Beyond Seeresses and Sea Priestesses

Palgrave MacMillan has opened pre-orders on a new collection in the Palgrave Studies in New Religions and Alternative Spiritualities book series, edited by noted author Amy Hale, Essays on Women in Western Esotericism: Beyond Seeresses and Sea Priestesses. The publisher’s description says:

“This book is the first collection to feature histories of women in Western Esotericism while also highlighting women’s scholarship. In addition to providing a critical examination of important and under researched figures in the history of Western Esotericism, these fifteen essays also contribute to current debates in the study of esotericism about the very nature of the field itself. The chapters are divided into four thematic sections that address current topics in the study of esotericism: race and othering, femininity, power and leadership and embodiment. This collection not only adds important voices to the story of Western Esotericism, it hopes to change the way the story is told.”
