Celtic Mysteries : The Ancient Religion, Paperback / softback Book

Celtic Mysteries : The Ancient Religion Paperback / softback

Part of the Art and Imagination series

Paperback / softback


This new and completely redesigned edition offers a vivid and evocative insight into the last tribal culture in Europe.

Sharkey explores the mysterious beliefs of these ancient people: their gods and monuments, heroic tales and pagan rituals, and the enduring imaginative power of their art and lore.

Their epic mythmaking and sinuous art conjure a world of strange transformations and liminal states, moving freely between life and death, light and dark, mortal and divine.

The latter part of the book comprises eleven richly illustrated 'Themes' sections: illuminating groupings of ancient art that complement the main text.
