In ancient Sumer and Babylon, temple priestess/prostitutes of the goddess

communion with the divine.
The term "sacred whore" is not oxymoronic. If we explore the etymology
of the words "whore" or "harlot," we find that the split between "priestess"
and "prostitute" is a relatively recent one. In her book When God Was
A Woman, Merlin Stone informs us that the Hebrew word zonah means both
prostitute and prophetess. Barbara Walker, in her Dictionary of Woman's
Myths and Secrets, points out that the Hebrew word hor means a cave, pit,
or dark hole.
