Abstract: The mythological feminine motif disappeared from Western mythology with the entry of Orthodox Christianity. This thesis discusses the possible reasons why this happened and the possible implications of such loss. The works of Carl Gustav Jung, Joseph Campbell, Erich Neumann and Anne Baring & Jules Cashford show a common approach to answering these questions, with all of them arguing that the Goddess has not been properly integrated into present day mythology, but rather been rejected with only certain parts having been allowed expression. Especially the works of Jung discuss the implication of this rejection and both he and Neumann argue that the feminine mythological motif is vital for the health of humanity and culture. Based on this statement Neumann argues that we are witnessing a new age of human love, a new epoch where the human itself is divine and equal to the Gods, which the pre-Christian mythological tale of Amor and Psyche points to. However, as the symbol of wholeness tries to communicate, such an age of human love requires conscious femininity and conscious masculinity. The question of the missing feminine motif is therefore, in essence, a developing inquiry about what is to come, an inquiry about our ability to awaken, and about how to integrate feminine imagery into our mythology, and therefore also into our psyche.
