Celtic Religion - what information do we really have From: Raimund KARL (a8700035@unet.univie.ac.at) To: CELTIC-L@DANANN.HEA.IE Subject: Celtic Religion - what information do we really have - Part 1-7 Date: Sun, 1 Dec 1996 10:54:40 - Tue, 10 Dec 1996 15:20:01 To begin with, lets first look at the sources available to us: There are quite numerous sources available, contrary to the usual belief that there is almost nothing actually there. First, there are the archaeological sources. Folktexts: A library of folktales, folklore, fairy tales, and mythology, page 1 page 1 edited and/or translated by D. L. Ashliman University of Pittsburgh © 1996-2020 Return to: Mercantilism in Spain The seeming prosperity and glittering power of Spain in the 16th century proved a sham and an illusion in the long run. For it was fuelled almost completely by the influx of silver and gold from the Spanish colonies in the New World. In the short run, the influx of bullion provided a means by which the Spanish could purchase and enjoy the products of the rest of Europe and Asia; but in the long run, price inflation wiped out this temporary advantage. The result was that when the influx of specie dried up, in the 17th century, little or nothing remained. Not only that — the bullion prosperity induced people and resources to move to southern Spain, particularly the port of Seville, where the new specie entered Europe.

Aphrodite Joins Yemaya & Mami Wata It’s 30 months ago that I wrote this post about goddesses and my immersion again in studies of the collective unconscious and mythology. I had no vision of a GlamTribale jewelry collection when I joined Aphrodite and Mami Wata in a cohesive vision of female sensuality and its place in the male unconscious mind. Writing just now about Lais Ribero as a Bahia beauty in L’Officiel Netherlands as ‘Toda Menina Baiana’ (strut your stuff), Mami Wata appeared and asked to have her story reshared once again. There’s a bit of hell tp pay that she wasn’t first in line in Benjamin’s goddess essays. Mami W was not persuaded, but she has forgiven me. After a long and difficult journey for me — which is nothing compared to Mami Wata’s journey and suffering on the slave ships across the Atlantic and into Haiti and on to South America — the GlamTribale goddesses are here.

Guide to pronounciation of Irish mythic names & places - The Druid Grove Hi all - I'm posting this as reference info and will add to it as time goes on. These are the approximate pronounciations of Irish place names and person names found in the myth tales and in history/geography. The pronounciations given are those of a somewhat "normalized" Gaeilge ie. without applying each variant stress of word sound in their various dialectic forms (Ulster, Munster, Connacht Irish).
