Présentation de l'éditeur

The British Isles have long been seen as a place of mystery & magic. For many thousands of years successive waves of invaders each brought their own gods & goddesses with them, often assimilating the beliefs of the tribes they conquered. The Celtic races merged with the indigenous people, in turn conquered by the Romans, who brought with them deities from all over the Roman Empire including Greece & Egypt. After them came the Saxons & other Germanic tribes, further adding to the rich tapestry that forms part of our spiritual heritage today.
The Isles of the Many Gods brings together, for the first time, information on the worship of these deities in Britain, in an easy to use A-Z. It includes both the native & immigrant gods & goddesses, from well known gods like Apollo, Brigit, Freya, Herne, Isis, Mars & Woden to lesser known ones like Abandinus, Arianrhod, Genii Cucullati, Midir, Vitiris & the Wheel God.
There are more than 240 entries providing information regarding the evidence of their worship in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland & the Isle of Man. Drawing from archaeology, architecture, art, artefacts, currency, place-names & literature thereby providing an excellent reference work for those interested in the spiritual beliefs of our ancestors.

HASH(0x910b9228) étoiles sur 5 A Quick Introductory Primer in Mythology 27 avril 2012
Par Isolde - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
"The Isles of the Many Gods" takes on the Herculean task of identifying members of the British, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, Manx, and 'associated' pantheons of the British Isles present up until the medieval area. Fractured records, limited archaeological information, and few preserved stories from specific areas makes this a difficult subject at the best of times.

This book tackles the job well for an introductory work supported by primary sources, like the Welsh triads and the famous Irish cycles, but comes up woefully short in other areas. I use these resources extensively in my historical and classical writing on Celtic Britain and Ireland, and the book won't be on the well-used corner of my Kindle shelf.

Its strong points:
- A broad overview without preference towards one specific pantheon. Books often get tied up with the Irish traditions because they are the best documented, but lack on the others.
- Geographical references. Useful information on where the god in question was worshipped including primary shrines. Also, a boon, noting whether the deity in question was native. Many brought by the Roman legions came from as far afield as Persia or Africa.
- Historical overview that illustrates some of the problems, like deities attested only from inscriptions. We have a name and know nothing else for some of these.
- Quick, easy read.
- Clear writing style that doesn't become too academic or dry.
- Lesser known entries included. Especially nice for local figures who might not be otherwise known.
- Non-Arthurian links! Too many times, the Arthurian cycle gets absorbed into the deific books, but not here.

Weak points:
- Short, comparatively. This is not the most comprehensive record that notes every instance where individuals were found.
- Entries are not particularly long and in-depth.
- Sources are predominantly Roman and Irish. The front matter explains the difficulty in determining Scottish or Manx deities, and the relatively poor attribution to Welsh-speaking cultures that dominated northern Britain. I would have liked to see more done with the available material and links.
- Slim details about actual deific traditions and cults.
- Deific overlap. Certain gods who may be the same figure under multiple names, or associated with one another (Lugus, Lugh, etc.) aren't clarified consistently.

I was hoping for a bit deeper reference to Brythonic or Goidelic deities than I got from this. It's a nice jumping off point for someone new to folklore or out to learn a few details, but less helpful as a writer's resource or a historian/anthropologist's reference than other excellent publications.

HASH(0x910b9594) étoiles sur 5 Everything you need in one book! 11 mai 2007
Par Susan King - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wow, what a fantastic book!

I'm one of those people who, when doing research, hates to be surrounded by tons of different books searching through pages of useless info to find that 1 page that holds the information I'm looking for.

David and Sorita have done all the hard work for you here, a book that contains information on the Gods and Goddesses that were worshiped in Britain. Over 240 entries, this is a fantastic reference book.

Highly recommended.

A great read on the confusing history and stories of the Celtic gods. Information is bountiful, and details, such as area of worship and symbols, are added and explained. Family trees are added as well. Although not for someone new to this fierce pantheon, the information is invaluable.

HASH(0x910b6840) étoiles sur 5 So many Gods in such a small place 16 mai 2012
Par S. Cranow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Sorita D'Este and David Rankine have put together an awesome book that discusses all the Gods and Goddesses tht were were worshipped on the British Aisles. I think there were clese to 147 of them give or take a few. The deities come frm a variety of different pantheons ranging from Welsh, Irish,Gaulic,Saxon, Norse, Roman, Greek and Egyptian. There might have been a few I missed. That's a big infusion of Gods and Goddesses. The Britsih Aisle have been invaded by score of different people over the last millenia or so. The Roman and North European invasions have brought over the largest contribution of deities worshipped. I think the Romans brought over most of teh foreign deities save for the Norse and Saxon ones. The Romans conflated most of the deities or equated them to corresponding deities in their pantheon. The most popular was Jupiter.

Most of the entries are encylcopediac and numerous . There is a chart on the top which tells you their place of origin, where they were worshipped, what literary evidence reamin of them and their other names. The entries tell the reader what they were worshipped for and what areas of life they were in charge of. Entries also expalin what artifacts of them remain. Most deities have roughly half a page to maybe a page of information on them pending availability of knowledge available. Sometime there are scant remains or scant references to the various deities. Other deities have sometimes up to 5 pages on them and they are detailed.

For those who work magic and wish to work with British deities then this book gives a great over view. If you are using the kindle addition there is one drawback and that is not the fault of the author's but rather the technology. The charts are not big enough to fit on the page and there are these little arrows that make the other half show up. On some of there longer charts this can get rather cumbersome. Excellent book.

HASH(0x910b669c) étoiles sur 5 Wonderful contribution to the study of ancient Britain 18 septembre 2012
Par Hobbit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The Isle of the Many Gods is a wonderful new addition to the study of the deities in ancient Britain.
Rankine and D'Este provides a well researched, well written overview of the numerous gods and goddesses.
For each entry, the authors provide the origins of the deity's name, the place where they were
worshiped, literary references, and archaeological evidence (i.e. inscriptions, etc.) They stick to the
"facts" and avoid flying off into New Age fantasy. The text is both informative and enjoyable reading.
This is a wonderful book which I will refer to frequently!
