Review of Pagan Portals: Brigid
When I heard about this book, I couldn’t wait to read it. Number one reason is that the Goddess Brigid resonated so much in the hearts and souls of the Irish people that they stubbornly refused to give her up despite the island nation’s conversion to Christianity. They still kept their wells, their customs, and there was even a sisterhood to keep the sacred flame of Brigid lit. No wonder a Saint Brigid appeared to justify the Celtic people’s continued devotion.
Author Morgan Daimler’s book reveals the history of Brigid in an informative style. Brigid extend past the border of Ireland to Wales and Scotland. Daimler puts the skin and flesh on Brigid making her into full person/deity as opposed to a name with a few characteristics strung after it.
The creation of the book was a labor of love for the author’s daughter who found herself drawn to Brigid even as a young girl. Daimler painstakingly researched ancient and contemporary texts and oral legends to present the various facets of Brigid.
Pagan Portals: Brigid also includes prayers, chants, and various ways to honor the Goddess/Saint. This is an exciting introduction to Morgan Daimler. She has also penned books on The Morrigan, Irish Paganism, and Fairy Craft.
I give this book five stars on research method, interesting conveyance of information, and thoroughly enjoyable. This is a much-needed resource for those interested in Celtic history, Paganism, World Religions, Goddesses, or expanding their knowledge base. The last should be everyone. I’m definitely adding a paperback copy to my library.
