The Flaming Door

The Mission of the Celtic Folk-Soul

Eleanor Merry

304 pp.  

Floris Books

The Flaming Door is perhaps Eleanor Merry’s best known work. The secrets of initiation slumber in the ancient legends, in which men and women found their way through the “flaming door,” the threshold between the physical and spiritual worlds.

Part one covers the time before Christ and includes studies of the Bards, the Cauldron of Ceridwen, and Hu the Mighty. Part two discusses the time since Christ, which includes the Legends of Odrum, St. Columba, and the Legends of the Rose and the Lily.

This is must reading for anyone interested in Celtic myths and Christianity.
