Dive into the symbolism of the sacred trees of the Druidic forest.
This book is intended for all lovers of divination, symbolism and mythology, for enthusiasts of Celtic and Druidic culture, and above all for those who pay deep respect to trees.
There are very few traces of the oghams, the sacred writing once reserved for druids in the Celtic world. However, this alphabet, in which each letter is associated with a plant, can be found on engraved stones in the United Kingdom or in the writings of the Irish monks of the 12th century. This complete book will allow you to grasp this hermetic language that can be compared to the Scandinavian runes, although it is less known. The author first discusses the history of the Celts and presents the druids and their mythology, particularly through quotes and Irish texts. She also discusses the symbolism of trees in different cultures, as well as their magical and divinatory aspect. Then, each letter is studied individually, with its etymology, the presentation of the tree or the plant in the secular world and the legends which allow us to better define its personality and to impregnate us of its magical and religious symbolism. All of this is enhanced with images and pictures.
This book is intended for all those drawn to symbolism and mythology, for enthusiasts of Celtic and Druidic culture, and above all for those who pay deep respect to trees.
