Gimbutas was a child her mother gave her this prophesy:"You will give something
very important to the world which will keep people from becoming ill."
What Gimbutas gave was an interdisciplinary
interpretation of art and artifacts that substantiated a society which honored a Great Goddess. Gimbutas claims this Goddess was nurturing, protective and fostered a society that was basically
non-violent, where women were respected and involved in public as well as private life. While this interpretation is controversial, what
Gimbutas did raise was hope and commitment among modern seekers to remember this form of community and begin to emulate it.
