English: Asherah is a Semitic mother goddess, who appears in a number of ancient sources including Akkadian writings by the name of Ashratum/Ashratu and in Hittite as Asherdu(s). Asherah is generally considered identical with the Ugaritic goddess ʼAṯirat.

The Book of Jeremiah written circa 628 BC possibly refers to Asherah when it uses the title "queen of heaven".

Note that her name is completely distinct from that of Ashtoreth/Astarte/Ishtar -- in the original Semitic languages, the name Asherah begins with a glottal stop consonant א, while Ashtoreth begins with a voiced pharyngeal consonant ע, and in the older Semitic languages these are two separate consonants.
