Anat-Yahu. The Queen of Heaven

A historical and sometimes spiritual journey of intense exploration through the ancient Near-East in an attempt to find and truly understand the ‘Queen of Heaven’ in her many guises as Ururu, Inanna, Ishtar, Asherah, Astarte and Anat; where the journey begins in a remote Jewish temple on the island of Elephantine in southern Egypt where the Jewish mercenaries stationed there worshipped a deity known to them as The Queen of Heaven, Anat-Yahu; and then traces the origins and aspirations of the Queen of Heaven and her many faithful followers from those ancient times. Disdained, denied and even sometimes demonised by the vast majority of historians, biblical scholars and the translators of the modern Bible; this volume shows how the Queen of Heaven was venerated and worshipped by some of the greatest civilisations known to us from that time; and that even some of the greatest kings that ever ruled the region were utterly devoted to her as their personal ‘Queen of Heaven’.
