Woven textiles are produced by nearly all human societies. This volume investigates evidence for patterned textiles (that is, textiles woven with elaborate designs) that were produced by two early Mediterranean civilizations: the Minoans of Crete and the Mycenaeans of mainland Greece, that prospered during the Aegean Bronze Age, c. 3000–1200 BC, contemporary with Pharaonic Egypt. Both could boast of specialists in textile production. Together with their wine, oil, and art, Minoan and Mycenaean textiles were much desired as trade goods. Artistic images of their fabrics preserved both in the Aegean and in other parts of the Mediterranean show elaborate patterns woven with rich decorative detail and color. Only a few small scraps of textiles survive but evidence for their production is abundant and frescoes supply detailed information about a wide variety of now-lost textile goods from luxurious costumes and beautifully patterned wall hangings and carpets, to more utilitarian decorated fabrics. A review of surviving artistic and archaeological evidence indicates that textiles played essential practical and social roles in both Minoan and Mycenaean societies.

"In a society more aware of sexual abuse than ever before, we need to find the path to healing and reconciliation. This book is filled with wise guidance for that journey: gripping personal stories that invite reflection; deep prayers that stir the soul; solid spiritual exercises that lead to greater integrity. The authors, who demonstrate a great sense of compassion, have taken threads of grief and anger and woven them into a powerful invitation to new hope."Jim Bacik, Ph.D.Theologian, Pastor Corpus Christi University Parish Toledo, Ohio "The opportunity for spiritual growth abounds in the wake of crisis. This book confronts our present day institutional breakdowns with a process that seeks not to fix the problems but to transcend them. Using personal dialogue and inner reflection, the reader is led to interior depths where the Spirit heals and transforms. The result is a New Creation with a consciousness that is both feminine and masculine in equal balance." Joan Hauser, M.Div. Few in our society are untouched by abuse and the grief it holds. The Spirit is challenging us to look at ourselves, to delve more deeply into our stories and to share what we learn with others in a co-creative response.
