Additional information supplied by publisher

"The Sacred World of the Celts" is a comprehensive and richly illustrated examination of ancient Celtic traditions and their continuity and relevance to the present day.

Celtic language and legend were largely passed down through the monks of Ireland and Wales and consequently were "christianized." In turn, these renditions were subject to the interpretations of various "Celtic" revivalists that further concealed the true nature of the Celtic world. Nigel Pennick pushes back these disfiguring overlays and restores to us the primordial Celtic tradition, one which interweaves the spirit into all aspects of daily life.

Examines all aspects of Celtic life, including myth, the status of women, and the bardic tradition.
