Mysteria Misc. Maxima is a weekly feature which brings together links on religion and esotericism from around the internet.
- While it’s a slam-dunk that the devout prefer religious political leaders, it turns out they don’t really care which faith said leader adheres to. Atheists still out of luck. (Epiphenom)
- The Vatican has a “profane museum” full of pagan art. They guard it with a red curtain and an 18+ sign. (Religious Dispatches)
- What does a virgin birth say about the divinity of women? (Feminism and Religion)
- Perhaps the above link would go well in Goddess Thealogy, a new journal for the study of female-centric religion. (Institute for Thealogy & Deasophy via Letter from Hardscrabble Creek)
