Description

Many of the beliefs and customs of the ancient Celts persist even today, sometimes in surprising ways-and interest just keeps growing. Through illustrations old and new, this guide to Celtic magic and religion examines their enduring strength and continued relevance. It provides background on the Celts and their relationship to nature, their totem animals and mother goddesses, and the Irish Book of Invasions that supplied so much material for the mythological tradition. Individual chapters focus on such significant figures as Brighid, the sister or virgin aspect of the Great Goddess, as well as The Divine Ancestor and the Son of Light.
