Mary of the Gael

Dublin Core

Title

Mary of the Gael

Description

Note: This 'legendary romance' is based upon the ancient and still current (though often hopelessly contradictory) legends concerning Brighid, or Bride, commonly known as ‘Muime Chriosd,' i.e. the Foster-Mother of Christ. From the universal honour and reverence in which she was and is held-second only in this respect to the Virgin herself- she is also called' Mary of the Gael.' Another name, frequent in the West, is ‘Brighde-nam-Bratj,' i.e. St. Bride of the Mantle, a name explained in the course of my legendary story. Brighid the Christian saint should not, however, as is commonly done, be confused with a much earlier and remoter Brighid, the ancient Celtic muse of Song.
