narrative and that found in the Demeter-Baubo-Kore myth. Unfortunately the scope of the present work prevents me from further pursuing this difference. 107. Cf. Jung’s remarks in “Answer to Job,” in CW 11, paras. 748ff, pp. 461ff., to the effect that the dogma Assumptio Mariae was to a great extent required by a need within the people. 108. Consider, for example, that scholars such as Johannes Kepler and Isaac Newton had a definitely Christian worldview. 109. Cf. Jung’s remarks in “Answer to Job,” (in CW 11), and in Die Frau in Europa (Woman in Europe) (Zurich, 1929); and E. Neumann, Amor and Psyche, passim. 110. Cf. A. Jaffé, Religiöser Wahn und schwarze Magie (Religious Delusion and Black Magic) (Einsiedeln: Daimon, 1986). 111. Such things can be observed, for example, in the unconscious material of schizophrenics, where the personality apparently continuously builds itself up and falls apart again. In antiquity, swinging played a role in the cult of the dead and in the Dionysius cult, and seems to have served as expiation in cases of suicide, as a means of driving out demons, and as a fertility charm. Swinging back and forth is also used as a means of receiving inspiration. Cf. J. Frazer, The Golden Bough, vol. 4, (3rd edition, 1914); also The Dying God, pp. 281ff. 112. CW 6, paras. 239ff., pp. 235ff. 113. As a patriarchal religion, Christianity gave inadequate consideration to women, which easily produces in women either a mimicking of the masculine (animus possession) or an unconscious falling back upon a primitive mother imago. Cf. in this connection E. Jung, “Ein Beitrag zum Problem des Animus,” passim. 114. Cf. in this regard A. Dieterich, Mutter Erde (Mother Earth) (Berlin, 2nd ed., 1913). 115. The goose is associated, for example, with Nemesis, Aphrodite, and in the Germanic tradition, with witches. 116. On this, see C. G. Jung, Symbols of Transformation, CW 5, p. 271, para. 415; pp. 369ff., para. 577. 117. On the latter, cf. C. G. Jung and K. Kerényi, Einführung in das Wesen
