Klaniczay Gabor, Pocs Eva (Editors). Communicating with the Spirits: Christian Demonology and Popular Mythology (Demons, Spirits and Witches)
Series: Demons, Spirits and Witches | Publication Date: August 30, 2005

Focuses on the problem of communication with the other world: the phenomenon of spirit possession and its changing historical interpretations, the imaginary schemes elaborated for giving accounts of the joueys to the other world, for communicating with the dead, and finally the historical archetypes of this kind of religious manifestation-trance prophecy, divination, and shamanism. Recognized historians and ethnologists analyze the relationship, coexistence and conflicts of popular belief systems, Judeo-Christian mythology and demonology in medieval and mode Europe. The essays address links between rites and beliefs, folklore and literature; the legacy of various pre-Christian mythologies; the syncretic forms of ancient, medieval and mode belief- and rite-systems; "pure" examples from religious-ethnological research outside Europe to elucidate European problems.

New York: Facts on File, 2004. - 512 p. What we know today as Celtic culture is based in part upon biased literature written by enemies of the Celts, and in part upon oral traditions written down in medieval or later times in lands where the Celts mingled with other tribal people; both sources raise questions even as they answer them. But scholars have other ways of finding information about the Celts that are not reliant upon these potentially...
