Friday lecture: Who was the Queen of Sheba?
This lecture will focus on the mysterious, mythological and legendary underpinnings of this erotic and powerful Queen who spans three major world religions, Judaism, Islam, and Ethiopian Coptic Christianity. Jung himself became fascinated with Sheba through his intense study of
alchemy where the image of King and Queen were central to his formulation of individuation and transformation. According to legend Sheba had a “deformity” of very hairy legs. How is the Queen of Sheba, hairy legs and all, pertinent to us today as men and women and to Jung’s
notion of the Anima Mundi or World Soul and our conscious relationship to the erotic?
