A very interesting pdf that explores the ancient Irish saga of Buile Suibhne in terms of Shamanism. It's clear that our Irish texts usually do have a religious \ cosmological foundation, and can tell us a lot about the belief system of the Druids and even earlier beliefs. Please copy and paste into your browser.

This is a photo of Tatsumi Hijikata by Eikoh Hosoe. I think it captures the plight of Suibhne perfectly.

Tadhg, in the OP you're linking to a file on your computer, not one we can access.


Gabh mo leithscéal a chara, thanks for letting me know. Hopefully that's corrected now.
