A female prophet.
- I have spent a good deal of the last three and a half years researching the Sibyl of Cumae, the pagan prophetess of classical antiquity said by Virgil to write her oracles on leaves.
- In Ezekiel 13: 17-20, for example, God condemns certain false prophetesses, or sorceresses.
- Otherwise a severe eschatological affliction awaits her and her children, the spiritual followers of the prophetess.
