Excerpt from The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries During the years 1907 - 9 this study first took shape, being then based mainly on literary sources; and during the latter year it was successfully presented to the Faculty Of Letters of the University of Rennes, Brittany, for the Degree of Docteur - és-lettres. Since then I have re - investigated the whole problem of the Celtic belief in Fairies, and have collected very much fresh material. Two years ago the scope of my original research was limited to the four Chief Celtic countries, but now it includes all of the Celtic countries. In the present study, which has profited greatly by criticisms of the first passed by scholars in Britain and in France, the original literary point of View is combined with the broader point of View of anthropology. This study, the final and more comprehensive form of my Views about the fairy-faith would never have been possible had I not enjoyed during many months the kindly advice and constant encouragement Of Mr. R. R. Marett, Reader in Social Anthropology in the University of Oxford, and Fellow of Exeter College. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The Secret Commonwealth of Elves Fauns Fairies

The Secret Commonwealth of Elves  Fauns   Fairies Author Robert Kirk

Mr. Lang’s book is the most curious imaginable. Written in 1691 by a Scotch divine, it is nothing less than a calm assumption of the existence at that time of a commonwealth of elves, fauns, and fairies, whose government, habits, etc., are minutely described upon the authority of "Men of Second Sight" (it is not clear whether the author himself was one of these by virtue of bis being a seventh son), the method of obtaining which gift is also carefully explained. These fairies are of a middle nature between man and angel; they inhabit subterranean abodes, which they change at each quarter of the year. "They are distributed in tribes and orders, and have children, nurses, marriages, deaths, and burials; their apparel and speech is like that of the people and country under which they live; they are said to have aristocratical rulers and laws, but no discernible religion, love, or devotion towards God," their weapons are most what solid earthly bodies, nothing of iron, but much of stone, like to yellow soft flint spa, shaped liked a barbed arrow-head, but flung like a dart, with great force." The moral character of these "subterraneans" is minutely described and the conclusion is, "But for swearing and intemperance, they are not observed so subject to those irregularities, as to envy, spite, hypocrisy, lying, and dissimulation." The author adds to the evidence given by his friends, etc., a letter from Lord Tarbott to the Hon. Robert Boyle, in which many additional instances of second sight are narrated.

The folklore of the Scottish Highlands is unique and very much alive. Anne Ross is a Gaelic-speaking scholar and archaeologist who has lived and worked in crofting communities, which has enabled her to collect information firsthand and assess the veracity of material already published. In this substantially revised edition of a classic work first published 25 years ago, she portrays the beliefs and customs of Scottish Gaelic society, including seasonal customs deriving from Celtic festivals, the famous waulking songs, the Highland tradition of seers and second sight, omens and taboos, chilling experiences of witchcraft, and rituals associated with birth and death.

Running with the Fairies: Towards a Transpersonal Anthropology of Religion is a unique account of the living spirituality and mysticism of fairyfolk in Ireland. Fairyfolk are fairyminded people who have had direct experiences with the divine energy and appearance of fairies, and fairypeople, who additionally know that they have been reincarnated from the Fairy Realm. While fairies have been folklore, superstition, or fantasy for most children and adults, now for the first time in a scholarly work, highly educated persons speak frankly about their religious/spiritual experiences, journeys, and transformations in connection with these angel-like spirit beings. Set in academic and popular historical perspectives, this first scholarly account of the Fairy Faith for over a hundred years, since believer Evans-Wentz’s 1911 published doctoral dissertation The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries, integrates a participatory, “going native” anthropology with transpersonal psychology. Providing extensive verbatim interviews and discussions, this path-breaking work recognizes the reality of nature spirit beings in a Western context. Through intensive on-site fieldwork, the PhD cultural anthropologist author discovers, describes and interviews authentic mystics aligned with these intermediary deific beings. With an extensive introduction placing fairies in the context of the anthropology of religion, animism, mysticism, and consciousness, this daring ethnography considers notions of “belief”, “perception”, and spiritual “experience”, and with intricate detail extends the focus of anthropological research on spirit beings which previously have been considered as locally real only in indigenous and Eastern cultures.

Tales of fairies at the bottom of the garden are usually dismissed as fantasy, but many ordinary people claim to have encountered them. Fairy lore has a long history, deeply ingrained in the folk memory of many different peoples and cultures. Janet Bord's fascinating investigation of this unexplored aspect of the supernatural reveals where you might be expected to meet fairies, under what circumstances, and what they would look or sound like. The author investigates the strong links that exist between sightings of fairies and of creatures alighting from UFOs. Are fairies beings from other planets, fallen angels, or our primitive ancestors? Whatever the verdict, the evidence of fairies is surprisingly convincing.
