Rate this:
Uncover the history and meaning of Celtic traditions, poetry, songs, and spirituality, in a captivating and comprehensive journey through Ireland. The beauty of the Emerald Isle has always enchanted the world: the ancient ruins, the rolling green hills, the intricately carved crosses in historic graveyards. But the lure of Celtic tradition is more than just the trappings that draw tourists each year--its riches go far deeper and to far more intriguing roots. In Every Earthly Blessing, Esther de Waal takes an intimate and carefully researched look at early Celtic practices and spirituality and their connections to modern Christianity. Her exploration guides readers through every element of Celtic heritage: from songs and poetry, to viewpoints on solitude and pilgrimage, to perspectives on sorrow and healing. Avoiding sentimentalism and romanticism, de Waal casts a keen eye on a culture that has defined the lives and beliefs of so many throughout history--and continues to influence us today. Whether enjoyed in solitude or discussed with friends and family, this is a fascinating and enlightening read guaranteed to spark introspection and conversation.
