The first of its kind, Guillermo's Sibyls explores the history and remarkable influence of the oracles. With fascinating depth, it takes a look at the divinatory females of classical antiquity, their status as spokeswomen for the gods, and addresses the significance of a society willing to bow to matriarchal authority. Along with accounts of the Erythraean, Cumaean, Delphic and Tiburtine Sibyls, Guillermo considers the unusual respect with which Christians have traditionally treated the pagan figures.
