More About Brigid by Brian Wright
 
 
 
Overview
Brigid is a mysterious figure, both goddess and saint, who is still revered worldwide today in her different aspects. Combining early Celtic history, archaeology and customs associated with both the goddess and the saint, this book provides a fascinating insight into the development of this unique mythical and historical figure. Using the available evidence, the author suggests a date for the conception of the deity Brigid, suggesting why and by whom she was created. He also explains how the goddess "became" a saint and how this is historically linked with the unification of Ireland under a High King. The book goes on to look at how the goddess and the saint are still venerated in today's world, such as the burning of the perpetual flame in Ireland, relit by President McAleese in 2006.
