holidays: The Baltic Heritage_ (Vilnius : Tverme, 1999). It is an interesting read, but I wouldn't recommend it as a reference.
Hope that helps a little,
