Brigid's Light : Tending the Ancestral Flame of the Beloved Celtic Goddess
Stories, spells, rituals, and recipes celebrating the worldwide influence of this beloved Celtic goddess Brigid, with contributions from Laura Tempest Zakroff, Courtney Weber, and many others. This anthology celebrates Brigid, an ancient and mysterious Celtic spirit who ranks among today’s most popular modern goddesses. Venerated in many forms including as a saint and a goddess, Brigid has traveled the globe alongside the Celtic diaspora. Once a goddess with a narrow territory, she is now an internationally beloved presence. While acknowledging her origins, this book also explores Brigid from the perspective of those outside her original Celtic homeland. Editors Cairelle Crow and Laura Louella have gathered art, poetry, stories, spells, rituals, recipes, and traditions as an homage to Brigid’s magic and lore, especially among the descendants of immigrants to the Americas.
