    Dissertations and Theses about Gods, Cults & Mythology - a resource

    Here are some scholarly works I have come across about mythology, deity and other topics of interest.
    They're free to download. Many are for masters degrees and such, so they're well sourced and researched. The only drawn-back is some can be outdated, but not all of them are.


    Also see:
    MonSno_LeeDra's thread:
    Theses on Artemis (not mine)


    More to come!

    ETA:

    The Great Goddess of the Levant (PDF direct link) - short, but detailed article. About Asherah, Anat, etc.
    The Cult of Asherah in Ancient Israel and Judah: Evidence for a Hebrew Goddess (PDF direct link) - snippet, but contains info

    ETA2:
    FRAU HOLLE: IN THE MARCHEN AND BEYOND AN ANALYSIS OF THE FIGURE FRAU HOLLE IN THE GRIMM BROTHERS FAIRY TALE AND GERMANIC MYTHOLOGY (PDF Direct link)

    Also, if you know of any dissertations and theses online for full, free reading or download, please share!
    I just ask that they be scholarly, academic texts/works.

    I am bumping this because some of the links still work, and I think there's a lot of great information here. Anyone else have links? I'll try to find some to add.
