Celtic Mysteries: The Ancient Religion by John Sharkey
The last tribal culture in Europe was that of thte Celtic lands, whose landscape and traditions hold echoes of the ancient religion of nature and its symbols of death and rebirth. The mysteries begin in the frenzy of battle, where the hero is transfigured and a God appears; or in a ghostly circle of stones left by an unknown people; or in the mystic centre of the Celtic Cross; or in the stone heads of Gaul and Ireland, which face both ways; or in the illusive in-between place of mist and twilight.
Well illustrated throughout, this glossy, A4-size hardback combines photographs of real architectural locations and artefacts with ancient Celtic mythology to create a fascinating book.
