Sophia — Holy Spirit and the soul of humankind. Sophia is the archetypal feminine Creator, with roots in Paganism and the Hebraic traditions. She is before everything, and sets all of life in motion. To some, she is the feminine aspect of God. To others, she comes before and is the Mother of all that is divine. Her name translates as 'Wisdom'. Revered in both Pagan and Judeo-Christian traditions, Sophia is the dark, void source of Light.
