Brigid’s Light; Tending the Ancestral Flame of the Beloved Celtic Goddess
Edited by Cairelle Crow & Laura Louella
This anthology celebrates Brigid, an ancient and mysterious Celtic spirit who ranks among today’s most popular modern goddesses. Venerated in many forms, not least as a saying and a goddess, Brigid has traveled the globe alongside her devotees. Once a goddess with a narrow territory, she is now an internationally beloved presence. While acknowledging her origins, this book also explores Brigid from the perspective of those outside her original Celtic homeland.
Packed full of art, poetry, stories, spells, rituals, recipes, and traditions, Brigid’s Light pays homage to the worldwide influence of Brigid’s magic and lore, especially among the descendants of immigrants to the Americas. In compiling these individual works, editors Cairelle Crow and Laura Louella have given voice to those traveling ancestors by showcasing a rich and beautiful heritage manifested through embodiments of devotion by their descendants, as well as the many others touched by Brigid.
Featuring contributions from Amy Blackthorn, H. Byron Ballard, Courtney Weber, Laura Tempest Zakroff, Annwyn Avalon, Nancy Hendrickson, Dawn Aurora Hunt, Kimberly Moore and many others.
