About This Quiz

Maternal goddesses, sometimes called mother goddesses, are a group of female deities and maternal symbols which represent birth and vitality, fertility, sexuality, nurturing, growth and creation. They span many different religions and cultures, some of which have crossed paths.

Throughout history, as far back as the Stone Age, there were mother-like goddesses and figures who were worshiped and praised by women through religious rituals and artwork for protection and guidance. Many people believed that praying to these goddesses would improve their ability to conceive and would make them better mothers. In some places, there were even shrines and statues built in their honor. 

Some of the most well-known maternal goddesses include Gia from Greek mythology, Isis from the Egyptians, Frigga from Norse lore and Cybele from Roman history. Many people include the Virgin Mary, and some include Mother Nature, who, although she is not actually a goddess, represents the giving of life.
