Imbolc is a state of mind — 1 Comment

  1. I’ve been rather suspicious of that belief the Celtic peoples were’t connected in a religious way. In fact I think Ireland was the centre with the religion extending east.
    There has been a care taken by Archaeologists and Historians together with Classicists and folklorists utterly disproportionate to the context. I think there is a fear still, of the Celtic Revival putting pressure on the liberal consensus like it did back before WW1. But I think that’s a mis-stating, what the revival did was place a hook that the dismissed could hang a hat. Basically it wasn’t a hankering for a Celtic ideal that ended the Romanov, Hapsberg, Hohenzollern nor did it cause a civil war in the UK. For that is what the war for Irish independence was. 🙂
