Celtic Book Of Days

By Caitlin Matthews

Review by Ellen Evert Hopman

Book Cover Graphic The Celtic Book of Days: A Guide to Celtic Spirituality & Wisdom is a visually beautiful work as well as a poetic guide to daily meditation. Illustrated with excerpts from The Book of Kells, Pre-Raphaelite paintings and drawings, woodcuts and prints of archaeological artifacts and Celtic designs. It is divided into the four cycles of the Celtic year, Samhain, Imbolc, Beltaine, and Lughnasad.

Every day of each month has an entry worthy of contemplation -- either an excerpt from Celtic mythology, a snippet of Celtic folklore, a Culdee Christian teaching, or a traditional triad extolling Celtic virtues. Traditional days for Well Dressings, pilgrimages, herb gathering, and seasonal festivals are given.

This book will be appreciated by lovers of Celtic art and lore, Pagan or Christian, and by anyone who collects spiritual teachings as a source of hope and comfort in daily life.

The Celtic Book of Days, Caitlin Matthews, Destiny Books, ISBN 0-89281-565-4, Clothbound - 128 pages, $24.95, Highly Recommended.
