(Gaea) was Mother Earth in Ancient Crete and Greece (the Greek common noun for "land" is ge or
ga). Her Roman name was Terra, she was Apia and Ghe
in the Near East. Some of her alternate names are also:
Ge and Ma.
Greek mythology we can track the cycle that archeology
has now confirmed: the movement from the matriarchal
to the patriarchal - from Mother Earth goddess Gaia,
who embodies fertility and protects life, to a dominant
male sky god who embodies vast power over the earth.
As aggressive Achaeans invaded what would become Greece,
their male-dominated religions fused with the existing
female religions. The Hellenic invasion of Crete destroyed
the peace-loving, goddess and Earth worshiping culture
of the Minoan-Mycenaean. Gaia was supplemented and replaced
by male sky gods in a patriarchal rise, when the immortal
kingdom of Zeus was established on Mt. Olympus about
1400 BC. (The earliest buildings, even during the Mycenaean
period on Crete, were still dedicated to Gaia).
