Rate this:
The Minoans, a prosperous, peaceful island people of the Mediterranean region, influenced the Greeks, as seen in the Greek Minotaur and Theseus myth. Minoan art suggests a peaceful life without war, with violence sublimated in their bull worship rituals. Females seem to have been more influential here than anywhere else in the Ancient World. Yet, recent archaeological discoveries suggest that secret sacrifices, led by women, were part of their religious rituals.-- back cover.
