The Complete Dictionary of European Gods and Goddesses(2000)
A non fiction book by Gavin Bone, Janet Farrar and Stewart Farrar
This Dictionary is devoted to increasing mutual understanding and respect between the many religions of today's world, as well as the many ancient religions which formed the roots from which today's cultures have grown. This is the most complete dictionary of its kind - a highly useful sourcebook for both the academic and the spiritually interested. Many legendary heroes and heroines - and some historical ones, such as Arthur of Britain, who have become crystallisation points for legend - represent archetypal concepts in the same way as God- and Goddess-forms do, and thus in practice belong in the same category. Our definition of 'Gods and Goddesses' has therefore been elastic to present the most relevant information and give the reader an indication on where to find more by giving references in the script. The book includes appendices listing deity-names under Aspects; agricultural, war, love etc together with a section on the cultures mentioned and finally, one showing the comparisons to the Classical Roman Gods and Goddesses used to define the days of the week.
