W Y Evans-Wentz - 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
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.
