I posted a short piece on Medium available at this link discussing the origins of the Christian practice of making the sign of the cross, which I believe the evidence strongly suggests derives from goddess worship.  This relates indirectly to Sappho via Empedocles (if there was more evidence for Sappho it surely would be possible directly to relate it to her).  In writing that piece I pulled together a number of observations I have made separately in various posts available on this site.
