Dr. Pamela C. Berger of Boston College will discuss her films "Sorceress" and "Killian's Chronicles" which bring to the fore the clash of cultures in times past:  Christianity vs. Women Healers and Vikings, Irish vs the Indigenous Tribes of North America before the Columbus "discovery".  In the course of the conversation we'll be discussing women healers and healing plants and rituals, the changeling concept and the Charitas (charity) image.  We'll also delve into what went on at healing sanctuaries and the metamorphosis of the Grain Goddess into Saint.
