The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries   by W. Y. Evans-Wentz

With a Modern Introduction by Carl McColman

Announcing a new edition of the classic study of traditional Celtic spirituality-a book that unites ancient Paganism, medieval myth, and traditional Fairy beliefs into a powerful celebration of Celtic wisdom and magic.

W. Y. Evans-Wentz was best known as the translator of The Tibetan Book of the Dead. In the world of Celtic spirituality he made his mark through The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries. This magnificent book is a collection of stories, anecdotes, and legends from all six of the regions where Celtic ways have persisted in the modern world: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and the Isle of Man. It examines how Fairy spirituality survived in the face of hostility caused by modern science and religion. It celebrates how beliefs (which only a century ago were dismissed as quaint and superstitious) were, in fact, powerful principles of ancient Pagan magic that remained essential features of the Celtic world for generation after generation.

This edition of The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries includes an insightful new introduction by metaphysical author Carl McColman that shows how this classic work remains important and vital to practitioners of Celtic and magical spirituality nearly a century after it was written.

The book features:

· An overview of Fairy traditions as recorded in Irish and Welsh myth.
· The Celtic belief in reincarnation and in the "Otherworld" where Fairies dwell.
· How the Fairy faith relates to ancient spirituality, Paganism, and Celtic Christianity.
· The relationship between the Fairy faith and modern science.
· And more.

The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries will naturally appeal to Wiccans, Pagans, and anyone else with an interest in Fairies or an appreciation for Celtic traditions.
