Episode Summary

EDIT
Love and the Goddess
AIRED:
In the first half of this hour, Campbell describes the thirteenth century emergence of romantic love as an ideal. Before this time, marriage was considered a social contract, but the stories and myths of the troubadors talked of marriages based on love, and this created a cultural revolution.

He then goes on to discuss the Goddess and the archetype of the great mother. This figure has been present in all cultures in one form or another, and even when suppressed, has returned again and again in myth, religion, and popular culture. Campbell examines the history of this image and why the human mind seems to crave it so universally.moreless
