Celtic Goddesses & Women of Prophecy: Velonsae, Fedelm, Veleda & the Gaulish Sorceresses, the Uidlua — Gullveig Press

Zitat

Yarn magic, sorcery and prophecy are all words rooted in an ancient Celto-Germanic Indo-European linguistic change. This change is believed to have happened in the early Bronze Age before there even was a proto-Celtic language. (For more information especially about the archeological evidence connecting the proto-Celtic people in Spain and the proto-Germanic people in Scandinavia, […]

Celtic Festival of Sirona – Pagan Artist Alexandra Rena — Gullveig Press

Zitat

On March 30 the Romans held another festival for Salus („salvation“) who was identified with the Greek Goddess Hygieia. The snake imagery of both Goddesses was used for the Gaulish Goddess Sirona. If you wonder why snakes are such an important part of Greek and Prussian Pagan religion, the reason is that they were semi-domesticated […]

Festival of Artio — Gullveig Press

Zitat

I started a series that imagined the conquered Celtic peoples honored their own deities associated with Roman deities on the Roman festivals for Roman deities. It’s possible that some Celts did this, as they seem to have had a lot of power in how they adopted Roman religion. Now I’m reaching to the Athens festival […]

Resurrection Scene on the Mones Diadem — Balkan Celts

Celtic Festival of Dies Equeunu and the Alci — Gullveig Press

Zitat

This continues my modern Reconstruction-derived practice of interpreting Roman holy days in a Gaulish, Iberian, trans-Alpine Celtic manner. Erudinus is the only ancient Celtic deity for whom we have a Celtic festival date, so for the rest, I’m trying what some ancient Celtic language speaking tribes may have done: match a native deity with a […]

Wisdom of the Druids — T H E O S O P H Y

Zitat

Most people today have heard of the Druids, at least in the parts of the world where the Druids once thrived, namely England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and France. The Druids should therefore be of particular interest to those of us who live in the very lands where they once walked and worked. But who were […]

Celtic and Roman Deity Differences in the Roman Empire This is part of my series where Festivals for Roman deities are linked with the Celtic deities associated with those Roman deities. For example, a Roman Festival for Minerva is a Brythonic Festival of Sulis, or the 2 week Festival of Aesculapius includes possibly the most […]

Axe of Martin

Willibrord  (658 – 739 AD) was a Northumbrian missionary saint, known as the „Apostle to the Frisians“ in the modern Netherlands. He became the first Bishop of Utrecht…

Bede says: „Pepin gave Willibrord a place for his episcopal see in his famous castle, which, in the ancient language of those people (who originally built it), is called Wiltaburg (the town of the Wilti), but in the French tongue Utrecht…“

Wilti, of Wiltzi were a West Slavic tribe. During the time of Charlemagne, Wilti were in alliance with the Saxons, fighting against the Franks who were allied with another Slavic tribe, Obodriti…

You can read more about Slavs among Anglo Saxons in my post which talks about the 1906 book „Origin of the Anglo – Saxon race“ by Thomas William Shore…

Now this is very interesting. Here is why:

The Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht has a relic in its collection which is called „the hammer of St. Martin of Tours“. It was made in the 13th or 14th century from a late Bronze Age stone axe from ca. 1,000 – 700 BC, though the dating is uncertain…
