Saint Martin : Between Michaelmas and the Holy Nights Pamphlet
Part of the The Little Series (WECAN) series
A study of Saint Martin, his life, legend, historical and esoteric significance, and suggestions for new directions for festival celebrations. The legend of Saint Martin, the fourth-century Roman soldier who divided his cloak in half and gave it to a beggar, then went on to lay down his weapons forever, has deep significance for us today - when the necessary process of "dividing" into self-conscious individuals threatens to lead only to egotistical strife, if not permeated with love.
This original study offers an overview of the saint's life, legend, historical and esoteric significance, and suggestions for new directions for festival celebrations.
