This study reveals how the loss of status of womanhood down the centuries transformed the Goddess figure as the shift from egalitarian to patriarchal societies took place. It draws on the Welsh myths of the Mabinogion and traces the decline of the powerful ancient Celtic goddess into the demonised witch/fairy of the Christian era.
