Will someone with knowledge of this deity fill me in. How did a Sumerian goddess of fertility become associated with prostitution, war and fat women?
Baal was her consort. Is this a recent and modern interpretation or did someone change history just recently?
This seems to be a common christian theme when a belief gains traction against an all-male deity christian beliefs. I thought this practice died out
in the middle ages?
