Pagan Portals - Brigid is a basic introduction to the Goddess Brigid focusing on her history and myth as well
as her modern devotion and worship. Primarily looking at the Irish Goddess but including a discussion of her
Pan-Celtic appearances, particularly in Scotland. Her different appearances in mythology are discussed along
with the conflation of the pagan Goddess with Catholic saint. Modern methods for neopagans to connect to and
honor this popular Goddess include offerings and meditation, and personal anecdotes from the author´s
experiences are included as well.
Who was Brigid to the pre-Christian pagans? Who is she today to neopagans? How do we re-weave the threads of
the old pagan Goddess and the new? Learn about Brigid´s myths among the pagan Irish, the stories of Bride
in Scotland, and the way that people today are finding and honoring this powerful and important deity to find the answer.
"This book is a confident piece of work that is both erudite and lucid - no easy task at any time, but
when handling such a complex and sensitive subject it is extremely difficult. Not only does this book succeed,
it seems to me to be a model to which other writers should aspire. Its clarity and the author's obvious enthusiasm
for the subject make it a compelling read. An excellent compendium of the subject worth its place on anyone's shelf."
Graeme K. Talboys, author of The Way of the Druid
"Morgan Daimler's work on Brigid is fresh yet thoroughly rooted in the legends and lore.
The readable style captures the complexity that is this once-and-future Goddess.
Morgan gets Brigid - not as a shadow or an archetype but as a fully-fledged Being. Highly recommended."
H. Byron Ballard, author of Asfidity and Mad-Stones
