As Virgin and Mother, she incorporated the two faces of the ancient triple goddess (Virgin, Matron, Crone) which were least threatening to the church, but her continuity with archaic virgin goddesses is indisputable.

As a later identity of Isis with Horus, she shows how papal and kingly thrones all hark back to the lap of Isis upon which sits enthroned the child-god. Each gave birth to savior gods who would die and be reborn in annual cycles (a parallel to the Demeter / Kore myth), and our modern festivals of Christmas and Easter re-celebrate this primeval human rite. Depicted as black virgin, this Madonna incorporates aspects of Kali. Medieval cathedrals (called in France "notre dame" -- literally, "our lady") are venerations of the ancient Great Goddess's majesty.

The Black Madonna images in European pilgrimage shrines are a matter of some controversy. Throughout Europe there are over 500 examples of these black images and, while anathema to the orthodox church, they are widely venerated as having esoteric, magical and wonder-working powers.

THE FRENCH BLACK VIRGINS

Whoever the enigmatic Black Virgin may be, she holds a powerful attraction for her millions of devotees around the world. Her sacred sites stand on highly charged earth energy centres, enhanced by megalithic ley-lines and sacred architecture.

From ancient times to the present, people have undertaken pilgrimages to her shrines as a way to explore her mysteries and to enable her to do her miraculous work of healing, transformation and inspiration.

France has more than 300 Black Virgin places of worship and over 150 Black Virgin statues still in existence.
