The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries

The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries

This classic study of traditional Celtic spirituality ties ancient Paganism, medieval myth, and traditional Fairy beliefs into a powerful celebration of Celtic wisdom and magic. This magnificent book is a collection of stories, anecdotes, and legends from all six of the regions where Celtic ways have persisted in the modern world: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and the Isle of Man. It examines how Fairy spirituality survived in the face of hostility caused by modern science and religion. It celebrates how beliefs (which only a century ago were dismissed as quaint and superstitious) were, in fact, powerful principles of ancient Pagan magic that remained essential features of the Celtic world for generation after generation. The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries offers plenty of speculation and theories regarding who or what fairies are and where they come from. But it is also an anthropological study of fairy faith which involved interviews with hundreds of people.
