Ta’Nit and No Fear (+ two Grief and No Fear links)

Sophia's Children

What does one say

in the face of the unspeakable,

as Thomas Merton called it?

I know that I’m not the only one

who’s been deeply reflecting on this

in recent days and weeks, even

in the midst of the busy ‘daily work’.

So when I wondered what to

share here through Sophia’s Children,

a post from the deep archives

came into my awareness.

Here it is: Ta’Nit and ‘No Fear’.

Hundreds of statues of the Phoenician

Goddess Ta’Nit were discovered in 1973-74,

during a marine-archaeology expedition

of Phoenician shipwrecks. They date

from the 7 to 5th centuries B.C.E.

The Phoenicians were great mariners

and traders, visiting trading

cultures throughout the Mediterranean,

Europe, and even perhaps in the Americas.

They are said to have had a

bright and flourishing culture.
