Mémoire n°11 – Gods of the West. A study in latin and celtic religion (Part 1 - Indiges) By Fabio P. Barbieri
Paperback: $16.31
Prints in 3-5 business days
From the moment it was published in defiance of its dead author's wishes, the Aeneid became the standard for Latin literature. Latin was taught out of it, and Dark Age authors such as Gildas and... More > Gregory of Tours, who knew no other classical Latin author, quoted freely from it. Despite a brief and rather silly period of nineteenth-century disparagement, it has remai-ned so ever since ; the standard for ail intellectual-minded writers, the greatest work of art to emerge from the ancient world, and one of the greatest poems of the world. Above ail, Virgil's philosophical talents have been fruitful down the ages : every poet who successfully attempted large-scale religious epics - Dante, Tasso, Milton - found his chief inspiration in him, and indeed it is doubtful whether, had he not existed, their work would have been conceivable< Less
Mémoire n°27 - Ancient Celtic and Non-Celtic Place-Names of Northern Continental Europe By Ashwin E. GOHIL
Paperback: $27.71
Prints in 3-5 business days
It is widely accepted that the origin of the Celts (in the sense of Celtic-speakers) is probably to be found on the European continent and that they covered a large area in Europe and Asia Minor.... More > Since they lived during the period of Greek and Roman supremacy, many records of the Celts and the places where they dwelled, have been transmitted owing to Greek and Roman authors. Place-names provide a good basis for tracing the 'Celticity' of places and peoples, and as archaeology alone fails to divulge the early history and distribution of Celtic speakers, linguistic research is very relevant. Place-names should be considered as the most widespread linguistic legacy of the earliest Celts, since they occur beyond areas of what belongs to the field of typically so-called 'Celtic' archaeology.< Less

Mémoire n°6 - Dieux d'eau : Apollons celtes et gaulois By Claude Sterckx
Paperback: $19.71
Prints in 3-5 business days
Le présent travail, qui a fourni la matière d'un cours donné à l'Institut des Hautes Études de Belgique au long de l'année académique 1995-1996.... More > Celui-ci part d'un mythe irlandais pour lui découvrir d'abord assez d'échos dans les autres traditions celtes accessibles pour garantir qu'il s'agit bien d'un motif pancelte. Elle montre ensuite qu'il se trouve assez de parallèles dans les autres traditions indo-européennes - et suffisamment spécifiques - pour garantir que les convergences celtes ne sont pas une contamination interne tardive mais les vestiges d'un mythème hérité du plus ancien fonds commun indo-européen. Ce mythème a sous-tendu les cultes gaulois et celtes antiques des eaux vives et du dieu qui les patronnait, identifié à l'Apollon gréco-romain. Ce sont donc tous les dossiers des Apollons celto-romains que nous avons passés en revue pour tenter de clarifier, autant que nous en sommes capable, le complexe mythologique et religieux qu'ils recouvrent.< Less
Oak, Broom and Meadowsweet: A Book of Blodeuwedd By Giles Watson
Paperback: $4.94
Prints in 3-5 business days
The story of Blodeuwedd, from the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogion, has been a source of fascination for readers and listeners for many centuries. A young woman created out of flowers by two... More > magicians, Blodeuwedd is pledged to marry Lleu even before she has drawn breath, but the magic of her male creators cannot suppress her own desires. Her fate is to be transformed into an owl in punishment for refusing to accept the life that has been pre-ordained for her. The legend of Blodeuwedd encodes the story of a seasonal goddess of sovereignty which lies at the heart of Welsh mythology, at the same time as embodying women's historical struggle for self-determination. Giles Watson's poem allows Blodeuwedd to tell her own story. The author brings not only his love for Welsh culture, but also his experience as a rehabilitator of wild owls, to the task of giving Blodeuwedd a voice of her own.< Less
