Summary: This thesis examines the development of a goddess in the ancient Mediterranean.Popularly worshipped since at least the Paleolithic era, this goddess served as the culturalforbear of various goddesses throughout the region. The dominant religious culture ofboth the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras was emphatically matriarchal andcontemporaneous societies mirrored this religious attitude with matrilineal customs. Overthe course of many millennia, the goddess' identity and roles developed in different waysacross the Mediterranean region. When Augustus came to power in Rome in the firstcentury B.C.E., he adopted the tradition ofhis family and professed descent from Venusto lend divine credence to his claim to power. With the help of the poet Vergil, Augustusmanipulated the character of Venus to embody and reinforce female roles desired in hisburgeoning empire.
