Elisabeth Goldsmith begins Ancient Pagan Symbols with a poetic description of the creative forces of life and the metaphysical love affair between men and women, lingham and yoni, sun and moon-sex. When first published in the 1920s, this book was thought scandalous, but it has endured generations to become one of the most important references for Pagan spiritualists.

Goldsmith examines symbols found in the art and artifacts from across cultures and throughout history. Explanations reveal the symbolism of the elements, the lotus, the Tree of Life, the cross, the swastika, the trisula, and many more, fully illustrated and indexed for easy referral.
