In "The Primordial Child in Primordial Times" Kere;nyi treats the child-God as an enduring and significant figure in Greek, Norse, Finnish, Etruscan, and Judeo-Christian mythology. He discusses the Kore as Athena, Artemis, Hecate, and Demeter-Persephone, the mother-daughter of the Eleusinian mysteries. Jung speaks of the Divine Child and the Maiden as living psychological realities that provide continuing meaning in people's lives.
The investigations of C. Kere;nyi are continued in a later study, Eleusis: Archetypal Image of Mother and Daughter (Princeton).
